Co-Op Honoree, Scholar Athlete, & Army Veteran

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Cooperative & Experiential Education Division (CEED) recently announced the 2014 CEED award winners. Howard Haotian Wang, PA L 2013, was recognized with the Co-op of the Year Award for his four co-op rotations with Lubrizol (OH). He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2013 with a degree in chemical engineering from the Swanson School of Engineering.

Read about Wang’s co-op experiences here and find an image of him with the other 2014 CEED award winners in the summer 2014 issue of the Prism. He is currently pursuing a master’s in engineering from Georgia Tech.


The California Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, at Stanford University, recently held a spring initiation ceremony. Benjamin G. Rhyne, CA G 2014, was among the class of new members initiated earlier this month. He will graduate with a degree in biomechanical engineering in June, but will return to Stanford to attend graduate school and continue to play for the varsity football team.

In 2013, Rhyne was named the Pac-12 football Scholar-Athlete of the Year, ranked fourth in average punting yards, and maintained a 3.88 GPA. Click here for his athletic bio from Stanford


Daniel S. Goodrick, UT A ’08, was recently profiled by ABC News for his role in “making flying safer.” Goodrick is a research instrumentation engineer at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in California. His job entails making flying safer for pilots and passengers by “designing systems to collect, transmit and store data for researchers.”

“I make sure that planes fly the way they’re supposed to,” he says. “This is very exciting for me as an engineer and researcher to feel like I’m improving things for the next generation of pilots and air passengers.” Read the article for more biographical information on Goodrick, including information about his seven years in the Army and his deployments in Iraq and Qatar.
