Stanford Fellowship for Dr. Apte, Two Graduate Students

Dr. Sourabh Apte, associate professor of mechanical engineering, was awarded a fellowship from Stanford University’s Center for Turbulence Research. As part of Stanford's CTR Summer Program, Dr. Apte will spend month at Stanford for an intense, biennial program for researchers from all around the world focusing on turbulence research and its applications in various different fields including multiphase and particle-laden two phase flows; large eddy simulations and boundary-layer transition, flow-structure interactions and numerical algorithms for turbulent flow simulations. Dr. Apte -- along with two of his graduate students, Xiaoliang "Bryan" He and Pedram Pakseresht -- will be working with a group of scientists on particle-laden two-phase flows.

 

School of MIME Diversity Initiative Celebrated

The Women in Engineering Proactive Net (WEPAN) is saluting the achievements and initiative of the School of MIME for their involvement in the TECAID project. TECAID (Transforming Engineering Culture to Advance Inclusion and Diversity) is an NSF-funded project to increase diversity in mechanical engineering programs. The School of MIME, along with five other universities, has designated programmatic activities (such as the development of Humanitarian Engineering) as efforts that may boost a more diversified student body in engineering. MIME will receive the WEPAN President’s Award at the June 14-16 WEPAN Change Leader Forum in Colorado.
