Nguyen and Tecson Complete Scieneering Summer Program

Thuy Nguyen and Hannah Mae Tecson, Virginia Tech undergraduates, recently completed a interdisciplinary summer research program at AIC. Science and engineering sophomores and juniors enrolled in the “Scieneering Program” participate in coursework leading to minors in Interdisciplinary Engineering and Science or Science, Engineering and Law and conduct at least 3 credit-hours of interdisciplinary research mentored by faculty outside their major discipline. Students gain experience tackling real-world, multi-dimensional problems under faculty direction. AIC director Dr. Seong K. Mun served as their mentor, leading them through projects focusing on prostate and breast cancer research, mobile health, and electronic health record technology.
