From the Chairs
Welcome to the 2009 Engineering Graduate Symposium!

The Engineering Graduate Symposium is an on-campus, one-day
conference designed to aid current and prospective students in
developing a spirit of innovation and collaboration as well as honing
their communication and research presentation skills. Since its
inception in 2000 by the Mechanical Engineering Department, the
Symposium has been highly instrumental in enabling graduate
students at all stages to share their research, check out their peers'
research, and network with other graduate students. In 2006, the
Symposium underwent a remarkable expansion to encompass all the
departments of the College of Engineering!

The motto behind the Engineering Graduate Symposium is "for the
students, by the students." Students participate in either a poster
session, oral presentation, or both. The Symposium also offers
volunteers a great chance to develop leadership skills and network
with people from around the College and beyond.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers,
faculty and staff who have assisted with various facets of the
Symposium. We would also like to thank our generous sponsors
who made this event possible. Special mention must be made here
of the Office of Graduate Education for their immense assistance
and encouragement. Last but not least, we would like to thank you
for your role in the Symposium!

As an enumeration, the Engineering Graduate Symposium with its
friendly environment and interdisciplinary collaboration offers an
ideal setting to share time and talent. We hope that you too shall
make the best possible use of this opportunity to "communicate,
innovate and collaborate"!

                      electricity generation and supply. The consequences of
                      increased renewable generation and widespread
                      adoption of plug-in electric vehicles will be explored,
                      while reviewing the strategies for which the grid will be
                      integrated into our world.
