Six MIE students are participating in this year's Global Educational Exchange (Globex) at Peking University (PKU) in China. The program, running from July 7 - 26, encourages student exchanges and research collaboration between PKU and 21 engineering schools from around the world.
The workshop, themed Materials for Sustainability, explored more than 20 graduate-level research areas tied to the processing of eco-friendly materials, as well as the recycling and recovery of materials from waste. Professor Tobin Filleter was among the faculty leads on the visit to U Tokyo, also attended by Professor Edmond Young and graduate students Roshanak Banan, Janice Song, Saeid Salavati, and Maryam Talimi.
PhD candidate Ali Rizvi named top 30 under 30 by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. Rizvi has designed a cost-effective commercial sponge, similar to the one you’d find in your kitchen sink, which can be used in disastrous oil-spill cleanups.
Professor Emeritus Andrew Jardine’s Centre for Maintenance Optimization and Reliability Engineering (C-MORE) hosted an all-day meeting with representatives of the defence departments of Canada, United Kingdom, USA and Australia.
The Human Factors and Applied Statistics Lab, directed by Professor Birsen Donmez, participated in a distracted driving awareness event hosted by Young Drivers driving school.
