UW Architectural Engineering Students featured in London Video
In June the UW Architectural Engineering Study Abroad program was invited to an exclusive talk at the world headquarters of Arup Group, one of the world's leading engineering firms, in London. The program featured Arup engineer Will Whitby on "Less is More; An Obsession with Material Efficiency." Some faculty and students were interviewed afterwards. Arup recently published the video on Youtube. UW Architectural Engineering student Sawyer Zimmerman comments at 21:50; and student Kaitlin Kaliebe at 22:05. Earlier, faculty member Jon Gardzelewski appears at about 19:00; and Anthony Denzer at about 19:35.

Engineers Without Borders in the Spotlight
In August the UW chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) traveled to Mbita, Kenya, to begin work on a project to build a dormitory. The Laramie Boomerang published a feature on the project. Students Adam Block, Sierra Johnson, and Zach Witters are featured in the article, along with professor David Mukai.
Devoted to Giving Back
After graduating from high school, Adam Block of Cheyenne, Wyo., spent two years volunteering overseas. There, he discovered a passion: helping people in developing countries, especially children with special needs. Now this mechanical and energy systems engineering student is using his education to give back even more.
