Engineering Students to Study Micro- and Nanosystems in Eastern Europe
Materials Science and Engineering Students Win Best Poster at Professional Meetings Duong presented the poster -- Combined Raman Spectroscopy and SEM Analysis of CVD Grown Carbon Nanotubes -- at the annual meeting of the Microscopy Society of America and the Microbeam Analysis Society, held in August 2008 in Albuquerque, N.M. Duong did the work while she was still an undergraduate student in Materials Science and Engineering.
John Reagan Gets Lifetime Achievement Award for Laser Atmospheric Work The International Coordination-group for Laser Atmospheric Studies (ICLAS) has honored John Reagan, professor emeritus in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
John Reagan Gets Lifetime Achievement Award for Laser Atmospheric Work Professor Reagan received the award June 27 at the 24th International Laser Radar Conference (ILRC) in Boulder, Colo., where he presented a paper and a poster, and where the ILRC was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Professor Reagan attended the very first ILRC, also in Boulder, in 1968.
Engineering Seniors Pick Interdisciplinary Capstone Design Projects More than 250 engineering seniors gathered in the student union ballroom Aug. 28 to meet sponsors from senior capstone projects. Representatives from industry, faculty and student clubs gave talks and presentations about the approximately 70 capstone projects available for seniors to choose from. The finished projects will be presented at Engineering Design Day in May 2009.

UA Baja Racing Organizes Meeting and Barbecue to Recruit New Members The Baja Racing team held its first orientation session of the year Aug. 31 in AME. A welcome-back barbecue followed so that newcomers could meet the returning team.
UA Baja Racing Organizes Meeting and Barbecue to Recruit New Members The Baja SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) engineering design team at the UA consists of undergraduate students from varying disciplines and backgrounds with the common goal of developing their education. Team members range from freshmen to fifth-year seniors, from engineers to businessmen and women. Baja gives students the opportunity for professional development while experiencing a hands-on approach to the theories learned in classrooms.
Aerial Robotics Team Awarded Prize at IARC The UA Aerial Robotics Club (ARC) was awarded $1,200 prize money Aug. 1 at the 2008 International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC) awards banquet in Fort Benning, Ga. The team will use the award to cover the cost of entering next year’s competition. Although the UA team did not get the chance to demonstrate the full range of its system’s capabilities, it is looking forward to next year’s competition. “We still had a great time at the event and we gained a lot of valuable experience from it,” said a team member on the ARC blog. “The team seems to be stronger than ever and we are all incredibly excited about next year’s event."
Solar Road Warriors Cruise to Success The University of Arizona solar racing team headed to Texas July 4 for the American Solar Challenge, confident it had overcome problems that scuppered its chances in the 2005 race. Nineteen days later, against tremendous odds, the team finished in tenth place.
Lego Robots Promote Engineering Education The conference was organized, with help from Tufts University, by the Lego Robotics Outreach Club, or RoboClub, which was formed in 2008 by mechanical engineering students and their faculty advisor, professor Eniko Enikov, to promote engineering, science and math education using Lego materials as a teaching tool.
