Aprovecho Research Center in Cottage Grove, Oregon is looking for an undergraduate engineering intern to help with design and testing of biomass cookstoves this summer. Working with several other interns from the University of Dayton, the student will participate in research including running experiments to measure air quality, cookstove efficiency, and emissions using the ARC Laboratory Emissions Monitoring System (LEMS) and other sensors.
Over spring break 2019, fresh humanitarian engineering graduates Jennifer Ventrella (MS Mechanical Engineering with dual MS in Applied Anthropology) and Dr. Mohammad Pakravan (Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering with Economics minor), advised by Dr. Nordica MacCarty, were funded to display their innovation at the VentureWell OPEN Minds Exhibition. The Exibition was the crowning event of the VentureWell OPEN conference focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship and held at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History on March 30th, 2019.
The humanitarian engineering and design programs are pleased to have received an MIME Strategic Excellence grant to bring in Dr. Nathan Johnson from Airzona State University. Please join us.
