Dr. Henry Sodano Awarded the American Society for Composites 2012 Young Composites Researcher Award.
The Young Composites Researcher Award is given to a member of the
composites community who early in their career has made a significant
impact on the science and technology of composite materials through a
sustained research effort.
Congratulations to Xiaoyu Cheng on receiving the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Soceity (AP-S) Doctoral Research Award! The IEEE AP-S awards up to ten PhD fellowships each year to encourage students to pursue a career in the area of Electromagnetics. The awards are intended to support students involved in project work directed by a faculty member at their institution who is a member of the IEEE AP-S. The title of his research is: "A Foldable Biomedical Telemetry Platform Based on Flexible Substrates." The award selection is based on creativity and quality of the proposed project, discussion of the technical interests and skills of the student as well as the recommendation letter.
Congratulations to Zak Kaufman for being selected as a Goldwater Scholar! The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship is awarded to approximately 300 college sophomores and juniors across the nation. Universities are only allowed to nominate four undergraduate students to compete for the final scholarship. This makes it the most prestigious award for undergraduate students in the fields of science and engineering. The scholarship is awarded based on the nominee's field of study, career objectives, and the potential for the student to make a significant contribution to his or her field.
