SPRINGFIELD, MA -- Steven R. Ferreira of Tewksbury is among more than 175 students who presented their Freshman Innovation Project at the Western New England University College of Engineering's 2016 Emerging Expo held on the University campus. Ferreira's project is entitled "The Bike Directional".

Freshman Product Innovation projects allow students to gain experience and knowledge at an early stage of their education with innovation and design of a new product. It helps students to better understand what they can expect during the next few years as an Engineering student at Western New England University and gives them a chance to showcase their talents at the very beginning of their educational journey. Showcasing their work alongside the Senior Design projects gives first year students something to aspire to and allows them to gain invaluable knowledge from their peers.

Dr. Behzad Behnia, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was the Faculty Advisor for this project.

U.S. News and World Report has named Western New England University to its "Best in Undergraduate Engineering" list, a category encompassing college and university engineering programs nationwide that focus primarily on undergraduate education.

Western New England University is a private, independent, coeducational institution founded in 1919. Located on an attractive 215-acre suburban campus in Springfield, Massachusetts, Western New England serves 3,955 students, including 2,575 full-time undergraduate students.
