Hello everyone! I hope your Spring Semesters finished on a great note and you are now preparing to join us in Atlanta for the ASEE Annual conference June 23-26! I am looking forward to seeing all student chapter officers during our annual Student Chapter Officer Meeting on Tuesday, June 25 from 2:15 PM to 3:45 PM at the Omni CNN Center Hotel, Omni – International Ballroom C.
Find out about some great papers and presentations for engineering students featured at the 2013 ASEE Annual Conference (below the cut).
From workshops to panels, the popular “tricks of the trade” sessions, and some great social events, myriad sessions at the annual conference should grab the interests of student members. Here are a few from the first two days of meetings:
A range of in-depth workshops are offered on Sunday, including one on MOOCs and the online revolution ($30 registration), the free Cyber tools for fast feedback workshop, and another free one on exploring the emerging taxonomy for engineering education research.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced their 2013 Student Paper Competition. The theme for this year’s competition is, “Standards and Emerging Technology Decisions – What Role Do Standards Play in Disaster Recovery and Business Recovery?” $4,000 in prizes are up for grabs with a deadline of April 15, 2013. The paper must be written and submitted by an enrolled college or university student(s) at the associate, undergraduate, or graduate level in a U.S. academic institute of higher learning. It is open to students of all disciplines.
Six years before Hurricane Sandy swamped large swaths of New York City in a deadly storm surge, freshman engineering students at the Cooper Union were preparing for the worst. As part of Anne Dudek Ronan’s Engineering Design and Problem Solving course, they prepared conceptual barrier designs for coastal waterways to protect the city from super-storm floods.
