SEAS Undergraduate Students visit Chile

August 20, 2017

Three undergraduate Columbia Engineering students --Temitope Akinade, Sofía Barbosa, and Lance Avery Murphy-- will participate in the "International Seminar for Engineering Leaders" (ISEL), to be held in Santiago on September 24-30. This major gathering, which is jointly organized by the students and faculty of   Universidad Católica’s School of Engineering, will bring together students from different universities throughout the world to discuss what each of them are doing in the areas of research, innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership.

The three Columbia students that will attend this event are doing their B.S. on Biomedical Engineering at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) Temitope is an undergraduate researcher at the Columbia Biomaterials & Interface Tissue Engineering Labwhile Sofia and Lance work as researcher at the Cellular Engineering Lab.

The ISEL project is born from the enthusiasm of Chilean students to create work and collaboration networks with many of the top universities worldwide. Specifically, the project establishes three main objectives: Get to know other school's representation, research and entrepreneurship initiatives; create and strengthen instances for collaboration and communication between students, faculty members, and staff from all universities involved; and promote cooperation among participating institutions for future research projects.
