    #CommitTo connecting world-class engineering to world-class experiences. Seven students in the UGA College of Engineering are studying abroad this summer in Freiburg, Germany: Ethan Gable, Grace Robinson, Lyle Tostenson, Grace Swords, Noah Kopp, Jose Reyes, and Alex Mesa. Six of the students are enrolled in UGA's Engineering + German dual degree program. Dr. Tom Lawrence, professor of practice, recently caught up with the group and traveled with them to Karlsruhe, home of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, one of our partners institutions in the Engineering + German program.

    UGA College of Engineering students Richie Guamán, Nicole Morris, and Sarah Franklin are interning at the Liang Laboratory at Emory University’s School of Medicine this summer. The three biological engineering majors are researching proteins of the respiratory syncytial virus.

    If you’re participating in an internship, co-op, or study abroad experience this summer, we’d love to know! Send a photo or two along with a brief description to mwooten@uga.edu.

    A University of Georgia College of Engineering alumna has received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, a competitive national award that recognizes emerging scientists and engineers.

    Emma Brannon graduated from the UGA College of Engineering in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in biochemical engineering. She is now in the first-year of her doctoral studies in chemical engineering at the University of Michigan.

    At Michigan, Brannon is working on a project to study neutrophil-particle interactions for the alleviation of sepsis, a serious life threatening medical condition. She is working to design polymeric microparticles that readily interact with immune cells, preventing immune system paralysis.

    She plans to pursue a career in teaching and research.

    As an undergraduate in the UGA College of Engineering, Brannon conducted research under the guidance of Assistant Professor Hitesh Handa in the Handa Biomaterials Research Lab.

    The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship includes three years of financial support that includes an annual stipend of $34,000 plus a $12,000 cost of education allowance and networking and professional development opportunities.

    WenZhan Song, the Georgia Power Mickey A. Brown Professor in Engineering at the University of Georgia College of Engineering, delivered the keynote address at last week's SmartSys 2019. Hosted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Workshop on Smart Service Systems attracted practitioners and researchers from both academia and industry to explore the fundamental knowledge and principles of smart service systems. In his keynote, Dr. Song presented several smart sensing systems for health and security monitoring via auditing vibration and electrical signals.

    UGA College of Engineering professor Jenna Jambeck is one of "27 Women Leading the Charge to Protect Our Environment," according to Elle. The magazine notes Jambeck's development of Marine Debris Tracker, an app that lets users report seaside litter anywhere in the world, as well as her groundbreaking research that quantified the amount of plastic waste streaming into our oceans each year.

    The University of Georgia will launch its first comprehensive mentorship initiative, the UGA Mentor Program, on June 12. Alumni, including faculty and staff, who are interested in participating can create a profile at mentor.uga.edu. The site will open for student sign-ups in August.

    “University of Georgia alumni are eager to support current students as they explore possible career paths and life goals,” said President Jere W. Morehead, “and our students are excited to connect with members of the Bulldog family who can provide inspiration and guidance. I am grateful that our alumni are willing to give back to UGA in this important way, and I look forward to the many lasting benefits that will come from the program.”

    We connect a close-knit engineering program to global perspectives.

    Ian Van Giesen, a mechanical engineering student, studied abroad in Karlsruhe, Germany this past spring as part of UGA's Engineering-German dual degree program.

    “I appreciate how much freedom I have to explore my interests in the student organizations and clubs. My most memorable experience was probably the “weekend in the hut” (Hüttenwochende) I spent with the local Engineers without Border chapter. It was crazy to work on engineering plans in a castle older than my country!”
