Students Present Research at Annual Engineering Education Meeting

Two control and instrumentation students from the Department of Engineering Technology recently presented their applied research at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) annual meeting in Atlanta, GA.

This conference is the main event for ASEE's and people from across the globe gather to present, discuss and debate the latest developments in engineering and engineering education. Papers and presentations are peer-reviewed.

Sanjo Peter and Matt Stevenson presented their team's research work, "Design and Control of a Multivariable Water Tank," which was based on their senior capstone project. Truong Doan was the third team member. "It was a great experience to come to ASEE, a national conference, and present our research work. It speaks of the quality of our program," said Peter and Stevenson.

"It is not unusual for our students to complete high quality research work in a semester's time frame and present it at local and national peer reviewed conferences. This has been Sanjo's second paper/presentation this year alone" said Vassilios Tzouanas, assistant engineering professor, who supervised their work.

Tzouanas believes that the quality of his students' research work is evidenced by the reviewers' comments, including:

  • "Well written paper. The audience in the control systems area teaching senior design will find this paper as a model for other senior design projects. Good explanation and engineering overview."
  • "The project was explained well and demonstrated a wealth of knowledge."
