As part of an ongoing grant from the National Science Foundation, Kathryn Jablokow, professor of engineering design and mechanical engineering at Penn State Great Valley, worked alongside Mohamed Megahed and Pratik Pachpute, two Great Valley graduate students, to study the effectiveness of entrepreneurial teams. Their research paper won second place in the entrepreneurial division of the American Society for Engineering Education.
Master of Engineering Management students at Penn State Great Valley recently collaborated with local companies as part of a capstone project to incorporate a variety of modeling and analysis tools. The partnership was rewarding for both the organizations and students.
Ashkan Negahban, assistant professor of engineering management, has joined Penn State Great Valley from Auburn University, where he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in simulation modeling and probability and statistics. This fall he will teach an online economics course for engineering students and an on-campus capstone course in engineering management where students will create relevant projects for local organizations.
