MSOE Ducks Unlimited chapter earns spot on Sweet 16 list

May 31st, 2016

2016_news_DULogoMay 30, 2016 — Each spring, Ducks Unlimited announces its Sweet 16 list of top-producing volunteer university chapters throughout the nation. This elite group is considered the best of the best when it comes to fundraising and ov

erall chapter strength. In 2015 the Milwaukee School of Engineering chapter put Wisconsin on the list.

“Ducks Unlimited’s university program continues to be a vital part of our organization’s mission. It is a valued revenue generator for our mission, as well as an important source of organizational awareness and leadership,” said David Schuessler, DU’s national director of event fundraising. “I congratulate not only the Sweet 16 chapter volunteers but all college students who have chosen to support DU through university chapters, and I encourage those who have not attended an event to come share in the excitement and fun!”

To qualify for the 2015 Sweet 16 competition, chapters had to raise more than $25,000 during the calendar year. In 2015, university chapters across the nation raised $1.5 million dollars for the ducks; this was the single largest fundraising year in university chapter program history. The Sweet 16 chapters were responsible for raising $925,000 alone, and MSOE’s chapter raised $32,094 in 2015 to support DU’s conservation work.

These chapters earned spots on the Sweet 16 list out of the more than 100 DU university chapters nationwide. DU’s event fundraising system has become a model2016_news_DU_group for other conservation organizations around the world and has funded a significant portion of the more than 13.6 million acres of wetlands and associated habitat DU has conserved since 1937.

The 2015 Varsity chapters also have the distinction of being honored during DU’s 79th National Convention in Anchorage, Alaska, June 1-5, with many chapter representatives in attendance.
“College students across the country are showing that the future of waterfowl and wetlands are important to them,” Schuessler said. “I’m inspired by the number of college students that see the need for conservation and do something about it. I would like to personally thank all our Sweet 16 chapters for their achievement, and I look forward to seeing them among our distinguished chapters next year.”

MSOE Global Brigades make a difference

May 2nd, 2016

2016_news_gb_water2Students traded sun and sand for social change during spring break when the MSOE chapter of Global Brigades sent two groups of volunteers to Central America on service trips. The Medical Brigade traveled to Nicaragua where they worked primarily in a clinic setting providing basic medical care to the community while the Water Brigade traveled to Honduras to build a water system.

Global Brigades is an international non-profit student-led organization that empowers under-resourced communities to meet their health and economic goals aided by university volunteers and local teams. During trips that span one to three weeks in partner counties, students work collaboratively with community members to achieve medical, water and infrastructure needs. When one group of students leaves, another takes its place. Brigades include: Business, Dental, Engineering Environmental, Human Rights, Medical, Microfinance, Public Health and Water.

These service trips are mutually beneficial, offering the participating communities much needed support, while students gain valuable practical skills in their areas of study. Global Brigades delivers integrated health and economic programs to meet a community’s development goals. For more information visit globalbrigades.org.

MSOE Medical Brigade

The MSOE Medical Brigade took 41 student-volunteers to Jinotega, where they split their time between among the communities of Datanil, Hermita and El Salto. In Datanil, volunteers set up a free clinic. “We were able to work in a triage station, which included taking patients’ vitals and getting them ready to see the doctor,” said Medical Brigade President Heather Hansen, a nursing major. Students shadowed local and foreign health professionals – such as dentists and doctors – who were provided pro-bono consultations and medications.

Volunteers also assisted in medication packing and health education. “We worked with the children and taught them proper health hygiene – the importance of brushing their teeth, washing their hands, etc.”

Over the course of the three days, 653 patients accessed the complimentary health care services.

Volunteers then worked in Hermita de Sarawak, where they took on Public Health Brigade tasks, building home health infrastructure. “We helped build latrines, which are their form of a bathroom,” Hansen said. “This consists of a shower, toilet and washing station for clothes.”

The group was able to build eight latrines, as well as pour three concrete floors – two in homes and one in a church.

The final leg of the journey was spent in El Salto, where student helped out in a Water Brigade capacity – picking rocks from a mountainside to be used for a retaining wall.

“The trip really gave people a wide experience of what Global Brigades is about,” Hansen said. “Global Brigades isn’t just about helping in the medical field, it’s about helping those communities in need become sustainable. This is one of the things I love most about the organization: they don’t just go in once and leave, they track data at the clinics, and they look at what the community is missing and help them form businesses to meet those needs. It all starts from meeting the most basic needs, then they work their way up.”

MSOE Water/Engineering Brigades

2016_news_gb_water1A group of MSOE students from the Water Brigades traveled to the Los Hautales, communities on the volcanic island of Amapala in southern Honduras. The goal of the trip was to help area residents plan and install water systems.

For three days, the MSOE group of 21 volunteers worked side-by-side with Honduran men and women digging trench, laying pipe, and backfilling in 100 degree heat. For two days, the volunteers visited communities with existing water systems that were in need of improvement. Students also led an education workshop that focused on watershed protection, which was attended by 50 local children.

This was the first year MSOE had a Water Brigade. It replaces the Architecture Brigade, which was discontinued by the Global Brigade program.

“Students from different majors across MSOE were able to combine their skills to make this trip a huge success,” said Water Brigade President Kelsey Murzyn, civil engineering major.

Beginning in the fall of 2016, MSOE will add a Public Health Brigade to its overarching Global Brigade offerings.

Mechanical engineering seniors win at ASME competitions

April 29th, 2016

2016_news_asme_teamApril 29, 2016 — MSOE’s American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Student Design team took second place at the 2016 Student Design Competition held at Minnesota State University, Mankato, April 22-24, 2016. With this win they will be progressing on to compete at the ASME national competition.

Mechanical engineering seniors Clark Anderson, Sven Kirschtowski, Bilal Nyazi, Devin Runner, Arthur Siebel, Ou Yang and electrical engineering major Pascal Dettmann, designed and built a small machine that processes and launches three projectiles, each made of a standard A4 size piece of paper. The goal is to achieve the farthest distance and complete the task in less than five minutes. The team’s machine accomplished this by rolling up the paper inside a steel tube, crushing it into a dense cylinder using a ball screw that applied over 1,000 pounds of force, and throwing it using a slingshot style mechanism. Professor Mohammad Mahinfalah, Ph.D. is the team’s advisor. The project also served as the team’s senior design project, and will be on display May 27 during MSOE’s annual senior project day on campus.

The ASME Student Design Competition provides a platform for ASME Student Members to present their solutions to a range of design problems – from everyday household tasks to groundbreaking space exploration. Each team is required to design, construct and operate a prototype meeting the requirements of an annually determined problem statement.

The Student Design Competition showcases the extraordinary talents of mechanical engineering students while encouraging them to develop innovative ideas towards an improved quality of life for all. Each year, several teams compete at the regional Student Professional Development Conferences in select locations worldwide. Winners then proceed to finals at the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE). Cash prizes and awards are presented to winners at both regional competitions and the finals.

Justin Clough and Megan Kroll, both mechanical engineering seniors, participated in the ASME Old Guard Oral Presentation Competition. They each delivered a 15-minute presentation on a subject addressing a technical, economic or environmental aspect of engineering. A major portion of the total score is based on the judges’ evaluation of the student’s relative capability to communicate orally, including evidence of a talent to respond effectively during a five-minute question and answer period. Clough was awarded second place and the award for “Best Technical Content.” Kroll received fifth place.

MSOE students recognized for bridge building project in Guatemala

April 22nd, 2016

2016_news_EWB1April 22, 2016 — Residents of the Guatemalan village of Chumisa will now have reliable, year-round access to education, health care, and economic development – thanks to a bridge-building project led by MSOE students.

Under the mentorship of Milwaukee-area Professional Engineers – and in cooperation with Guatemalan community partners– the MSOE chapter of Engineers Without Borders designed and built a 42-foot span reinforced concrete vehicular bridge that connects Chumisa to the nearby municipality of Joyabaj. Without this bridge the route was impa
ssible during the six-month rainy season. The bridge design meets all the relevant US and Guatemalan standards.

The Chumisa bridge was designated a Premier Project at the EWB-USA International Summit in March, an honor reserved for projects that deliver high quality, sustainable solutions to help meet the basic needs of partnering communities abroad. EWB-USA’s chapters are working on projects in 45 countries on five continents.

Students raised their own money for travel and were aided by a grant from the O2016_news_EWB3ffice of Servant-Leadership. The cost of the project itself is shared among the participating groups: The municipality provided cement and other materials and equipment worth over $15,000, the community of Chumisa provided wood and labor worth over $17,000, and EWB-MSOE’s donors provided approximately $28,000 to complete the funding. “Like all of our projects, this was conceived, planned, and implemented with local partners,” said Dr. Doug Stahl, co-advisor of the EWB-MSOE group.

Construction began in February, when an MSOE team worked with the community to excavate for the footings, construct the footings, and construct the abutment walls. The EWB-Wisconsin Professional Partners travel team then worked with the community to construct wooden formwork and concrete beams. Finally, a second MSOE team arrived about three weeks later to lead the community during construction of the deck and railing, as well as the wing walls. Professional mentors provided guidance for the students, reviewing drawings and calculations regularly during the design phase that started in June 2015.

The community of Chumisa provided manpower on a daily basis. “There is great focus on partnership and the vital importance on working with community members, side by side in construction and communication during design to ensure their needs are met,” said Project Manager Riley Padron, senior civil engineering major. “We do not simply work to give them a bridge and then leave; we work to provide them with means and opportunity to build the bridge with us and take full ownership after we leave.”

2016_news_EWB2When students traveled to Chumisa over spring break, village residents were ready to work. “There were a couple of days when we had more than 60 people show up to help,” said senior Logan Bertling, civil engineering major. “[We] had to start coming up with more tasks to keep everyone busy and involved – which is a wonderful problem to have and helped us get ahead of schedule.”

The experience was a great opportunity for students to apply the theory they learned in class. “I was able to use everything I had learned up to that point to perform the structural calculations for the superstructure of the bridge. I gained a ton of valuable construction experience and learned a lot about carpentry since I was a part of the formwork crew.”

The Chumisa Bridge, which is expected to open end of May, is MSOE’s seventh project in Joyabaj since 2008.

In June 2015, EWB-MSOE designed and constructed the El Salitre pedestrian bridge that spanned 230 feet across the Rio Arco. The trip for the El Salitre project lasted two weeks. Padron has had the opportunity to participate in multiple projects and trips with EWB-MSOE. “These trips provide a new perspective on the impact of engineering projects. Our partnership with these communities has allowed us to help improve their lives and their communities as a whole. That experience stays with you and helps motivate students to perform to the best of their abilities.”

Milwaukee School of Engineering is an independent, non-profit university with about 2,900 students. MSOE offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering, business and nursing.
