On Friday, April 17, more than 200 students from CU Denver and CU Anschutz participated in the 18th annual Research and Creative Activities Symposium. Ten schools and colleges were represented, and two participants from the College of Engineering and Applied Science walked away with awards.
Ashanthi Maxworth, graduate student in electrical engineering, received the Outstanding Graduate Scholarly Activity in Engineering and Applied Science award for her poster presentation, “Whistler Wave Propagation in the Earth’s Ionosphere and Magnetosphere.” Maxworth’s faculty sponsor is Mark Golkowski, assistant professor of electrical engineering.
CU Denver Motorsports, a team of mechanical engineering students, received the Outstanding Undergraduate Scholarly Activity in Engineering and Applied Science award for their senior design project, a formula one race car designed to compete in a collegiate competition this summer. Team members include Alex Fenstermacher, Chris Allen, Michael Baker, Zack Landgren, Byron Pindell, Matt Bunsness, Mark Haden, Austin Voss, Drake Soule, David Richards, Orlando Paredes, Arthur Boo, Tabitha Martinez, and Curtis Sharpsteen; their faculty sponsor is Ron Rorrer, associate professor of mechanical engineering.
Congratulations to all of you!
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
