Three engineering students receive awards at the 2022 Graduate Exhibition


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Three engineering graduate students received awards for their research and scholarship in the 37th annual Penn State Graduate Exhibition.

The event was held from March 22-25 virtually. According to the graduate school’s website, the exhibition “places special emphasis on communicating research and creative endeavor to a general audience and offers an unusual opportunity for professional development by challenging graduate students to present their work virtually in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields.” 

The categories were: research poster option, with sub-categories of arts and humanities, engineering, health and life sciences, and physical sciences and mathematics; design option; performance option; video option; visual arts option; and data visualization option.

Vishnu Kumar, industrial engineering student, received first place in the research poster option, engineering subcategory, for "Machine Learning based Suicide Prediction and Development of Suicide Vulnerability Index for US Counties." In the same category, Asif Mahmud, civil engineering student, received second place for "Estimation of Crash Type Frequency Accounting for Misclassification in Crash Data."

Connor Huxman, mechanical engineering student, received second place in the video option for "'Implanting Flexibility' - Leveraging Mechanical Compliance for Improved Orthopedic Implants."

In total, 68 Penn State graduate students received awards at the exhibition. The complete list of names, degree programs and projects can be viewed in the original press release.
