Engineering Duo Earns International Research Nod

May 5, 2016

Zachary Witters and Christopher Rumple, students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, were selected for international research awards.

The University of Wyoming Center for Global Studies (CGS) selected the awardees. Through its support for interdisciplinary faculty and student international projects, the CGS seeks to advance UW to the next level of excellence in internationally focused research to devise solutions to complex global problems.

“These projects show the center’s commitment to support international work and internship opportunities for students that support student educational goals and provide skills for them to look at the implications—from local to global—of a wide spectrum of evolving international challenges,” CGS Director Jean Garrison says.

Witters, who hails from Littleton, Colo., studies chemical engineering. He will research renewable energy in Indonesia through CGS-SER Nielson International Internship/Fieldwork Grant.

Rumple, of York, Pa., will work with Agricultural Institute of Bogor in Bogor, Indonesia, through a CGS-SER Nielson International Internship/Fieldwork Grant. He studies mechanical engineering.
