  • Professor Receives Grant to Help Most Vulnerable People
    to allow this patients to communicate Dr Nam s team will improve methods to identify various brain responses that could improve accuracy and reduce BCI illiteracy They look to also develop a new multi choice hybrid BCI system that could lead to faster communication and broader control options for behaviorally non responsive patients This project should have a dramatic impact on some of the most vulnerable people in our country

  • ISE Team Reaches the Summit
    the capacity crowd Ron Aman discussed advances ISE has made using acetone vapor to polish the surfaces of 3D printed plastic parts When plastic parts come out of the 3D printer their surface is too rough to meet many industry standards So ISE researchers have been using an acetone vapor to melt and thus smooth the surface of the part An added benefit to this process is that it also strengthens the part Tim Horn gave an overview of Professor Harrysson and Dr Denis Marcelli Little s work with 3D printed prosthetics For years they have been creating and implanting custom designed prosthetic limbs into both cats and dogs The goal of their work will be to apply this technology to humans PhD student Caroline Webster talked about creating 3D printed skulls for medical schools Currently medical students use cadavers to practice drilling holes into the skull The 3D printed skulls would reduce the demand for donated human bodies Another advancement with this technology would be the ability to create patient specific models This would allow the surgeon to practice on an exact model of the patient s skull before performing the surgery 3D printing is transformed entire industries like

    ISE Loses a Good Friend page 20 and member of ISE s Alpha Pi Mu honor society and Carter Keough an undergraduate research assistant in ISE s Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics After defining the scope of the semester long project with their professor Dr Anita Vila Parrish and Nomacorc the team met with Rob Schabinger BSIE 2004 an industrial engineer at the Nomacorc plant in Zebulon NC Rob was the company s point of contact for the ISE team and was responsible for communicating with the students as well as answering questions and providing information direction and feedback on project tasks and outputs While at the plant Schabinger and the team gathered the production data that would be needed by the team to create a model that would simulate Nomacorc s production systems The team also took a tour of the extrusion area and monitored the operations of the workers as they performed their daily tasks Armed with an abundance of raw data the team returned to campus to begin construction of their simulation model The team quickly realized that the volume of data for simulating thousands of orders using numerous production lines was simply too great for the software and the computers in the senior design lab to process They knew they would have to go back to the beginning and logically consolidate and condense their model To accomplish this task the team enlisted the talents of one of the world s foremost experts in simulation modeling ISE professor James Wilson Under Wilson s tutelage the team was able to recreate their model successfully analyze the results and determine the optimal solution for redesign of Nomacorc s production system Now that data had been analyzed and a solution was discovered the team headed into the final phase of the project the presentations The team was required to present their findings to their classmates and professors judges at the Senior Design Day event and finally the engineers and management of Nomacorc First up their ISE 498 classmates and faculty For this presentation the team knew they needed to focus their presentation on the process they used to complete their project After answering questions from professors and industry partners the team received valuable feedback about their presentation and interpersonal skills The team used this information to refine their presentation approach before the Senior Design Day event held at Talley Student Union on NC State s main campus See Senior Design Day 2014 page 28 Senior Design Day allowed ISE students to join students from Electrical and Computer Engineering Textile Engineering and the Engineering Entrepreneurs Program to present their senior design projects to a panel of judges In this format the team had to develop and deliver a two minute or less elevator speech to each of the judges including the Dean of the College of Engineering as they circulated throughout the ballroom The team built on the success of their classroom presentation to perform strongly and leave their mark

    logical sense I would encourage all ISE students to go the co op route if they can it really enriches the learning experience Jones said when describing his ISE education As a co op student Roger worked his way through every manufacturing department at Century before working in the company s engineering department In spite of a job offer from Century after graduating in December of 1978 Roger went to work for Hitchcock Chair in Connecticut But after six months he rmade his way back to Century where he started in a junior engineering position He quickly moved up the engineering ranks and into management where he focused on advancing Century s technological capability upgrading equipment and information systems that far exceeded the norms in furniture manufacturing In 2000 Roger was part of the team that developed what would become Century s first fully imported collection of furniture marketed as Destinations by Century Roger s responsibilities within Century evolved to be more focused on planning and sourcing especially as Century s business model changed to include an ever increasing imported product component With his engineering manufacturing and product development skills he was a natural to take the lead on behalf of Century in traveling the world to find the best home furnishings products to meet their customer s needs When asked what advice he could give to the industrial engineering students as they start down the path of becoming an engineer he offered two suggestions First be willing to think globally in all that you do Yes we re North Carolinians and Americans but we re also citizens of the world We have a lot to offer the world but the world also has a lot to offer us Learn to appreciate that His second suggestion was be prepared to
