Texas A&M, Corpus Christi - Senior Design

Engineering Design Services has once again sponsored and mentored a senior design team at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. This year's team will focus on building an aquaponic system for sustainable agriculture.

The system will consist of a basin, pumps, lights and garden beds to create a symbiotic environment for the growth of plants and fish. Waste water from the fish is pumped through the garden beds to be filtered, feeding the plants. The filtered water is then returned to the fishes environment.

Shale Magazine - State of Energy Luncheon

Engineering Design Services was a sponsor of the Shale Magazine State of Energy Luncheon. The team was in attendance to hear about the Port of Corpus Christi's future goals and learn about possible opportunities in the Corpus Christi area.

ACIT Golf Outing

Our President, Michael Hall, and our VP of Finance, Will Messer, attended the ACIT golf outing where they golfed with the Plant Manager of Oxy, Rick Ritter, and the Plant Manager of Chemours, Mark Reyes. EDS proudly supports the Association of Chemical Industry of Texas.

TM Career and Technical Education Symposium

Engineering Design Services was asked to attend the Tuloso-Midway CTE Symposium to represent the renewable energy pathway. EDS talked with current and former students about what it is like to work in industry, our use of technology - like drones, and what it is like to be an engineer. We hope to help encourage today's youth to pursue careers in STEM fields.

Tuloso-Midway Homecoming Parade

Engineering Design Services took part in the Tuloso-Midway homecoming parade. We used one of our vehicles to tow the special education students throughout the parade.

2020 Events & Involvement

Texas A&M, Corpus Christi - Senior Design

Engineering Design Services LLC sponsored a senior design team at Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi. The 2020 team focused on the design, engineering and construction of a remotely operated robot for the inspection and lubrication of guy wires (the wires used to hold up cell towers and flare stacks).

The robot was designed to attached to multiple sizes of wires, inspect the wires via a hall-effect based sensor, and then apply a lubricant to the wire to prevent corrosion. The goal of the robot was to make guy wire lubrication and inspection safer by reducing the number of people and the amount of elevated work required to perform the work scope.

2019 Events & Involvement

desal

Texas A&M, Corpus Christi - Senior Design

Engineering Design Services LLC sponsored a senior design team at Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi. The 2020 team focused on the design, engineering and construction of a solar powered desalination skid. The skid was designed to generate fresh water from contaminated water.

Water was placed in a still that was heated via solar power until it boiled. The water vapor was then condensed and collected separately to produce purified drinking water. The team won first place for their efforts!
