The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers student group hosted e-Day, a one-day camp for 7th-10th graders interested in learning more about engineering careers. Thirty participants and eighteen SHPE members enjoyed four hands-on activities including Motor Mania, Angry Birds Catapult, Helicopter Design and Drop, and Water Resources. Thanks to Eric Booth, faculty in Electrical and Computer Engineering for facilitating Motor Mania! Funding provided by the Idaho NSF EPSCoR Program and by the National Science Foundation.
Advising Office, ENGR 101
Did you know that the College of Engineering Advising Office has three computers that students can use any time. We provide academic advising, tours, and career resources. Please stop in any time and let us know how we can help you!
Tour of Motive Power
Engineering students invited to Motive Power Tour on Friday, April 27, 2-4pm. This is limited to 30 students, so rsvp to email@example.com if you are interested.
Seeking electronic products that you don’t want for e-Camp activity. The participants of e-Camp get to take electronic products apart and see what’s inside. Cell phones, computers, fax, printers, radios, cameras, etc. If you have products that you’d like to get rid of please drop them off in ENGR 101.
Deadline To Accept FY 2012-2013 Work-Study Awards
Students who have been offered work-study awards for FY 2012-2013 must accept them by May 1st or the award will be canceled. If you have students working for you using work-study funding and they were offered a work-study award and you plan to have them work for you next year, please remind them to accept their work-study award before the deadline. An email was sent to the students, however, I also wanted to make you aware of this important deadline so you don’t miss out on having your students work for you using work-study funds if they failed to read the email and missed the deadline.

Course Evaluations for Spring 2012
Provide feedback for your Spring 2012 College of Engineering
Courses. Feedback will be completely anonymous, and will go directly to faculty and department chairs. The survey can be found here http://coeneval.boisestate.edu
Introduction to Engineering ENGR 120 and ENGR 130
When registering for classes, students have 2 class options to choose from to satisfy the Introduction to Engineering Class required for all Civil, Electrical, Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering Students. The first option is ENGR 120 which is 3 credits and includes 2, 50 minute lectures per week and 2, 75 minute labs a week. The second option is ENGR 130 which is an undergraduate service learning class. ENGR 130 is 4 credits and includes the same 2, 50 minute lectures as ENGR 120 but the two labs are 30 minutes longer or 105 minutes each resulting in the extra credit.
For the first half of the semester the ENGR 120 and ENGR 130 students complete the same projects including units on consumer products, manufacturing and electrical engineering. The second half of the semester the ENGR 120 students will complete units on composites, bridges and mousetrap car design while the ENGR 130 students work on a service learning project.
The ENGR 130 students will experience the satisfaction in solving a client’s real-world problem as they apply the engineering design process to design and deliver a solution, not to mention it looks great on your resume! More information is available at http://coen.boisestate.edu/fuse/ or Click to Watch a Video on ENGR 130. Contact ENGR 120/130 Coordinator Carol Sevier firstname.lastname@example.org or 426-1089 if you have any questions.
Looking for open seats of Chem 111 or Physics 211?
Some of you may benefit from looking at the Learning Communities being offered this Fall. Learning communities are simply a combination of two or more courses designed to maximize student engagement. When you see a familiar face in more than one class, you might be more apt to form study groups, which can be an effective method of learning course material.
Fall learning communities include various class combinations such as: Math 170 and Chemistry 111 (75860 and 75855) or Math 175 and Physics 211 (75854). For those of you switching to the Fall 2012 catalog there is a University Foundation 100 combination with Engineering 120 (75857).
See the flyer for more information on how to find Learning Communities.
Idaho Shakespeare Festival
An event on June 20 with the Idaho Shakespeare Festival
A special event tailored for the local engineering community, scheduled for June 20. It will include discounted ($28) tickets to see Agatha Christie’s Mousetrap, but the special part is that this will be preceded with a tour of the ISF Scene Shop and Costume Shop and other technical aspects of the ISF that are not generally available to the public. Tickets for this event are limited to 100 because of capacity of the tours, and it is likely that they will sell quickly. Details about the event and how to purchase tickets are available at http://coen.boisestate.edu/bobhay/engineeringshakespeare/.

Engineering Residential College Students Complete Fire Restoration Planting
On March 10, 2012, seventeen residents from Boise State University’s Engineering Residential College, a Living Learning Community, planted hundreds of sagebrush and bitterbrush seedlings in an area east of Boise, where a human-caused fire last summer burned critical winter range for big game. Civil engineering sophomore Jacob Norris organized and coordinated the volunteer activity through the Idaho Department of Fish & Game. The group received an award for their service to the community. The 2011-2012 Engineering Residential College includes sixteen freshmen, four sophomores, program assistant Jacob O’Brien and also faculty in residence professor Janet Callahan and teen in residence Ben (who also volunteered that day).
Other service activities that the 2011-2012 Engineering Residential College have enjoyed include a wide variety of hands-on activities, from outreach with hundreds of young people during Discover Engineering Day, to helping build for a day for Habitat for Humanity and readying the Bogus Basin Nordic trails lighting system for the season.
Student Cluster Competition 2012
SC12 is the one of the most widely known international High Performance Computing (HPC) conferences and I am seeking 5 undergraduate students for me to prepare a proposal to SC12 for the parallel programming competition scheduled on November. I already announced this in Computer Science and I want to reach out entire college of engineering undergraduate students who know how to write C/C++ program. It is NOT required to know how to write parallel program since I can teach them how during summer.
Please contact (email@example.com) if you would like to participate. The travel will be supported by the SC12 conference if the proposal is selected.

QTI seeking intern:
We are looking to hire an intern (preferably a Mechanical Engineering junior) that would work possibly full-time this summer and then part-time during the school year. If we found the right person
this could become a full-time position after graduation. See the attached job description. The job would likely be at our manufacturing plant in Nampa (not here in Boise) so I realize that may make things more difficult during the school year but we’re open to working around school schedules and could possibly arrange for work to be done in Boise.
A little bit about QTI:
Quality Thermistor, Inc. (QTI) was founded in 1977 to meet the increasing demand for high quality electronic components for the aerospace industry. Since then, QTI has exceeded the requirements of some of the most stringent high cost of failure applications, changing the landscape of the supply chain for the entire industry. Today, QTI continues to maintain its leadership position for mission-critical applications as well as for medical and industrial applications by supplying the world’s top companies with innovative products and services.
Please have interested applicants send a resume to my attention (email@example.com).
