5 Skills Hiring Managers Look for in Engineering Grads

You are now an engineer on the job hunt.

You know that you’re a highly skilled engineering graduate, but the job hunt can feel like a particularly arduous task.

Maybe you have a couple strong internships or some engineering competition wins under your belt.  Maybe you were a project team leader or a volunteer with a STEM outreach program.

But even with all your qualifications, it’s difficult to know out what will catch a recruiter’s eye.

So what skills are recruiters and hiring managers looking for? Read More >

Designer 3D Prints His Own Wind-Powered USB Device Charger

wind powered USB charger

Anthony Dorsa is a sophomore mechanical engineering student at Binghamton University, and he's come up with a 3D printed device which is ingenious – and simple – in every way.

His wind powered USB charger was designed to work with just two specific pieces, and while he says it does work to juice up his portable battery charger, he's had slightly less luck getting it to charge his phone, but he calls it a work in progress.

Mechanical Engineering Chancellor Award recipient, Jin Woo Lee, discusses undergraduate research

Jin Woo Lee

"Participating in undergraduate research was a truly rewarding experience that helped me develop critical thinking skills and gain a clear understanding of what I should do for the future. Through the Summer Scholars and Artists program, I was able to pursue a research project of my interest and apply the theories I learned in classrooms to a practical application. This past summer, I explored the possibility of sterilizing medical equipment inside a body by optically heating gold nanoparticles. Micro and nanotechnology is a relatively new field with many discoveries yet to be uncovered.
Through this experience, I have become fascinated with the potential of using micro and nanotechnology to solve the modern day problems to serve people in need and make a lasting impact in their lives. I not only gained new understandings and concepts outside the classroom but also developed more appreciation for the theories and applications that are taught in classes. The summer experience provided me a clear direction to pursue in future research career. Without the Summer Scholars and Artists program, it would have been hard for me to make the choice to continue on to a graduate school and have a clear goal for the future years."
