Dagmawi Tilahun, CBEE, on the Value of Mentorship

2 May

UMBC student Dagmawi Tilahun, from the Department of Chemical, Biochemical, and Environmental Engineering, presents “Low Cost Incubator/Warmer/Cooler/Transporter Design for Neonates.” Tilahun and project partner Kevin Tran were featured in a Baltimore Sun article on URCAD, which explained that their research grew out of an assignment from professor Govind Rao on the use of sensors in chemical engineering.

As the project progressed, Rao’s mentorship became invaluable. Tilahun reflects in the article, “All you need to do is have some interest and the professors here are willing to work with you to get you going in that field.”
