Students and Advisor Show Well: 2013 ATMAE Conference
The student chapter of the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) traveled to New Orleans, LA to attend the 2013 annual conference. This year's theme was "Developing the Future Workforce," was highlighted by keynote speaker Dr. Tom Kurfess, a former White House fellow in the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
While at the conference, the students participated in the Student Robotics Competition - Robo-Hoops. The competition capped off a year-long effort by the students to build a robotic device that sorted ping pong balls by color and shoot them into a corresponding hoop of the same color. In addition to completing the challenge, the students also had to document their research and prepare a technical report and a poster to illustrate their efforts. The results are as follows:
1st Place: Technical Report
1st Place: Technical Poster
1st Place: Overall
In addition to the extraordinary student performances, chapter advisor Dr. John Wright was honored with the Charles W. Keith Award. This award is ATMAE's highest honor, given only when an individual is judged to have displayed exemplary accomplishments towards significant development of ATMAE. This award was last presented over a decade ago, and Dr. Wright is the eighth recipient to receive the honor.
Featured Alumnus: Dr David Hoffa
Dr. David Hoffa (MU Class of 2001, Industrial Technology Electronics) was recently promoted to Cameron International’s (CAM) Surface Systems Lead Black Belt – North & South America. David is based out of Houston, Texas, and in his new role at Cameron he will be managing nine Lean Six Sigma Black Belts, deployed at plants throughout the Americas.
