The Washkewicz College of Engineering held its 3nd Annual Research Day on October 30, 2015. The keynote speaker, Dr. Rickey Shyne, Director of Research and Engineering at NASA-Glenn Research Center, gave an excellent presentation related to ongoing and future research at NASA-Glenn Research Center (GRC).
