LANCO Presentation and Engineering challenge

Who: Peter Vachon, LANCO engineer and engineering resident for USM

When/where: Thursday, September 26th12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Peter Vachon is our new engineering resident here at USM. He will be presenting information concerning his company LANCO and their products. This will include an overview PowerPoint, a video demonstration of some of their most recent machines, and a presentation of an engineering problem they are currently trying to figure out. We don’t generally get this kind of in depth insight into the commercial and industrial side of engineering, so come and listen!


Co-op and External Programs here at USM

Who: Gregory S. Cavanaugh, USM Program Manager of External Programs

When/where: Thursday, October 3rd 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Greg Cavanaugh works here at USM (in this very building, in fact) and handles many of the external and industry-partnered programs that operate in this building. He is one of the resources we have here to help us get valuable experience in industry. In this presentation Greg will explain USM’s co-op program and show how you can get more involved in industry (co-op, tours, internships, etc). For anyone who doesn’t know Greg or anyone who wants to gain some experience, this lecture is a MUST.

 

Research: Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Sensors and applications

Who: Peter Juarez, Senior Mechanical Engineering student at USM

When/where: Thursday, October 17th 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Last summer I was fortunate enough to spend 10 weeks in NASA’s Langley Research Center (LaRC) on an internship under the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. While I was down there I worked with a researcher named Dr. William ‘Cy’ Wilson. We worked on Surface Acoustic Wave sensors for use in impact detection, wireless interrogation, and strain sensing. If you’ve never heard of SAW devices (guarantee most of you have one in your cellphone), would like to hear what kind of environment it was like at NASA, or are just bored and want free food, come and listen.


USM Fusion Project: Who, What, Why?

Who: Edwin Meserve, President of the Fusion Group, Electrical Engineering student at USM,

When/where: Thursday, October 24th 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Did you know that the Engineering Student Committee has a sub group called the Fusion Group? Did you know they already successfully made a fusion prototype, and are working on prototype 2? Do you know what fusion is? If you answered no to any of these questions, you should probably come out and hear what Ed has to say. Ed and his officers have been working on this project for several semesters, and have been directly funded by the Student Senate to do so. They are always looking for more help and insight, so this will be a great opportunity to learn more and join in on their research.

The topic of Christianity (many religious, in fact) and the LGBTQA community can be a complicated thing.  There is, for many, a need to heal.  For others, there is a search to reconnect with faith.  For some, there is an interest in dialogue and communication.

Join in our weekly conversation with the Rev. Rus Willette, advisor to the Christian Navigators student organization to explore these topics and more.

Angus King

Angus King
U.S. Senator

Lecture given as part of the Fall 2013 Speaker Series
"Politics Then and Now, In Maine and the Nation."

Event is free and open to the public.

Angus King, Independent, was elected to the U.S. Senate by a wide margin in 2012. He earlier served two terms as Governor of Maine (1995-2003). An attorney, King was a public broadcaster and successful business executive before seeking public office. In his career, King has worked in particular on issues related to economic development, technology, and the environment. He has regularly sought to frame bi-partisan solutions to policy problems.


Full list of speakers for "Politics Then and Now"

About the series:

We’ve come a long way since President John F. Kennedy characterized politics as “a noble calling,” to today, when the nation’s political system is routinely described as “dysfunctional” and the political atmosphere in Washington and Augusta as “poisonous.”

Competition and cooperation co-exist in all healthy systems, side by side and sometimes cheek-by-jowel, to advance the system’s purposes. Whether it is a forest ecosystem, the human body, a large bureaucracy, or an economic system, its elements compete for resources to meet their own needs, even as they act to contribute to the survival and persistence of the system itself.  Somewhere along the way from the 1960s, the U.S. political system lost sight of this important principle, threatening its public credibility, trust, and purposes.

Each speaker in the series will address these timely and important questions:

  • How was politics “played” in earlier times in Maine and the nation?  And, how has that changed today?
  • How did this come about? What are the implications for the state and the nation of our continuing along this path? And, what will it take to change course?
  • What does Maine have to offer the nation in this regard, based on our experience here?
