Trine students again win national
safety and health design competition
Award to be given Oct. 28
Lynn Secondo, Steven Sarker
ANGOLA, Ind. – A Trine University team recently won a national award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, continuing a winning trend byTrine students.
Lynn Secondo, of Maumee, Ohio, and Steven R. Sarker, of Fort Wayne, won the team national safety and health division student design competition award for safety from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). They graduated in spring 2012.
Coulter, a spring 2012 chemical engineering graduate from Lebanon, earned honorable mention in the contest.
They were seniors when they won the competition.
Each year, chemical engineers from a designated company devise and judge a student contest problem that typifies a real, working, chemical engineering design situation. The problem's solution requires a wide range of skills in calculation and evaluation of both technical data and economic factors. The award is presented to team and individuals for designs that apply appropriate principles of chemical process safety.
The award will be presented Sunday (Oct. 28) during the 2012 AIChE Annual Student Conference in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Trine University chemical engineering students have won national design safety awards in five of the past six years.
