"Student Veterans in Engineering Education"
Research Findings with Drs. Joyce Main, Susan Lord, Catherine Mobley and Catherine Brawner

We are honored to have this event scheduled for the Purdue community. The team's research findings, discussion of promising practices offered at each institution and specific tips and feedback to help encourage veterans to consider engineering will be insightful for both veterans and civilians. Read more to learn more about their research, and the presentation planned, and the authors.

Clapping Circle Explained

This is a long-awaited presentation by the ASA Purdue Chapter who will also share their results at the ASA Annual Conference in Chicago next month. For our acoustical engineering alumni, you might recall Professor Bolton's theory on the phenomena of the sound that returns to the clapper while standing in the center of a clapping circle (the circular architectural features made of paving stones). There are at least two other theories out there and the students wanted a firm answer. Led by Multidisciplinary Engineering senior Ely Wing who is studying Acoustical Engineering, the team of students chose the clapping circle as their semester project for ASA in hopes to attract new members and to get their answer. Learn about their process and which theory was correct!
