Undergraduate Student Awards Banquet 2022-2023

Posted: 

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering honored students at their annual Undergraduate Student Awards Banquet. 

Students, staff, and faculty representing both welding engineering and materials science and engineering gathered at the Fawcett Center for the ceremonial dinner and notable recognitions on April 4. Former employees, emeritus faculty and alumni were in attendance to honor students - and one faculty member - for scholarship, research, leadership, and service. 

We congratulate all WE and MSE students for their commitment to and near completion of their undergraduate degree at The Ohio State University.
