This year’s departmental convocation ceremonies switched to a virtual format due to COVID-19 restrictions, hosting celebrations that were as unique as the class they honored.
Members of the class of 2020 conducted research on aircraft design, water quality and the science of soundwaves. They built canoes out of concrete. They worked to make mines safer, biomedical devices more efficient, and our world more sustainable. They mentored classmates and competed in national competitions. At the ceremonies, the college honored an outstanding graduating senior from each of its 15 majors.
This year's outstanding senior in systems engineering is Kelsey Ingerson, who works as a research assistant in SIE's transportation lab. Kelsey is involved on campus with Tau Beta Pi and Engineering Ambassadors. She previously worked as a safety engineering intern for Raytheon Missile Systems.
