At the forum, UC was awarded PACE Silver Certification. This award was based on the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s (CEAS) and the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning’s (DAAP) work on furthering the PACE mission, and for their collaborative student projects. The University of Cincinnati is among the first of PACE institutions to receive this award.
In addition to the Silver Certification award, UC’s Engineering and Industrial Design global collaborative team of faculty and students won an award for “Third Ready for Production” for the Portable Assisted Mobility Device (PAMD) Global Competition.
Seven global collaborative teams competed in this competition, each consisting of four to five universities from around the world. UC participated as one of these teams and worked on the PAMD project this past academic year.
The team included three different disciplines:
- Engineering, led by UC PACE Integrator Professor Sam Anand from Mechanical Engineering.
- Industrial Design, led by UC PACE Integrator Professor Brigid O’Kane from DAAP.
- Graphic Communications, led by UC Professor Ben Meyer from DAAP.
