Robots with Care & Charisma
Lucky for you and me, that’s exactly what’s in store for us in the world of robotics, thanks in part to assistant professor Heather Knight and the CHARISMA lab at Oregon State University, where she and a team of students are developing robots that can not only interact with people effectively and efficiently, but add value to the workplace and other social spaces where ‘bots and humans can (and likely will) coexist.

SND: Zander Work
Working in cybersecurity rarely looks like the movies, said Oregon State University student Zander Work. “It’s usually not like that big scene in 'WarGames' (with banks of monitors in a command center),” said Work, the president of the OSU Security Club. “Usually, it’s more like, ‘we have a spike in network traffic, let’s see what it’s all about,’ and someone whips out a laptop.” Corvallis Gazette-Times

Engineering students display innovative senior projects
The Oregon State University College of Engineering has hosted the Undergraduate Engineering Expo for the past 19 years. The expo is meant to showcase the capstone senior project that all engineering seniors must complete before graduating. One multidisciplinary student project involves building, programming and testing a micro-helicopter, and is led by eight students, one being Erik Madison, a fourth-year studying electrical engineering. “I would say the biggest pro of working on a collaborative team like this is that it’s real-world. In the future when we’re in the industry we’ll be working in a large group most of the time,” Madison said. The Daily Barometer
