CENG Represents Half of Cal Poly Projects Headed to CSU Student Research Competition Next Month

Biomedical Engineering major Alyssa McCulloch is working on a project with faculty member Kristen Cardinal that will be involved in this year's CSU Student Research Competition.

Five of the ten projects representing Cal Poly at this year’s California State University Student Research Competition next month are from the College of Engineering.

The competition, now in its 35th year, showcases the innovative research and creative activities of undergraduate and graduate students in the full range of academic programs offered by the CSU. Hosted by Cal Poly Pomona, the competition will be held virtually this year, April 30 and May 1.

At Cal Poly, the Academic Senate Grants Review Committee served as jurors to select ten presentations from 46, representing all colleges, after the university’s own internal competition in February.

The engineering projects include:

Education (Undergraduate):

Exploring Engineering Faculty Beliefs and Practices on Student Evaluation and Pedagogy

Researchers: Eric Cuellar (Industrial Engineering) and Ahmed Osman (Civil Engineering)

Advisor: Ben Lutz (Mechanical Engineering)

Engineering and Computer Science (Undergraduate):

PolyCrypto: A Polynomial-based Architecture for Post-Quantum Secure Cryptographic Schemes

Researcher: Vasanth Sadhasivan (Computer Engineering)

Advisors: Joseph Callenes-Sloan, Andrew Danowitz, Paul Hummel (Electrical Engineering / Computer Engineering)

Autonomous Instrument for Aircraft Acoustic Measurements

Researcher: Andy Wu (Mechanical Engineering)

Advisor: Russell Westphal (Mechanical Engineering)

Health, Nutrition and Clinical Sciences (Undergraduate):
