The Case School of Engineering will host the Saint-Gobain Student Design Competition finals on Wednesday, April 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.
Guests can vote for their favorite team; the team with the most audience votes will win a $500 award. Food will also be provided at the event.
The Saint-Gobain competition encourages students from across schools to design and build a prototype device that takes an existing material and, using principles of materials science and engineering, create a new and innovative use for it that solves a problem for society.
Mohsen Seifi, a doctoral researcher in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, was selected as one of the two 2015 Henry DeWitt Smith Scholars by the Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS). He was recognized at TMS 2015—the 144th annual Meeting & Exhibition in Orlando—where he officially accepted the award from Behrooz Fattahi, president of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME).
Established in 1967, the award was created to assist worthy students in the pursuit of their graduate education in the mining, metallurgical, materials or petroleum departments of leading universities and colleges. The awards are individually administered by the four AIME member societies. Recipients of the scholarship receive a check in amount of $3,000.
