Students Place Third at National Engineering Competition

Students Place Third at National Engineering Competition

Create “the next great embedded technology invention.” That was the challenge of the Intel-Cornell Cup, a national engineering competition for student inventors, held in May at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

In the minds of four Royal engineers, the next big thing is a Universal Motor Controller Embedded System that eliminates the need to build separate circuits for individual motors. The team imagined a time-saving device that can power several pieces of technology simultaneously.

The idea was good enough to net the team a third-place finish among just 22 teams in the country who had made it to the final round.

The Royal engineers were Nathan Williams, Carbondale, a junior electrical engineering major and team leader; Luke Alonso, Chester Brook, a freshman electrical engineering major; Timothy Thomas, Lake Ariel, a junior electrical engineering major; and Benjamin Degler, Saylorsburg, a graduate computer-science student. They were advised by Nicholas Truncale, a faculty specialist in physics and electrical engineering.
