Congratulations to Alexandria Moseley, a recent graduate who made the Society of Manufacturing Engineers 30 Under 30 list! With a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and another in manufacturing engineering, Alexandria distinguished herself as a student leader and role model. She was chair of her SME student chapter, an Oregon State Engineering Ambassador, and, at various times, a research or teaching assistant. In addition, she participated in the competitive MECOP program, which places high-achieving students into two, six-month industry internships. As a result of her dedication and academic contributions, she was recognized as one of the 15 New Faces of Engineering (College Edition) by National Engineers Week 2012.
We are proud of Alexandria and wish her luck as she pursues a master’s degree in engineering management at Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen. To read more, visit the SME website.
Energy is a constant topic of debates locally, nationally and internationally. The discussion about where and how we should obtain energy to maintain our way of life is an important issue. Clean, domestic, accessible, sustainable and economical; new and existing energy systems are being vetted every day based on these criteria. I am just one of the many people working toward a balanced new solution to our energy needs.

Life has been good to OSU alumni Mike and Judy Gaulke. So when it came time to determine how they would share their good fortune, they chose the institutions that had been meaningful in their lives, and topping the list was Oregon State University.
The Gaulkes have pledged $3.5 million to create the Michael and Judith Gaulke Chair of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at OSU. This endowed faculty position fund is the largest to date for the College of Engineering. The inaugural chair will be awarded to OSU electrical engineering professor John Wager, an award-winning teacher and dedicated researcher.
Cory Cunningham graduated from OSU with a degree in construction engineering management. While serving two tours of combat in Iraq with the United States Marines, Cory saw the devastation of the country’s infrastructure firsthand and correlating clean water problems plaguing the Iraqi people. In 2009, he combined his passion, drive, and determination to start a company that is helping millions of people gain access to much-needed resources. Continue reading →
