EFIT: Deadline to apply is THIS FRIDAY, March 30th!!

The College of Engineering is looking for up to 50  Engineering Pack Leaders for the summer program described below:

Short for “Engineering-Freshman Intensive Transition,” E-FIT is a week- long academic program (August 18-23) designed to increase success for incoming college students. The program offers a glimpse into the University’s rigorous academic expectations and college life prior to the start of the semester.

Pack Leaders will be responsible for:

  • Mentoring the incoming students -help with homework, advise students on being good students, answer questions about student life and what the college has to offer
  • Helping students navigate campus -take students to/and attend some study and discipline specific sessions with students, have meals with students
  • Running the lab sessions -helping with projects and ensuring safety
  • Grading exams and homework assignments
  • Interacting with the students and being a good role model

You will be compensated $500 for the 5.5 day period plus 1 day of training with meals included. If you are living in the residence halls, you will be allowed to move into your room early.

You must be enrolled for the Fall 2018 semester to be considered for this position.

Please go to the following site for more information and to apply to be a leader:

American Nuclear Society Presents

Dr. David Rodriguez: Electrolytic Reduction of Metal Oxides for Nuclear Applications

Fri. 3/30 at 12 PM in AB 106

Molten salt technology for recycling used nuclear fuel, molten salt reactors, and defense

Dr. Rodriguez earned his M.S. and PhD. In Materials Science and Engineering at UNR. Since 2017, he has been a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the Inorganic, Isotope and Actinide Chemistry (C-IIAC) group at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). He is currently working on projects that focus on the electrolytic reduction of plutonium surrogates and material degradation in molten salts for power producing facilities. Dr. Rodriguez will discuss research being conducted at LANL on improved methods to electrolytically convert oxides to metals, focusing on cerium as a surrogate for plutonium. The electrolytic reduction of cerium oxide has resulted in mixed degrees of success due to side reactions within the molten salt. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) was performed to identify the products of these side reactions and resulted in greater understanding of the system; based on CV results, pre-electrolysis was added, resulting in an improved production of Ce0. When Ce0 is successfully produced by EOR, a large amount of passed charge is required due to various inefficiencies of the process, requiring further optimization of EOR parameters. Strategies to address these issues and target improved yield and efficiency will conclude this talk.

Optimizing and Accelerating MATLAB Seminar ~ 4/4 in the Earthquake Engineering Laboratory Auditorium Room 200 at 10 am

Uncategorized No Comments »

Please join MathWorks for complimentary MATLAB seminars on Wednesday, April 4th.   Faculty, researchers, and students are all welcome to attend.

Optimizing and Accelerating MATLAB

Location:  University of Nevada, Reno – Earthquake Engineering Laboratory Auditorium Room 200

DateApril 4, 2018

Time:  10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Registration and welcome begins at 9:45 a.m.)

To learn more or to register, please visit >>Register

Overview: 

In this session, we will discuss and demonstrate simple ways to improve and optimize your code that can boost execution speed by orders of magnitude. We will also address common pitfalls in writing MATLAB code, explore the use of the MATLAB Profiler to find bottlenecks, introduce our parallel computing tools to solve computationally and data-intensive problems on multicore computers and clusters, and finally talk about tools to automatically translate your MATLAB code into C.

Learning objectives: 

  • Optimizing MATLAB code to boost execution speed
  • Automatically generating portable C code from MATLAB
  • Employing multi-core processors and GPUs to speed up your computations
  • Scaling up to computer clusters, grid environments or clouds

If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Tom McHugh at tom.mchugh@MathWorks.com  or 508-647-7657

Aeronautics-Related Student Team-Oriented Internship at Glenn-Summer 2018 Application Deadline – Mar. 16 – for undergrads, MSc and first year PhDs

Uncategorized No Comments »

 

NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) will offer two paid team-oriented and aeronautics-related, on-site Internship opportunities to qualified STEM students of US citizenship, during 2018 summer. Among other key attributes, diversity in the applicant pool is desirable. We would much appreciate your help in sharing this time-sensitive announcement among your university and college affiliate members to reach a large pool of students, given the looming March 16/’18 application deadline. Both projects are currently posted in NASA’s “One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI)” application system è  https://intern.nasa.gov

We plan to competitively select a total of students to be split into 2 equal teams of 4 students per team to work on challenging and rewarding projects, on-site at GRC for 10 consecutive weeks, starting on Monday, June 4. The umbrella for the two projects noted below is GRC’s new Aeronautics Research and Engineering Student Team Project (ARETEP).

 

One team of 4 students will focus on the Opportunity-

  • “Community Noise Impact of Urban Air Mobility Operations”

** Seeks – Undergrad Snrs/Rising Snrs;  Master’s;  1st Yr. Ph.D. Students

Majors – Aerospace/Computer/Electrical/Mech./Integrated Engg.; Applied Maths; Physics

 

Another 4-member student team will execute –

  • “Weather Tolerant Operations for Urban Air Mobility”

** Seeks – Undergrad Snrs/Rising Snrs;  Master’s;  1st Yr. Ph.D. Students

Majors – Aerospace/Computer/Electrical/Mech./Integrated Engg.; Applied Maths; Physics

The two projects are currently posted in NASA’s One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) application system. We encourage all those interested in possibly working at GRC this coming summer to submit your application before 11:59PM on Friday, March 16 which is the new application deadline for summer’18 Internship enrolment. If you have interned at a NASA Center within the past one-to-two years or so, or presently interning at a NASA Center, you may be able to use your profile and other pieces of pertinent information already in OSSI to expedite your application to one or both of the above projects. Do your best to ensure timely submissions of your letters of reference and transcripts by the March 16 deadline.
