Porticos Sponsored NCSU Senior Design Team was awarded 1st Place for Best In Show and overall 1st Place in Textile Engineering for their work with the Porticool vest.
This team explored integrative strategies for regulating the flow in the vest, in order to maximize cooling throughout the user for a longer period of time.
Students Peiheng Feng, Jordan Lohn, Emily McGuinness, and Emily Price worked directly with Porticos CTO Kevin Carpenter.
“This was an exceptional group of undergraduates, and we at Porticos were proud to have a small part in their educational experience,” said Kevin. “We’ll certainly continue to mentor and support these now-graduates as they begin their careers in engineering and textiles.”
