IMSE Department Receives GAANN Grant
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded a Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need, or GAANN, grant to the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) Department. The grant, for $534,000, will benefit five students over the next three years.
Led by faculty members Erick Jones, Don Liles, Victoria Chen, and Jay Rosenberger, the program has a research emphasis in assistive technology for health and human services, home-based healthcare, and homeland security and will be a key element in the College of Engineering’s larger initiative to create a model graduate program, with a particular effort made to recruit students from underrepresented minority groups.
Faced with the need to increase its graduate student population, the College is working to revive this population by recruiting more domestic students, particularly those from traditionally underrepresented groups.
Students recruited under the GAANN program will receive individualized academic counseling and mentoring, extensive research experience, teaching opportunities, and professional development activities.
