Mechanical Engineering is excited to announce the first speaker in our Brown Bag Lunch Series, mechanical engineering assistant professor Amanda Smith, Thursday, October 1, 2015, 12:30-1:30 pm, 0560 MEK (Milner Executive Board Room-Lower Level)

Bring your lunch or pick something up at the Quartzdyne Cafe.

Come learn about how energy use in the Salt Lake Valley affects the environment, and how the Site-Specific Energy Systems group is analyzing sustainable solutions, along with other ME researchers and interdisciplinary researchers. We are modifying building energy models to give better environmental information, simplifying computer models for distributed energy resources, and investigating conventional (solar PV) and unconventional (salinity gradient energy recovery) renewable energy sources.

Great reasons to attend:

  • You are thinking about graduate school and want to narrow your research interests
  • You would like to find out more about research happening in the M.E. Dept
  • You would like to talk to faculty in a more informal setting than the classroom
  • You would like to feel a sense of community within the M.E. Dept
  • You are a faculty member who would like to mingle with students and talk about your own research
  • You are a graduate student who would like to talk to undergraduate students about research and what graduate school is like
  • Networking!

All are invited–Undergraduate students; Graduate students; Staff; Faculty!

Time available to mingle, eat, chat, ask questions.
