MSE Thinkers, Doers and Creators Bear Down!
Bird's Eye View, and More
Dylan Taylor, who graduated from MSE in 1993, became one of the few humans to ever experience space aboard a Blue Origin flight.Getting the education I did at the UA and having that technical foundation helped me build a career… which allowed me to have a significant role in the space industry and ultimately allowed me to be on the flight.
Saving Lives with Copper
Adam Estelle, BS 2008, is working as a product engineer at Copper Development Association, where researchers have developed a type of copper alloy that kills bacteria, fungi and viruses and could help stop the spread of diseases in hospitals.The most rewarding thing for me is the ability to work on a project centered on a technology that will save lives.
Promoting Universal Eye Care
After graduation, Andy Doraiswamy, MS 2003, volunteered at a free eye clinic in a remote village in Nepal. He went on to found the startup Oculeve, which develops devices for dry eye treatment, and serve on the board of Surgical Eye Expeditions International. He served as the keynote speaker at the 2017 UA Engineering Homecoming.I knew nothing about health care, but I knew this blindness could be prevented.
Carrying Forward Collaborative Spirit
Stefan Bringuier, who earned his master’s degree and PhD in materials science engineering at the University of Arizona, is a materials scientist at Magnetic Fusion Energy in San Diego.My passion for materials science and engineering runs deep, but I am also seriously invested in the engagement, collaboration and building of productive relationships with other scientists and engineers.
