The UNT College of Engineering Students held the first Design Day on April 29, 2011. Five teams of computer engineering students and two teams of information technology students presented their research projects. In the morning, they participated in a poster presentation and later, they presented their team projects before an audience of faculty, peers, and invited members of industry. Students from other College of Engineering programs also presented at Design Day 2011.
