    the College of Engineering s cooperative education program which gave him over a full year of professional real world experience before his graduation in 2014 During his tenure at CSU Craft co oped with both Wolf Robotics and Delta Air Lines At Wolf Robotics I was programming robotics systems and learned how to problem solve My rotation there was eight months and that was a good amount of time to gain a deeper understanding of how everything worked After his rotation with Wolf Robotics Craft was looking for another co op opportunity to learn new skills and ended up at Delta Air Lines At Delta I was a repair engineer where I would evaluate damage and determine how to repair the problem and decide if the aircraft would be structurally safe with the repair It was a very process oriented job and I fit in well there because I understood how an engineer fit into the repair process Forging His Own Way Ultimately Craft s experiences at CSU came together to help him land a job at Tesla because the company saw repair engineering experience at Delta on his résumé His choices to dual major in mechanical engineering and physics participate in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME and interface with faculty and staff all contributed to his success at CSU and beyond It took me a long time to get the experience I needed but now I feel like I could work anywhere I want and this experience has made me more confident It took Craft six years at CSU to graduate with his two degrees but he had a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to show for his efforts For those looking to pursue a similar career he has advice to share Silicon Valley is a

    management Westhoff chose this project because of its interdisciplinary nature mechanical engineering paired with chemistry and hopes to utilize his expertise in industry after graduation Ali Tasdighi is a civil and environmental engineering Ph D student with a passion for improving water quality worldwide through his research His project aims to determine the viability of water quality trading in different contexts suggesting a framework for quantifying trading ratios for point nonpoint source trades under uncertainty using Bayesian inference During this research Tasdighi is working with his advisor Dr Mazdak Arabi on developing a stochastic approach for modeling the pollutants from nonpoint sources and evaluating the effectiveness of different conservation practices in reducing them The results will be used to create an index of water quality trading viability for point and nonpoint sources throughout the country Interfacing with Industry All four student winners valued the Grad Showcase as an opportunity to interface not only with other students but also with judges and industry representatives Introduced to the Grad Show for the first time last year when his wife a human development student participated Dumitrache especially enjoyed the opportunity to be exposed to and interact with a wide variety of people and research projects Drake encourages other students to submit work in the Grad Show as it s a great way to get exposed to other students work and it s an opportunity you may not otherwise get because of the heads down nature of the last year of the engineering program Similarly Westhoff enjoyed the opportunity to practice being a salesperson instead of a scientist which is a crucial skill needed for success in any industry The Grad Show was not only a valued experience for the student participants but also for the judges who were each responsible for evaluating 5

    Colonel RICK BUCK 87 Rick Buck a program manager in Boeing s Defense Space and Security Business started working for the company after graduating from Colorado State University s mechanical engineering program in 1987 When asked how he got his job at Boeing Buck responded After several months of sending resumes I decided to get on an airplane to Seattle and actually cold called the Boeing switchboard I finally got in touch with someone in human resources who had coincidentally also graduated from CSU I found my way to the Boeing plant without GPS interviewed and got the offer His first position was in Renton Wash as a 737 747 flight deck engineer Twenty eight years later Buck continues to thrive at Boeing He ended up developing cockpits for three different aircraft and rotorcraft and many other military work stations Currently he manages the development of some of Boeing s surveillance aircraft programs with the U S and international military customers Years later his CSU roots are stronger than ever My degree from CSU and the career it allowed me to have is an extraordinary experience I really think we have one of the most exciting programs around It s a proud life engineers live because everything we use in our lives has been engineered in some way Along with the pride of building the world comes the responsibility of keeping those who use our designs safe It s a big responsibility During his college days his favorite ME professor was Dr Charlie Mitchell When Buck took Fluid Dynamics of Compressible Fluids he connected to Dr Mitchell s practical physics examples from his time at NASA When asked what his fondest memories at CSU were he responded We had College Days in the early 80 s and those were always fun times I m a big Rams fan and I loved the opportunity to see so many events with the activity card I came from the small town of Fowler Colo so the campus was bigger than life to me at the time I really grew up in those years and it was fabulous place to do that My two greatest friends are roommates I had at CSU and those memories will be cherished forever To this day Buck remains a huge supporter of the mechanical engineering department He currently serves on the Mechanical Engineering Advisory Boards and has been a key partner in the development of the department through the years GRAHAM W HOWARD 32 Graham W Howard a 1932 mechanical engineering graduate from Gill CO about 10 miles from Greeley Colo attended CSU when it was Colorado A M Today the legacy he left at the University and in the field of engineering continues to make a vital impact At Colorado A M he was a member of the Engineering Society Phi Kappa Tau the National Journalistic Society and he became the captain of the Aggie baseball team where he played third base and shortstop and was the
