Poster session and celebration dinner exhibits and honors research activities of Kettering graduate students

Some are working on finding better ways to power automobiles. Some research techniques to better diagnose and treat injuries to the shoulder and knee. Others hope to enhance the manufacturing process through the use of integrated technology.

These are just a few of the many research projects undertaken by current graduate students at Kettering. On Wednesday, Sept. 1, Kettering University's Office of Sponsored Research presented the Second Annual Graduate Student Poster Session from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the International Room of the Campus Center. The event served to promote and honor the important research efforts of graduate students through the display of their work for the entire Kettering community to review.

Arlene Hunt, director of Sponsored Research, along with her assistant, Jodi Door, once again produced an exceptional event to highlight the tireless efforts of graduate students and their advisers as they conduct research in areas such as crash test safety, biomechanical engineering and manufacturing engineering, to name just a few. During the poster session event, judges reviewed the displays offered by graduate students and awarded prizes of $150 plus plaques to winners at a dinner reception hosted by Dr. John at his beautiful home. "The quality of the posters was excellent," Hunt said.
