While most students are enjoying a relaxing summer break a few are continuing their research. In July, faculty, students and alumni convened in Omaha, Nebraska for the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers Conference (ASABE). While at the conference, members participated in competitions, listened to presentations and networked with fellow ASABE members.

International Meeting-Gunlogson Design Competition. This competition sees students showcase various engineering projects. Following a win from last year, students once again were successful, placing first and second place.
