An enterprising group of undergraduate researchers, working on cutting-edge projects, will present a joint poster session of their summertime Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) on Friday, August 4, from 10:00 a.m. until noon in the Campus Center Auditorium at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. All the posters will be on display for visitors, and the student researchers will be available to explain each project in understandable language for nonscientists. See College of Engineering REU page

The group of researchers includes 15...

An article triggered by a College of Engineering and UMass News Office release about the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department’s 25th annual Senior Design Day was picked up by the Associated Press and appeared in media across the nation. The Hampshire Gazette published the UMass release, and the AP distributed the resulting Gazette article. Projects ranged from those that help the blind, a “smart kitchen,” digital exercise advice, and an aerial camera for video-taping action sports....

Ashley Kaiser, a junior undergraduate student from Hopkinton, Massachusetts, has packed a lot of varied accomplishment into her years as a major in the Chemical Engineering Department. She’s a member of the Commonwealth Honors College with a cumulative GPA of 3.97 and has made the Dean’s List from 2013 through 2015. In addition, she’s a member of the UMass student chapters of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Tau Beta Pi, and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).

Ashley was a speaker at SWE’s 2015 Women in Engineering Day, which hosted some 250 high school...

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is one of the most noteworthy and commendable organizations on campus, a sort of Peace Corps for engineers in which the student members travel to disadvantaged countries and apply their education to improve the quality of life of local residents. Now you can become a virtual member of the UMass Amherst chapter of EWB by helping to fund wells in Kenya and Ghana that will deliver safe drinking water to many thousands of subsistence farmers who struggle for survival in some of the world’s most challenging environments.

Charlene Nalubega, a junior industrial engineering major whose family now lives in Ashland, Massachusetts, is spending much of her time in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department working toward a noble goal. Nalubega came to the United States in 2009 from Uganda, and someday after she has become a professional engineer she would like to return there to help her country’s development and progress. “I wanted to do industrial engineering because there are a lot of systems in my country that are developed, but they need improvement,” says Nalubega. “As an industrial...
