Eaton sponsors University of Michigan’s Multidisciplinary Design Program

  • 14-Dec-2012 09:59 EST

Eaton Corp. will provide opportunities for University of Michigan students to work on relevant, hands-on projects as a sponsor of the university’s Multidisciplinary Design Program (MDP). The MDP challenges students to solve problems and create breakthroughs for sponsoring industries through multidiscipline team collaboration. Eaton will work with MDP faculty members to present project challenges to student teams, along with predetermined financial and business resources to support their efforts. For the first MDP project, a student team will focus on developing a robust, predictive, and validated fire-resistance model for Eaton’s high-performance quick-disconnect products. Quick-disconnects are self-sealing couplings that enable fast, easy, and reliable connections and disconnections of lube oil, coolant, hydraulic, and fuel systems for a wide range of commercial and military aircraft. Students will use the model to create new product designs with enhanced fire-resistance capability.
