ASME’s Engineering Festivals (E-Fests) are regional events for engineering students that include design competitions, career development workshops, access to thought leaders and innovators in various engineering fields, and networking opportunities. They host many competitions, leadership opportunities, and social activities for students to meet engineers from other colleges.
Congratulations ASME OU!
Two of our AME undergraduate students, Janella Clary and Colton Ross, received ASME awards on April 26th. Janella received the Tom J. Love Outstanding ASME Student Member Award from ASME Central Oklahoma Section while Colton received the ASME Central Oklahoma Section Undergraduate Scholarship of $500.
Janella Clary a senior from League City, Texas, is a mechanical engineer major with minors in business, Spanish, and international studies. She’s involved in the Gallogly College of Engineering as well as an active member of SHPE, SWE, ASME, MEP, and AISES. Last year she was the secretary for OU’s ASME chapter and this year she is serving as president. Additionally, Janella is involved in the OU Triathlon team, OU Sailing Club, Global Engagement Fellows, and OU Cousins. Recently, she has completed two internships with Exxon Mobil in Spring, Texas, as an offsites and utilities engineer and she will intern with them again for this summer. Next year she will be graduating in June 2019 and plans to start with Exxon Mobil fulltime after graduation, unless she is selected for the Fulbright award, then she plans on completing an independent research project at OU starting in September 2019. Colton Ross, who is a junior mechanical engineering major, is a new member of the ASME student chapter. Currently, he is an undergraduate researcher working with his mentor and future M.S. thesis advisor, Dr. Chung-Hao Lee, in the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Design Laboratory. Colton has presented at the ASME/AIAA sponsored symposium, hosted by OCU, in April. His future plans include pursuing his accelerated master’s degree as well as furthering his education through a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering. Congratulations go out to both Colton and Janella on their ASME awards and future endeavors.
