We are excited to announce that Dr. Maureen Foley will present Introduction to Requirements Definition and Materials Selection in Developing New Components for U.S. Navy Applications on March 19. Not only is she an expert in her field, but she is particularly passionate about engaging engineering students and answering their questions. You have investigated many materials through PEP and this hour-long presentation and discussion will help broaden your horizons in this critical, and growing, field. Register today!
MACC traditionally has a sizeable international audience so we are planning a hybrid conference. As you may have seen in previous conferences, we present technical presentations 48 hours before the conference and then have a Q&A session. We would love to have a video describing your design for this conference. This video could simply be a recording of your capstone presentation. Or, if you want to make a video after the semester that captures the engineering successes, you could also choose to make a special presentation that presents your work to a professional audience. As always, you can ask us for help if you have questions, thoughts or concerns about this opportunity.
The ASNE scholarships may not make sense for graduating seniors, but if you are considering graduate school or have undergraduate teammates, please share these $4,000 scholarship opportunities. We hope you apply. The scholarship is open to all students are engaged in engineering disciplines related to naval engineering. PEP participants and future PEP participants are at a particular advantage since you are already showing your involvement with naval engineering.
Before we get to MACC, ASNE is hosting the Intelligent Ships Symposium. Teams that investigated unmanned systems are particularly encouraged to investigate the agenda and drop in for a session that piques your interest. As always, registration is completely free for undergraduate students.
We have been touching base with your teams and know that this is a busy time in your schedule. I hope you find enjoyment in how much you, individually, and your team, collectively, are able to produce in this short period of time. Your first semester plans have probably shifted in some ways, but that planning is providing you with the structure and foundation to see this through to the end. We are so excited to you see you dockside on July 21, 2021 in Baltimore!
