Undergraduate Researcher Wins First Place in Student Poster Competition at the Louis Stokes-South Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation

Industrial Engineering Senior Brianne' Flemming won first place in the state-wide undergraduate research poster competition at the Louis Stokes South Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation (LS-SCAMP) conference. Brianne's research entitled "Family Roles of Students in Engineering: A Qualitative investigation" was conducted through the LS-SCAMP summer research program under the mentorship of Dr. Julie Trenor and graduate student Denise Grant. Brianne' coded over 80 interview transcripts for family roles related to selecting and persisting in engineering and analyzed the data based on parental educational attainment. The research team is currently working on a manuscript for publication in an engineering education journal. Congratulations, Brianne'!
