Vaughn’s engineering and technology students attended The Latin American and Caribbean Consortium of Engineering Institutions (LACCEI) 2019 Conference in Montego Bay, Jamaica in July. Six Vaughn student team research papers were accepted for presentation and publication in the LACCEI 2019 international conference. Vaughn student papers were selected to compete among ten finalists for the student paper session, and all six submitted papers were accepted for the poster session of LACCEI 2019.

Finalists for the LACCEI paper session included, Vehicle Design For Formula SAE 2019 Competition by Ryan Lewis and Andriy Belz; Smart Braille Learning Block Systems by Niki Taheri ’19 and Atif Saeed ’19; Autonomous Search and Rescue Project (ASAES) by Ryan B. Tang Dan ’17 ; Walking Wise Camera Sensor Smart Cane by Jevoy James ’19, Richi Ramlal ’19; A Study of Notched Beam Stress Concentration by Aderet Pantierer ’21 and Shumul Pantierer ’21.

“This was a great accomplishment by Vaughn’s engineering students to receive all top three awards (first, second, and third place) of the student paper session competition of 2019 LACCEI Conference,” said Dr. Hossein Rahemi, engineering and technology chair.
