Al Roker from the Today Show delivered a 34-hour long weather forecast for the Rokerthon 2 event. He visited all 50 states and stopped in Norman, OK to break two Guinness World Records, the largest human image of a cloud and a lightning bolt. Leading up to the event, he visited the Sooner Racing Team!

The School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Graduate Student Community (GSC) hosted an International Food Festival at the end of October. The event was open to graduate students, faculty, family and friends. The attendees were encouraged to prepare a dish that represents food served traditionally in their country to share. The International Food Festival allowed for members of GSC and attendees to learn more about one another while experiencing aspects of different cultures.

 

From September 8-14, 2015, the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering hosted its first Photo Challenge where students were encouraged to complete various challenges in return for a complimentary AME t-shirt. Students had to complete three out of four photo challenges and post the photos to the AME social media sites using the hashtag #AMEChallenge by the end of the day on Monday, September 14th in order to receive the complimentary t-shirt.

The challenges were as follows:

1. Take a photo of yourself with an AME faculty member.

3. Take a photo of yourself in front of the trophy case outside of the AME Office.

4. Take a photo of yourself in the mezzanine (2nd floor) of the Rawl Engineering Practice Facility.

Over 60 students participated in the AME Photo Challenge receiving the t-shirt. Click here to view all the photos from the AME students. It was a nice little study break for the students and a fun time for all!

As the end of the school year came to a close, the AME Graduate Student Community ended it with a bang. They hosted several events at the end of the semester to boost morale during an overwhelmingly busy time of year with finals, project deadlines, approaching internships and graduation.

They held an afternoon of relaxation and yoga techniques led by Amber Kapoor followed by lunch and thanking those graduate students who hosted a seminar during the spring 2015 semester.

Graduate students who hosted a seminar include Mohammad Imran, Mahyar Pourghasemi, Amber Kapoor, Lucas Balmer, Mortaza Saeidi, Maya Pishvar, Mani Razi (not pictured) and Anna Masters (not pictured).

GSC also held a picnic at Reaves Park to enjoy food, treats, time together and getting to know one another’s family and friends.

AME’s GSC had a very active year with many new and successful events. We look forward to seeing what next year will bring the group!

On Friday, August 15, 2014 the College of Engineering hosted the annual Meet & Greet for the incoming engineering students. The new AME students then attended a session just for them with AME faculty and staff in attendance. There were roughly 70 students in attendance ready and eager to begin their journey at AME. During the session there was great discussion about mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering as well as questions about the student teams, internships, and studying abroad. It is safe to say these new students are looking forward to starting this new adventure and all of us at AME are also looking forward to meeting and working with the students over the next several years.

AME Class of 2018, Welcome to OU and AME! Good luck on your first day!

AME graduate student Arun Balakrishnan created this internet meme.  We think it describes many of our students and alums!  What do you think?
