The Texas A&M Student Research Week (SRW) planning committee would like to congratulate Prerna Jain on her second place win in the Engineering and Architecture subject area at the 19th annual Student Research Week 2016. The College of Engineering had the largest number of competitors at SRW, making up 32% of our 740 participants.
The annual festival, hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy, will feature free family fun for scientists and kids of all ages. MKOPSC’s demonstration will focus on hazard detection, emergency response, and human error, taught through a detailed model of a plant and Lego toys.
The two-day symposium will allow delegates from industry, regulatory institutions, and academia to hear about safety success stories, incident case studies, best practices, new legislative regimes, and recent advances of research on process safety.
The objective of the committee meetings is simple – provide industry insight to student research and case studies. Students prepare their presentations, often months in advance, and then the steering committee gives them feedback.
