Honors Projects and Posters
University Honors Program

The Honors project is potentially the most valuable component of an Honors education. Typically Honors students choose to do their projects in their area of study, but some will pick a topic of interest unrelated to their major.

The Honors Program requires that the project be presented at a poster presentation event. Poster presentations are held each semester. Most students present during their senior year, but may do so earlier if their honors project has been completed.

This site presents project descriptions and selected posters for Honors projects completed since the Fall 2015 semester.

Abstract

Design and fabrication of a microfluidic channel is fundamental to all microfluidic applications. The commonly used silicon wafer templates are expensive and take a long time to produce. There are demand for microfluidic devices in resource-poor environments such as biological assays of blood and urine as well as potential technologies that could stem from microfiber creation, such as enhanced drug delivery substrates and microbial resistant bandages.
