Synthetic Network for the Alaska "RainBelt" Electric Power System
The student team developed publicly accessible Alaska-based power system models and associated load and generation data representing seasonal and futuristic scenarios. The model and data is shared via GitHub and the BetterGrids repository, and is reproducible through code or documentation. Prior to this project, Alaska and Alaskan generation or load data were excluded from existing power system models, which are essential for assessing operations and planning of electric grids, including power systems' stability and future generation and load scenarios.

Developing a synthetic railbelt power system model
A team of electrical and chemical engineering graduate students on a capstone project focused on developing a synthetic power system model of Alaska’s Railbelt transmission system.
Third annual Boeing capstone
Students earned their wings during a spring quarter capstone project undertaken in partnership with Boeing. Fittingly, they worked on a novel design for a wingtip end cap that was produced using 3D printing.
Students design a rover to help fish
As part of an industry capstone project, engineering students created a rover to inspect sewer pipes and culverts for damage that may prevent fish migration.
