June WVU Alumni story


The start of the 2016-2017 academic year is less than 30 days away and I'm proud to share a few of the successes we experienced this past year in the Statler College.

Topping the list of accolades is the international notoriety achieved by the research team at the Center for Alternative Fuels, Engines and Emissions, which helped land its director, Dan Carder, on the 2016 Time 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. CAFEE did the initial research that led to the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board conducting their own study that found Volkswagen had intentionally violated the Clean Air Act by installing a “defeat device” software code that altered the performance of the emissions system on their vehicles.

The College has grown to almost 4,600 students and we graduated nearly 900 students in May. In that class were two National Science Foundation graduate fellowship winners, Andrew Maloney and Nicholas Ohi. Maloney, our first-ever Goldwater Scholar, is headed to MIT, where he will continue his studies in chemical engineering. Ohi, a mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate, remains at WVU, where he will continue his research in autonomous robotics.

Our latest Goldwater Scholar is also our first-ever in our newest undergraduate major, biomedical engineering. Ryan Mezan, a junior from Weirton, is conducting research on new ways to diagnose the toxicity of nanomaterials. He plans to pursue a combined M.D./Ph.D. after he graduates.

Leading our students are faculty that conduct groundbreaking research in areas ranging from energy to materials to rare earth elements.

None of this would be possible without your generous support. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Statler College, thank you for the trust you place in us to educate the next generation of engineering leaders.
