Meet Our Students

Just before this semester began, our Career Development and Experiential Learning Center hosted its second-annual Career Boot Camp, a two-part, hands-on, career workshop conducted for about 40 masters and doctoral students in the College of Engineering. According to Graduate Career Coordinator Christina Mata, who ran the program, “The purpose of the Career Boot Camp is to give grad students an overview of the career development process here at the College of Engineering and provide them with the tools to start that process.”

Over Spring Break, from March 11 to March 18, a group of four chemical engineering sophomores painted and repaired damaged houses in New Orleans as part of the ServeUP InterVarsity Christian Fellowship program, a ministry of campuses in New England committed to exposing students to the intersection of faith and service. The four ChE students joined two teams of 14 students from UMass Amherst and about 66 students from the Five College area in the annual service program. The four ChE students were Bryan Chua, Navin Sundaramurthy, Ricardo Valdes, and Kyaw Htet Paing.

During the spring semester of 2016, seven students from the Chemical, Mechanical and Industrial, and Civil and Environmental Engineering Departments are participating in the college’s study abroad program by spending five months at Heriot Watt University, located in Edinburgh, Scotland. We say “thanks” and give the tip of a hat to Professor Sarah Perry for nominating two of the students and asking one of them, Meaghan O’Brien, to write her impressions of her experiences overseas.

The seven students, pictured from left to right in the accompanying photo, are Adin Bohmiller,...

Senior Mechanical Engineering Major Jamar Hawkins is among a small group of students who have been selected to receive the 2017-2018 UMass Amherst Rising Researcher student achievement award. This award recognizes exceptional UMass Amherst undergraduate students who excel in research, scholarship, or creative activity. Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Professor Yubing Sun nominated Hawkins for the award in recognition of his student’s research and academic achievements conducted under Professor’s Sun’s direction....

One of the many passions of senior chemical engineering major Lucas Blauch – who is an accomplished guitarist, band leader, and certified Little League umpire from Harvard, Massachusetts – is making certain that the UMass Amherst chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) fulfills the professional needs of the students in his department. 

“What we’re trying to do this year is bring the entire chemical engineering group on campus together, especially the underclassmen, to educate them about the many opportunities for professional chemical engineers,”...

On Friday, April 28, seniors from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECE) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst displayed and demonstrated 28 creative electronic inventions for the public. ECE hosted its 27th annual Senior Design Project Day on campus, when 28 teams of seniors unveiled a high-tech floor show for the electronics of the future. The public review of these senior design projects happened at the Gunness Engineering Student Center of Marcus Hall on the UMass Amherst campus from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., when students displayed their devices, demonstrated...
