CCTI students capture first in design contest

Three Carbon Career & Technical Institute students teamed up to take first place recently in the Synergis University Design Contest.

Team members were Dominic Collins, Anthony Muniz and Craig Conville.

The students, in the Drafting and Design Technology Department at CCTI, participated in a day of learning at Synergis University in Bethlehem.

The day was capped off by their win in the contest, in which the objective was for teams to design the most creative weapon (implement) for use on a robotic “battle-bot.”

Teams began with a base model and were tasked with attaching their weapon/implement to the model. The software used was Software: Autodesk Fusion 360.

Synergis University is the Mid-Atlantic’s largest, single-day Autodesk learning event, offering more than 30 educational sessions for architects, manufacturers, engineers, CAD users, technology enthusiasts, and anyone else who uses Autodesk design and engineering software.
