Spring 2014 Undergraduate Research Poster Forum


The first Engineering Undergraduate Research Poster Forum on April 22 in the College of Engineering Atrium included 22 poster presentations from five different engineering departments. Research topics included advanced manufacturing and materials, energy, nuclear engineering and sensors, and systems and networks, among other topics. Twenty-six faculty, staff and graduate students were involved in judging the posters, and many others stopped by to view the research posters.Winners at the spring 2014 contest were Caleb Chiroy and Andres Martinez (top picture right and left, respectively, with Assoc. Dean Noel Schulz), both mechanical engineering, splitting the first-place $300 scholarship for their work with Asst. professor Amy Betz, “Effects of micro-structured surface geometries on condensation heat transfer”; Taylor Ochs (above with Assoc. Dean Noel Schulz), mechanical and nuclear engineering, with Professor Douglas McGregor, “Fabrication of current-generation microstructured semiconductor neutron detectors.”
