• Ramin Rahimi, doctoral student in electrical engineering, won second place. His paper is titled “An Interleaved High Step-Up DC-DC Converter with Built-in Transformer for Renewable Energy Applications.”
• Tao Liu, doctoral student in mechanical engineering, won third place. His paper is titled “In-Situ Infrared Thermographic Inspection for Local Powder Layer Thickness Measurement in Laser Powder Bed Fusion.”
The winners’ advisors are Dr. Donald Wunsch II, the Mary K. Finley Missouri Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering; Dr. Mehdi Ferdowsi, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Dr. Pourya Shamsi (co-advisor), associate professor of electrical and computer engineering; and Dr. Ming Leu, the Keith and Pat Bailey Distinguished Professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
Each student received an award certificate at a luncheon held May 13. The certificates were signed by Dr. Frank Liou, interim ISC director and the Michael and Joyce Bytnar Professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; Dr. Sajal Das, the Daniel St. Clair Endowed Chair Professor of computer science and symposium chair; and Dr. Ming Leu, the Keith and Pat Bailey Distinguished Professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and symposium co-chair at an awards ceremony luncheon held on May 13. In addition, awardees received $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place, and $350 for third place.
A T-shirt design contest was held prior to the symposium. The winner, Behzad Farzanegan, doctoral student in electrical engineering, received a $200 monetary award. He is advised by Dr. Jagannathan Sarangapani, the Rutledge-Emerson Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering.
