ENGINEERING STUDENTS BUILD WEBSITES AND SOFTWARE PROGRAMS FOR BUSINESSES
Back to All News
The group projects include a
website for Peace for Paws (an animal welfare organization based in Ohio), an
online energy evaluation system for power plants, and a software support
website for Muka Development Group’s Breakthrough software application.
Julian Alessi, Reginald McLeod, William Salgado, and Guriqbal Singh built a
complete website for Peace for Paws. Peace for Paws helps find permanent
homes for both dogs and cats from shelters around Ohio, especially animals that
are in danger of being euthanized. The website allows the general public
to search for pets based on many criteria such as size, gender, location, and
most importantly, by euthanasia date. It also allows the shelter and rescue
staff to keep track of an animal status and facilitate the adoptions. This
project is part of IBM’s program Software for a Cause, where volunteers build
software to assist non-profit organizations to achieve their goals.
Jenna Cable, James Pareja, and Michael Perini developed an online energy
evaluation system to help industrial plants manage their electrical load to
reduce energy costs. The system allows the user to create a custom energy
profile that mirrors their energy usage. Based on the defined energy
loads, the system is able to calculate the daily energy usage, daily energy
cost, and the power factor. The system is also able to create a total power
usage chart based on data from the last twenty-four hours. The users of the
system will be power plants as well as any companies who wish to reduce their
Robert Bell, Alexander Muka, and Enoabasi Sunday created a software support website
for Muka Development Group’s Breakthrough software application. This
project will allow clients of Breakthrough software to have access to training
videos, frequently asked questions, and new features of the product for each
new version of the system.
