Custom Technologies is Collaborating with UCF Students, Providing Guidance and Mentoring

St. Louis, MO, November 23, 2022 --( Custom Technologies, a full-spectrum product engineering and manufacturing firm, is announcing it is collaborating with students at the University of Central Florida (UCF). The firm delivered a 15-minute pitch to the COP 4934 Senior Design I class, and a group selected their open-ended problem to solve.

The capstone project will end with COP 4935 Senior Design II. During this two-semester-long course, Custom Technologies will provide limited guidance and mentoring.

“Custom Technologies is proud to be teaming with the bright students at UCF to tackle systemic issues that plague small businesses today,” said Nicholas Huesemann, VP of Operations at Custom Technologies. “Together, we're addressing inventory management in a uniquely modern approach to create a more efficient data collection system for small assembly and manufacturing operations.”

In COP 4934 Senior Design I, students are exposed to various potential project topics from faculty members and representatives from local industry or non-profit organizations. Then, students form groups and jointly agree on a project topic with the instructor. By the end of the semester, the overall approach and design of the project are completed.

In COP 4935 Senior Design II, students implement their project to completion. Teams give a formal final project presentation to the instructor, sponsor, and two other faculty members, all of whom evaluate the project and presentation. A written final project document is also submitted to the instructor and sponsor. Additionally, students participate in UCF’s Senior Design Showcase.
