A new app designed for golfers delivers food and supplies straight to their cart, UTD engineering students are recognized nationally in a project competition, and Uber has a new feature for users who prefer to plan ahead.

University of Texas at Dallas students placed first at a student project competition, the 2016 Capstone Design Conference. The mechanical and biomedical engineering students outranked competitors from 21 other schools around the country, including Georgia Tech and Carnegie Melon University. As a part of the UTDesign senior capstone project, the winning team developed a device to help in the treatment of fecal incontinence. Using 3D printing for prototypes, UT Dallas officials say the project could have a significant impact on health care. See what projects other competing UT Dallas teams developed.
