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.
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Kenneth A. Loparo, Nord Professor of Engineering and chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, to its College of Fellows.
Loparo was nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for the development of advanced signal processing techniques to improve monitoring, detection, and diagnosis in critical care, epilepsy, and sleep.
Celebrate the creativity of science at the opening reception of Kelvin Smith Library’s “Art of STEM” exhibit with a free reception Wednesday, April 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. The science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related digital images that were entered in the corresponding art competition earlier this year will be on display at the Kelvin Smith Library Art Gallery on the library’s first floor.
Two local high school students working with faculty labs at the Case School of Engineering have been earning statewide—and even national—recognition for their research.
Francesca Fabe, a junior at Beaumont School in Cleveland Heights, has earned top prizes at three science fairs for her work investigating the fatigue of dental arch wires. She has been working with Janet Gbur, a PhD student in the lab of John Lewandowski, the Arthur P. Armington Professor of Engineering in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.
