Engineering graduate students at Oregon State University will share their research projects at OSU's annual Graduate Research Showcase, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center on OSU’s Corvallis campus, 725 SW 26th St.
Showcase visitors will be able to question the students about their work, which gives the students opportunities to further develop their communication skills.
More than 125 students will display their research this year. Topics include: water purification, miniature electric grids, portable desalination units, atmospheric radiation detection, soft robotics and corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
Vishvas Chalishazar was named the top presenter in electrical engineering and computer science at the last two showcases. He was honored for his work protecting Portland General Electric’s grid from earthquake risk.
The students at the showcase will be joined by three exhibitors from industry: NuScale Power, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and SIGMADESIGN.
