Year in Review
Inaugural annual report
The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME) at
Washington State University is committed to delivering a worldclass education to our students and engaging in cutting edge
research for society’s benefit. We are also committed to
continuous improvement, which begins with measuring and
tracking various performance indicators for the School. Indicators
include such metrics as degrees awarded, enrollment trends,
number of faculty, extramural research support, research
publications, student scholarships, and student demographics. The
purpose of this annual report is to summarize that data in a
concise and meaningful format. This is our inaugural annual report, and it is our plan
to continue to track our progress by issuing a report in the first quarter of each
calendar year.
Record number of students
In 2014 we continued to see significant growth in our undergraduate mechanical
engineering program. We awarded 191 baccalaureate degrees in 2014, including 13
BS degrees in Materials Science and Engineering and 178 BS degrees in Mechanical
Engineering, making us the largest mechanical engineering program in the Northwest,
as measured by BS degrees awarded. Our undergraduate student numbers have
doubled in the past decade. The year 2014 was also a historic high for our graduate
programs, particularly in the number of PhD students. In fall 2014 there were 156
graduate students advised by faculty in the School of MME. The total number of PhD
students in Mechanical Engineering has jumped from 26 in 2005 to 67 in 2014.
Likewise, the number of PhD students in Materials Science and Engineering advised by
MME faculty has increased from 18 in 2005 to 41 in 2014.
New hires
To keep up with this rapid growth, we hired several new faculty members to provide
the unique and transformative educational experiences that allow our students to
succeed, and we are searching for up to eight additional faculty to start in 2015/2016.
In 2014 we welcomed four new tenure track faculty to Pullman. These new faculty
were selected from a pool of over 400 applicants:




Qizhen (Katherine) Li, hired as an associate professor, an expert in light weight
metals, materials synthesis, and processing; previously at University of Nevada,
Reno.
Rahul Panat, hired as an associate professor, an expert in manufacturing,
microelectronics/flexible electronics, li-ion batteries; previously at Intel.
Arda Gozen, hired as an assistant professor, an expert in manufacturing
processes, micro-nano manufacturing, flexible-stretchable electronic devises;
previously at Carnegie Mellon University.
Min Kyu Song, hired as an assistant professor, an expert in energy technologies
(batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors) and rational design of materials and
manufacturing technologies; previously at UC Berkley.

Reuters.
Susmita Bose received the Richard M. Fulrath award from the American Ceramic
Society.
Senior ME student, Breanna Bence, was selected by the college as the CEA
Outstanding Senior.
Tyler Strom, was selected by the college as the CEA Employee of the Year for his
work as undergraduate academic coordinator in MME and coordinator for the
branch campus undergraduate programs.
Thanks to Lloyd Smith’s Sports Science Laboratory, Washington State University
was selected as one of the nation’s top 5 sports engineering programs in the
nation by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Eight mechanical engineering seniors in WSU's mechanical engineering program in
Bremerton were named as co-inventors on two patents in 2014. Two of the
Bremerton senior design teams worked with Eagle Harbor Holdings to develop two
patents. For each patent, four students were named as the inventors. The total
number of Bremerton mechanical engineering students who have been listed as
co-inventors on patents since 2010 is 22.
Milestones and promotions
We celebrated several milestones in 2014:



The first 23 students from our mechanical engineering program at WSU North
Puget Sound at Everett received their diplomas in May.
The School of MME awarded $170,650 in scholarships to 101 students. These
scholarships were provided by generous gifts from over 30 different donors. We
celebrated these scholarships with a scholarship recognition ceremony and
reception in September.
We inducted 147 graduating students and friends of the school into the Order of
the Engineer, with two induction ceremonies in Pullman (one in the spring and
one in the fall), and additional ceremonies in Bremerton and Everett. The Order of
the Engineer induction ceremony is a tradition in the School of MME, and
emphasizes pride and responsibility in the engineering profession.

In addition, several of our faculty and staff have earned promotions in 2014.



Kelvin Lynn was promoted to the rank of Regents Professor—a rank which can be
held by no more than 30 Washington State University faculty members at any one
time. Kelvin was honored at the Celebration of Excellence Dinner at Showcase in
March.
Sinisa Mesarovic was promoted to Full Professor.
Steve Brown was promoted to Senior Instructor
New programs
We started several new programs in 2014:







We launched the new Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB2) with a kickoff meeting in Ames, IA. This new NSF funded Industry/University Cooperative
Research Center (I/UCRC) is co-located at Washington State and Iowa State and
includes 23 member companies supporting research projects through their
annual membership dues to the center.
A new $1.8 million NIH research grant, led by Susmita Bose and Amit
Bandyopadhyay, on improving the way bone implants integrate into the body
began in 2014.
John McCloy started two projects in 2014 related to vitrified nuclear waste from
the Department of Energy, one titled “Compositional dependence of glass
corrosion associated with nepheline formation” from the DOE Office of River
Protection, and another titled “Apatite and sodalite based glass-bonded waste
forms for immobilization of 129I and mixed halide radioactive wastes” in
collaboration with Rutgers University from the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy.
Katie Zhong began a new project from the US Department of Agriculture’s
Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) on “Applying Abundant Plants to
Develop Battery Materials and Benefits to the Agricultural Economy.”
Kelvin Lynn was awarded a $750K grant from the DOE’s Proliferation Detections
Program which will result in the production of a clearly documented innovative
cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) crystal growth system for use of room temperature
radiation detectors, which is critical to the Nation’s security.
Our faculty participated in five different Joint Center for Aerospace Technology
Innovation (JCATI) projects in 2014.
With a $3 million donation from the estate of Robert Stewart, we established the
Robert Stewart Memorial Scholarship Fund to support $120,000 per year in
scholarships to WSU students from Bremerton and surrounding counties pursuing
degrees in our engineering program in Bremerton.
And, of course, we continued to do great science and engineering. In 2014 our faculty
led advances in fields ranging from biomaterials to energy storage. Some of their most
significant accomplishments the past year include:

Katie Zhong and her research team developed a chewing gum-like battery material
that can dramatically improve the safety of lithium ion batteries.



Jinwen Zhang and his research team developed a biodegradable gel made mostly
from soy protein that can absorb more than 250 times its weight in water and
could help farmers retain moisture in drought-stricken fields.
A research team led by Grant Norton and Su Ha developed a fuel cell that can
directly convert liquid fuels, such as jet fuel or gasoline, to electricity—providing a
dramatically more energy-efficient way to create electric power for planes or cars.
I think you will find the School of MME is continuing to build on the tradition of
excellence established through generations of outstanding students, faculty, and staff
at WSU. I would welcome hearing from you about your thoughts for the School’s future.
