The open house was held in the Tennessee Room of the James Union Building. It was open to the public and campus community.

In addition to poster presentations with hands-on projects, student work on display will include the solar boat, Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and lunar rover. Student awards for the 2015-16 academic year were presented.
