More than 40 researchers, ranging from senior researchers to both graduate and undergraduate students, were featured on Friday during the third-annual Mechanical and Materials Engineering Research Fair.
The event, which was spread throughout the first floors of Scott Engineering Center and Othmer Hall, is a showcase of research being performed in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. It also affords undergraduate students the opportunity to learn about graduate programs in that department, programs such as: Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, Materials Engineering and Biomedical Engineering.
Researchers presented their posters and were on hand to explain their research. Prizes were awarded in poster competitions for undergraduate- and graduate-student research.
