Students Receive Honeywell Engineering Awards

July 11, 2011
U.S. and Venezuelan students recognized for designing engineering solutions using wireless and simulation technology.

Students from North America and South America pursuing degrees in technical fields at accredited colleges received awards from Honeywell for designing solutions that solve critical manufacturing plant issues in the process industries.

University of Pennsylvania students Miroslav Pajic and Harsh Jain were named winners in the wireless category for a proposal that focused on distributed controller grids and the next generation of robust wireless control and actuation. Pajic and Srinivas described the emerging trend of wireless sensor-actuator-controller networks as a single solution to monitor and operate automation systems to lower installation and maintenance costs.

In the simulation software category, Pedro Amer and Nahir Torres from the Universidad de Oriente Venezuela created a process simulation model of a high-pressure steam generation boiler. Amer and Torres demonstrated how simulation can train operators to evaluate different scenarios in production and designing processes offline.
