Machlin Endowment Helps EWB Help Thousands

A $27,500 endowment created by alumnus Charles “Chuck” Machlin, who graduated in 1982 with an Industrial Engineering and Operations Research degree, has been set up “in perpetuity” to support the worthy international work done by our campus chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB). Machlin’s gifts have previously supported other funding priorities at the College of Engineering, including unrestricted funds to be used at the dean's discretion, and funding for our summer Research Experience for Undergraduates.

MIE Alum Wins $50,000 in MassChallenge

Therapeutic Systems, a company cofounded by Brian Mullen (right) when he was a graduate student in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department, has won $50,000 in the MassChallenge award competition. The concept for Therapeutic Systems was a vest developed by Mullen to help calm people with autism. He cofounded the company with fellow UMass Amherst alumnus Chris Leidel (left). Therapeutic Systems was among 26 startups from around the world that split $1 million in awards through the challenge.

Study Abroad to Broaden Your Horizons

Last semester, 17 enterprising students from all four departments in the College of Engineering took advantage of the UMass Amherst Study Abroad Program to take courses in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, Australia, China, and the United Arab Emirates. Among these international students were civil engineering major Megan Rodgers and mechanical engineering major Igor Galis (pictured). Ask all these engineering students why they chose to study overseas and you’ll probably get 17 different answers.
