TECH Talk by Berna Özkale on April 13 on 11am in MRDC 4211

Please join us for our next TECH Talk by Berna Özkale: Engineering Complex Materials for Nano- and Microrobotic Applications. This talk will cover the engineering of complex micro- and nano-materials and how electrodeposition can be used for this purpose. Several examples of corrosion resistive nanocoatings and nanomaterials with tunable magnetic properties will be presented. The advantages in utilizing electrodeposition and the challenges in the field will also be discussed.

Location: MRDC 4211

Date: Monday, April 13 at 11am

The Willpower Instinct

Book Discussion

Our next book discussion will be on The Willpower Instinct by Kelly McGonigal. Please contact our Social Chair if you plan to attend our discussion on April 9th.



WSGW is involved in a seminar series called TECH talks (Transporting Engineers Closer to Home). Our next TECH Talk is on Monday, April 13th, 2015. This seminar series will bring young, accomplished women in Mechanical Engineering to Georgia Tech to share their research and potentially foster new collaborations. We would like to thank the Woodruff School and Dr. Wepfer for their support of this project.



Each month we get together for coffee to catch up and take a break. It is a great way to discuss ideas, form new connections & perspectives, and relax. Our last Coffee Break was on Friday, February 27th, 2015 at Starbucks at Clough Commons. Hope to see you at the next one!
