At the inaugural competition, 20 engineering student organizations pitched to six sharks for investments totaling $30,500.
The project presents a collaborative research and education effort in graph signal processing.
One will fund investigation into microscale friction and the other to better understand the mechanics of dynamic hydrogel interfaces. The awards total approximately $525,000.
The $270,000 grant is courtesy of NASA’s Flight Opportunities program which supports NASA’s future exploration and science missions.
Combined, the awards total approximately $290,000.
The festivities will begin with at 5:30 p.m. reception, followed by a 7:00 p.m. ceremony that will honor several individuals who have made the UK Paducah program possible.
The $223,000 award will support Agioutantis’ investigation into pillar design and stability with integrated pillar load and opening convergence in mines.
Mining engineering graduate students Ravi Ray (Ph.D.) and Brooklynn Yonts (MS) were recently awarded $1,500 scholarships for the Fall 2018 semester.
The journals include IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, IEEE Transactions on Sensor Networks and IEEE Transactions on Network Science and Engineering.
A team of UK students is using its knowledge of computer science to help some of the most vulnerable members of the largest city in the United States.
