Bucknell Engineering Research Completed Over the Summer

This past summer, many of our students took advantage of opportunities to work side by side with faculty on a variety of interesting research projects. Below is a sampling of these projects. Students across all of our engineering disciplines, as well as some from non-engineering majors, were guided by faculty in exploring a wide range of topics. By all measures, these experiences have proven to be valuable to those involved. Project Title: CSCI 187: Creative Computing and Society, A Student-Generated Intro Computer Science Course Students: Sierra Magnotta ’18, linguistics, Anushikha Sharma ’18, computer science and women’s and gender studies, and Jingya Wu […]

High Density Poultry: Health Risk or Opportunity?

By Leah Murphy ’17, Staff Writer Project Title: High Density Poultry: Health Risk or Opportunity? Student: Dalton Stewart ’19, environmental engineering Mentor: Professor Deborah Sills, civil & environmental engineering Agricultural runoff in Pennsylvania poses potential health risks because of its eutrophication of waterways, as well as human exposure to pathogens present in animal manures. A great deal of research is therefore looking into alternative uses for manure. Environmental engineering student Dalton Stewart ’19 spent the past summer collecting and recording data on all high-density poultry operations within the 38 Pennsylvania counties served by the Geisinger Health System so that researchers […]
