Md. Taifur Rahman, a native of Dhaka, Bangladesh, took home first place honors last spring from the AISTech 2012 – Association for Iron and Steel Technology (AIST) Conference in Atlanta, Ga. The Purdue Calumet graduate student placed highest in the Graduate Student Poster Contest for his research project titled, “Development and Application for Burden Distribution Model and Shaft Simulation.”
Aleksandr Shmagranoff, Munster — It is unlikely there are many, if any, other mechanical engineering majors who can claim victory in PUC’s annual Intramural Fishing Contest (21-inch walleye in 2009), but his PUC experiences have been varied. He is an ArcelorMittal Scholarship recipient and an Association for Iron and Steel Technology presenter. He also is an award-winning, Undergraduate Student Research Days participant, having learned experientially at PUC’s Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation.
Purdue University Calumet graduate student, Md Taifur Rahman, won 1st Place at the 2012 AISTech Graduate Student Poster Contest for his project titled “Development and Application of Burden Distribution Model and Shaft Simulation Model for Blast Furnace”.
Some 177 Purdue University Calumet students presented 102 scholarly research projects in the university’s annual Student Research Days on March 29, 2012 and March 30, 2012. Find out more here.
Build a tower out of spaghetti and gumdrops? Then travel inside a 1000-degree furnace unscathed? These are just some of the highlights of the Engineering Open House on Saturday, November 12, 2011, hosted by the Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) and the Departments of Engineering. One hundred and twenty high school seniors and family members attended this open house, which immediately followed the View Purdue Calumet event. It was a day full of information, hands-on activities, and opportunities to meet university officials, faculty members, and current students.
Purdue Calumet’s Undergraduate Research Grant Program provides funding for student researchers across university academic units to conduct research with faculty mentors. The program is designed to help students gain insights about their anticipated career, as well as how to develop a project proposal and presentation.
Some 194 Purdue University Calumet students will present their research projects during Student Research Days Thursday (3/31) and Friday (4/1) in the Student Union & Library.
Twenty-six engineering students and four faculty and research staff members from Purdue University Calumet (PUC) attended the largest annual international steel conference, AISTech 2010 – The Iron & Steel Technology Conference and Exposition, held in Pittsburgh from May 3 to May 6. The event drew more than 5,600 participants.
