Rylie is a senior biomedical engineering major who traveled to Malawi this summer and oversaw a project on sustainable water management through Engineers Without Borders. Rylie is also passionate about making advances in the medicine field and has spent two years researching a condition known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
A junior studying electrical engineering and a member of UD’s golf team. Her advice to incoming students? “Dive into as many interests as you have.”
Isaac, a junior in mechanical engineering, worked with Professor Tyler Van Buren to develop an underwater robotics platform. He has also conducted research at the Delaware Space Observation Center, where he worked on a Cube-Sat ground station that facilitates communication with satellites. These research experiences will help Isaac achieve his dream of becoming a NASA engineer
Slade is a class of 2025 construction engineering and management major who has spent his past two summers working with The Whiting-Turner Company. Along with this excellent internship experience, Slade is the President of the UD chapter of Construction Engineers of America and is creating a manuscript for a game he developed that helps students learn chemistry.
Michael, a class of 2026 computer science major, uses his coding skills to create unique online projects, including a mini pokedex. He plans to continue creating digital content and to study abroad during his junior year.
Herissa is a computer science junior who aspires to become a software engineer. She is currently working with the University of Delaware’s Disaster Research Center online database so that the database can be fully updated and user friendly.
A sophomore studying chemical engineering who’s active in AIChE, intramural basketball and the Indian Student Association. His advice? “Focus on the things you can control.”
Working on finishing his 4+1 degree in Mechanical Engineering/Robotics in 2024. In addition to research on bipedal robots, he also works in “The Pit” in MechE’s Design Studio.
Junior computer science student in the bioinformatics concentration who’s also on the club figure skating team and a member of Alpha Omega Epsilon. Her advice? “Explore all your options!”
Abby is a class of 2025 honors chemical engineering major and member of the UD women’s rowing team. This summer, she worked in Aditya Kunjapur’s lab where she used enzyme cascades to produce unique amino acids.
Lily is a senior in materials science who spent her summer researching how specific inorganic chemistries and molecular structures can generate fine touch sensations in the Dhong lab. Her research project is geared towards making advancements in tactile aids for people with low vision and blind people.
