MSE Students Participated in Research Colloquium

The Graduate Student Government held its annual Research Colloquium in early February.

MSE graduate student Tianle Cheng was recognized as outstanding graduate student scholar for her research, publications, presentations, academics, and collaboration with other students. She was nominated by Associate Professor Yu Wang.

Two MSE teams gave oral presentations:

Andrew Baker and Professor Stephen Kampe: “Effect of Melt-Spinning Parameters on the Formation of MnAl6 Quasicrystals.”

Ananyo Bandyopadhyay and Associate Professor Gregory Odegard: “Molecular Modeling of Epoxy Polymers.”

Two MSE teams presented posters:

Andrew Baker and Stephen Kampe: “Effect of Melt-Spinning Parameters on the Formation of MnAl6 Quasicrystals,” which earned second place.

Chungja Yang, Chun-Jen Wu, Agnes Ostafin, and Associate Professor Adrienne Minerick: “Dielectrophoretic Response of Polystyrene Particles and Perfluorocarbon oil-core, Chitosan/Poly-L-lysine shell Nanoparticles.”

Frank Best, a 1975 forestry alumnus and middle-school science teacher at Menominee Catholic Central, is bringing two groups of sixth, seventh and eighth grade students to Michigan Tech for a hands-on science experience on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 13-14. While the students are at Tech, they will also see a MSE demonstration and visit Nara Nature Park as part of a SFRES program.


Senior Design vs. Enterprise

View the news article

Emily Durham, graduating senior from the materials science and engineering program, felt that the “extended experience” is what she appreciated most about enterprise. “The best way I have come to describe enterprise is an extended senior design project.” Durham will have been a part of the Enterprise program for six semesters once she receives her bachelor’s degree in May. Her experience with the program helped her gain a summer internship with a major company in the metals industry.
