Meet Our Students

Marianne Sleiman, a junior chemical engineering major from Greenville, Rhode Island, is one of three Commonwealth Honors College students at the University of Massachusetts Amherst to receive scholarships for work in the natural sciences and engineering as part of the highly competitive Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program. Goldwater scholarships are intended to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue careers in the fields of mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Each competing university nominated its top four students, who were then...

Senior Angela Berthaume of the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department, who works part-time as a career advisor in the Career and Student Development Center, is the perfect person to offer good advice to incoming students at the College of Engineering. The crux of her advice is simple: Start networking as soon as you hit the campus! You can do that by joining various student engineering societies, visiting the college’s Career and Student Development Center, asking your professors for advice, beginning to set up summer internships, co-ops, and...

“Come to M5 for Tech Talks and Workshops by Facebook, Dropbox, Intel, Fitbit, Circuitmaker, OpenBCI, Pair, RSA, Autodesk, Barnstorm Studio, and many more to come!” It is any tech-driven student’s ultimate dream.

This is all part of the vision for the UMass Tech Talk Series, a totally student-run initiative that was presented throughout the spring semester in M5, the official makerspace of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department. During that time, M5 hosted 22 Tech Talks attended by nearly 300 participants. It was an...

Engineering is undoubtedly one of the most demanding majors at any university. Engineering students wouldn’t want it any other way. But that engineering degree of difficulty didn’t stop a passel of hard-pressed engineering students from standing out as intercollegiate competitors, sports stars, and Renaissance students this past year.

Any discussion of our outstanding scholar-athletes must begin with the UMass Men’s Swimming Team, in which four students from our Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department torpedoed their way to glory throughout the season, and...

The pioneering Minuteman Launch Team is the first group of UMass students to enter the NASA Student Launch competition, and the team members are extremely excited at the prospect of launching a high-powered rocket, scheduled for takeoff in April of 2015 at the Marshall Spaceflight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. You can help launch our College of Engineering team on its way to Alabama by donating used two-liter soda bottles for a college outreach event starting March 23. Please drop off bottles in Marston 126 anytime between now and March 23. Note that your bottles will actually be...

On April 5, Chemical Engineering (ChE) major Cory Thomas of Tewksbury, Massachusetts, was honored as the 2017 UMass Amherst Male Winter Scholar-Athlete. During his highly productive undergraduate education at UMass Amherst, Thomas has run several of the fastest times in the history of the university, maintained a 3.2 GPA in the challenging ChE curriculum, completed two demanding internships, and devoted himself to pursuing a pharmaceutical engineering career motivated by his mother’s spirited fight to overcome...

Senior Jeremiah Davis of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department won a Senior Leadership Award, which recognizes graduating seniors who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to the UMass Amherst community. Award...

The Senior Design Capstone course in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department – called MIE 415 or “The Design of Mechanical Systems” – has made a quantum leap in the number of sponsored projects its students are working on this semester. This required course for every MIE senior, which is designed as the zenith of the entire undergraduate engineering education for every student in the department, currently features 13 industry-sponsored projects introduced by 10 sponsoring companies in need of creative, practical, and economical mechanical designs from our budding...
