Rice students are known for their hard work and diligence, but they play hard, too, and gravitate toward social events that are fun, inclusive and cultivate a sense of community spirit. Recently, some MECH students hit the ice for an impromptu class with the Houston Curling Club.
During the competition, 10 graduate students, including MECH's Andrew Erwin and Arti Qormemeti, had just three minutes and a single slide to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance.
Tayfun Tezduyar, the James F. Barbour Professor of Mechanical Engineering (MECH) at Rice University, will receive the 2018 Ted Belytschko Applied Mechanics Award from the Applied Mechanics Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
