Science Pub Portland: Designing Robots to Walk and Run
Join Jonathan Hurst, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State University. Designing passive dynamics, which are generated by the mechanical hardware, and software control algorithms together in tight integration can drastically improve the performance of a machine as measured by efficiency, agility, and robustness to disturbances.
April 18 | 7 p.m. | Empirical Theater at OMSI
Biomedical Engineering Society Industry Panel Event
The goal of this event is to provide students interested in Biomedical Engineering the opportunity to present research, network, learn about professionals in the industry, get answers to graduate school questions and gain valuable advice about life after graduation in the biotech industry. Event includes hot d’oeuvres and beverages, a student poster session, a panel of five industry members, and networking time. Please arrive in business casual attire. More information.

Thermal Fluid Science Seminar with Dr. Adrienne Little from X (formally known as Google [X])
What’s Hot in Heat Transfer: Combining Perspectives from Academia, Government, and Industry on the Next Generation of Thermal Energy Systems
The vast majority of energy conversion processes occur through thermal pathways, and these pathways are dictated by the fundamental limitations of heat transfer and thermodynamics. Since the advent of the first heat engines, some of the basic building blocks of these systems have remained relatively unchanged, and to this day, are still responsible for substantial restrictions on system efficiency and cost. Effective innovation paths for the development of future thermal energy systems depend on new component design concepts, novel materials-focused manufacturing techniques, and incorporated system architectures. This talk will describe some of the most interesting recent advances in thermal system components, and discuss the roles of academia, government agencies, and industry in the complex path from discovery to final product implementation.
April 21 | 1 - 2 p.m. | Rogers 226
Spring 2017 HWeekend - Impact Oregon!
HWeekend returns April 23-23! This free hardware development competition, sponsored by the College of Engineering, College of Business, and InnovationX, brings students of all levels and majors together with industry and faculty mentors to create something new. Students work together in teams to create a marketable project they can demonstrate and pitch to judges at the end of the weekend. The theme for this event is Impact Oregon! Come together with a group of friends to make something that is uniquely Oregon or could help Oregon citizens. More info: webpage, video. Application deadline: April 5. Learn how to participate .

President's Commission on the Status of Women seeks nominations for the 2017 University Mentoring and Professional Development Award. This award, presented each September at University Day, recognizes any classified, professional faculty, or faculty member who excels in mentoring, supporting, and encouraging OSU employees, especially women and those from under-represented groups or non-traditional careers. The deadline for nominations is May 1.
The Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFES) Student Chapter at OSU welcomes new members for the academic year 2016-2017. The aim of the organization is to provide a place for students who are interested in human factors and ergonomics to learn the field, share ideas and knowledge with peer students with similar interests, facilitate the dissemination of research of our faculty and students in the field of HFE, and help students to reinforce and develop professional skills. Several amazing events were planned for the new members this year! Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of one of the most recognized student organizations in Engineering for FREE. To get more information about the chapter please write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Student from all academic disciplines are welcome! Looking forward to hear from you!
