CEM faculty Wins 2016 Invent Alaska Competition award

Earlier this year, the UAF Vice Chancellors for Research called for entries for the first Invent Alaska Competition - a competition that was open to UAF students, staff and faculty. This month, winners were announced.

Two CEM faculty members were among the 8 inventors who won awards. Rajive Ganguli and Tathagata Ghosh, both from Department of Geological and Mining Engineering, won a faculty innovation award in industrial processes and workforce development for their work on the Dynamic Mill Simulator. Their invention simulates mining operations for managing mines and training mine operators.

Congratulations to Drs. Ganguli and Gosh!
