NSF grant will address disparities among Black engineering technology students

Anne Lucietto from Purdue Polytechnic's School of Engineering Technology has teamed up with a wide range of researchers to investigate disparities between African American student enrollment in engineering technology compared to other demographic groups. Lucietto was awarded nearly $300,000 by the National Science Foundation to undertake the project.

Magana's NSF CAREER research aims to improve engineering education

Alejandra Magana, assistant professor of computer and information technology, has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award.

The $500,000 award, to be used over five years, will fund Magana’s research on identifying the best way to incorporate modeling and simulation practices into undergraduate engineering education.
