    Chattanooga Engineers Club Monthly Presentation

    Monday, June 28, 2021

    12:00 noon

    UT Chattanooga Solar Splash Competition in 2021

    SOLAR SPLASH® is the World Championship of Collegiate Solar Boating, and it takes place over five days. Technical Inspections are done on the first day, and the remainder of the time is occupied by five on-the-water competitive events. Points are earned in 7 categories starting with Technical reports that are submitted before teams arrive at the competition. On-site competitions include Visual Displays and Workmanship. On-the-water events begin with a Sprint and Endurance qualifier. This is followed by an event called the Slalom, which is a combination of speed and maneuverability. The final days are spent in the Sprint and Endurance events.

    The competition serves as an opportunity for students to compete and showcase their accomplishments. Students learn to use solar energy for transportation purposes and get hands-on experience with sustainable energy, energy management, and the importance of efficiency and good design.

    This is the first time UT-Chattanooga is competing in the Solar Splash event which comes with a lot of excitement but also a lot of challenges. As a rookie team with no mechanical engineering student to the team, the all EE-student team has to make some smart choices to at least get a solar powered boat to the competition. The team is comprised of five students (Leo James, Tyler Jones, Mitchell Thomas, Kristie Williams, Brianna Wise) with two faculty advisors (Dr. Ofoli and Dr. Karrar). All five student team members and one faculty went to the event in Springfield, Ohio which was from June 8 to June 12. Please join us for an update from the students’ speakers Brianna Wise, Tyler Jones, and Mitchell Thomas and also the faculty advisor(s). Our hope is that the Chattanooga community will strongly support this new initiative going forward for years to come.

    For additional information before the meeting, please visit

    You will receive access information via email after registration within a confirmation email and a couple of follow-up reminder emails closer to the meeting.

    This event should qualify for 1 PDH.

    Chattanooga Engineers Club 

    Monday, August 9, 2021

    Around Engineers Week 2018, Bryan College announced that The Vogel School of Engineering will open its doors to students in the upcoming fall semester. The school is named for alumnus Brigadier General George B. Vogel who, with his wife Doris, provided a substantial gift for the new school.

    Chattanooga Engineers Club members visited the new school and met some of the freshmen on February 11, 2019.  Since then, faculty members and students have participated in CEC meetings and E Week events.  Chattanooga E Week, ASME Chattanooga and Chattanooga Regional Manufacturing Association presented E Week scholarship to five students this year.

    Dr. Lyle Smith, Dean of Vogel School of Engineering, will provide an overview and updates. Justin Porter, Chair of the Industry Advisory Board, Electrical Engineer/Chief of Staff to CTO at Unum, will share news on the first graduating class.  CEC's own Paul Snyder and Lulu Copeland, serving on the IAB, will provide comments on how the engineering community can support these future engineers.

    Chandler Hinson, current student, will have a short presentation on the VEX Robotics Club launching this fall semester.

    online meeting access information will be provided to registered attendees.
