Dear Students, Parents, Alumni/ae, and Friends of the School of Engineering,
Broncos, we are so close to the end of the fall quarter! As we approach the holiday season, please take a moment to reflect on what you are thankful for. I am grateful for our community of passionate scholars, incredible students, dedicated staff, and devoted alumni/ae and friends of the School of Engineering. Read below about an alumnus who has pioneered a sustainable method of 3D printing that can forever change manufacturing, a recipient of the 2022 IEEE PES Scholarship Plus John W. Estey Outstanding Scholar Award, and more.
Wishing you all a restful Thanksgiving,
Elaine P. Scott, Ph.D.
School of Engineering
Fall 2022 Engineering News is live! Read about our faculty, staff, and students' stories in our fall newsletter: from our IEEE Fellows, an abstract musical sculpture inspired by creative AI, Engineers Without Borders work in Rwanda, and so much more! Read the Fall 2022 Engineering News here.
Call for Artists: Knowing, as we do, that engineers are among the most interesting people on the planet, we want to celebrate our community's many talents with an exhibition of SCU School of Engineering students, faculty, staff, and alumni/ae artwork. We invite the School of Engineering community to apply to be a part of this year's Engineering eWeek Art Showcase, Feb. 17 - Feb. 26, 2023.
Mark Your Calendars for “Day of Giving” on April 12, 2023. Every gift counts!
Congratulations to Yi Fang (Computer Science and Engineering) for receiving a $34,999 award from DOCOMO Innovations, Inc. to support his project "Fairness and Accountability of Machine Learning in Search Engines." They "will study various sources of biases in information retrieval and propose metrics to quantify fairness of search systems. Particularly, they "will explore a novel meta-learning approach to fair search ranking by optimizing a wide range of search utility metrics while satisfying fairness and accountability constraints with respect to users and the searched items."
Congratulation to Sofia Brumbaugh ’23 for receiving the IEEE PES Scholarship Plus John W. Estey Outstanding Scholar Award. “The award is distributed annually to the top PES Scholar in each of the six IEEE U.S. regions and Canada.” Recipients of this award are undergraduate students majoring in electrical engineering who are committed to exploring the power and energy field and are high achievers with strong GPAs with distinctive extracurricular commitments.
Santa Clara Formula SAE is a newly registered student organization that aims to "provide students with a practical application of the knowledge gained through college curricula, experience working in a collaborative environment, and a fantastic opportunity to network with other students, faculty, and companies." Please visit their website to meet the team and learn more about the organization.
James DeMuth ’08 (Mechanical Engineering) "has pioneered a method of 3D printing that could change manufacturing forever." DeMuth, CEO and co-founder of Seurat Technologies, says that they are ready to build a more open, innovative ecosystem that includes “local facilities throughout the world using green technology to 3D print custom parts and components when and where they're needed.” Read the full story here.
Congratulations to Claire Wemp ’16 (Mechanical Engineering) for receiving the SWE Conference, Rising Technical Contributor Award. The award is "Bestowed upon a SWE member at the professional or graduate student level, who has been actively engaged in the fields of engineering or engineering technology and has individually contributed technical work resulting in significant breakthroughs or results." Claire received this award for her "deep technical expertise in thermal management and heat transfer; for strong organizational skills that have increased engineering laboratory efficiency; and for consistent outreach and community engagement in STEM."
