Third Year Mechanical Engineering Student Wins $1000 ASME Scholarship

Third Year Mechanical Engineering Student Wins $1000 ASME Scholarship

Congratulations to Ms. Selin Mariadhas who has been awarded a scholarship of $1000 by the Washington, DC Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for her ongoing research project in prosthetics.

The long-term goal of Selin's research project is to make prosthetics that can be controlled by thought. Selin plans to accomplish this by using an optical fiber sensor, so small that it would be less likely to be rejected by the body. This sensor would connect a person's nervous system to the prosthetic device, allowing handicapped people to use mechanical limbs that function nearly as well as the original limbs.
