Portrait of Thrasher and Campriani


Golden Mountaineers

Two athletes with ties to the Statler College came home with Gold medals from the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio. Ginny Thrasher, a sophomore majoring in biomedical engineering, won the first medal awarded in the games, when she finished first in the women’s 10m air rifle competition for the United States. Nicco Campriani, a 2011 industrial engineering graduate, won Gold in both the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions and the men’s 10m air rifle competitions for his native Italy. Campriani is now the first rifle athlete to win three Olympic Gold medals and the first to win two Gold medals at one Olympic Games.

Sample Return team practicing


WVU team preps for upcoming Sample Return Robot Challenge

At the 2015 Sample Return Robot Challenge, the team of engineering students from West Virginia University and their robot, Cataglyphis, came incredibly close to snagging the $1.5 million prize offered as part of NASA's Centennial Challenge. While the team did make history last year by being the first to successfully retrieve the coveted “red rock” sample, earning them $100,000, the Mountaineers have their sights on one thing for 2016: finishing the job.

When it rains, it pours and sometimes the overflow from such storms contain pollutants that have a significant impact on water quality. A researcher from West Virginia University is working to create a wireless sensor network to detect when such systems reach capacity and are in danger of breaching their containment walls.
