Vaughn Students Present at Engineering Seminar Series
On Tuesday, November 17 Anaid Torres Ortiz ‘18 and Ajish Mathew ’17 were the key speakers for another installment in the fall engineering seminar series. Both students presented their research for shaft assembly for turbo-fan engines and ground support equipment for a Life Science Glovebox.
Torres Ortiz, a junior in the mechanical engineering technology program, completed her summer research internship at Venture Aerobearings in Charleston, SC. Torres Ortiz was assigned the task of providing a better match for the main GE90 engine designed for the Boeing 777. The manufacturing process conducted by Torres Ortiz was statistically proven before being implemented to avoid any risk of defective hardware that could affect the overall output.
Mathew, a senior in the mechanical engineering technology program, worked at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Mathew spent his summer designing the support structure for the Life Science Glovebox. The Life Sciences Glovebox (LSG) is contained in a sealed work area in the International Space Station, which helps to provide bio isolation and waste control.
