Jennifer Skerker’s fascination with Environmental Engineering began with the course “Climate Change Engineering” and culminated in an independent research project on the dispersal patterns of pollutants at either end of underground highway tunnels. Anu Gamage learned the ins and outs of building a functional pulse oximeter (in her words, “the little gadget that is clipped on to your fingers when you go to the doctor”) and used those problem-solving skills to make drones and robots for fun! Chemical Engineer and Professor, Ayse Asatekin, engineers for sustainability by creating a new, more efficient class of membranes for water treatment and chemical separation.
Every fall, we host our Women in Engineering (WIE) open house to meet the female engineers who take the helm in and out of our classrooms.
