First place in the Northwest Innovation Resource Center’s Amazon Catalyst Competition
Associate Professor Pietro Paparella and Professor Pierre Mourad were awarded first place in the Northwest Innovation Resource Center’s Amazon Catalyst Competition in the city of Everett. The purpose of the competition was “to discover and reward big ideas to residents in the city of Everett with healthcare solutions for products, services and processes that focus on healthcare issues.” Pietro and Pierre’s innovative idea was to develop a “smart” asthma inhaler. They plan to work with a UW Bothell interdisciplinary undergraduate capstone group to build a prototype using their prize money ($5,000) to pay for materials. View details on this competition and descriptions of the winning innovative ideas.
Meet the Mechanical Engineering Lab Manager, Jacob Roth
Jacob Roth is a recent graduate of the University of Washington mechanical engineering master's program, where he studied additive manufacturing systems with Professor Mark Ganter. While studying biophysics at Harvey Mudd College, he became interested in biomimetic engineering solutions and developed new types of 3D printed nonlinear springs. Outside of work, he is an avid board gamer and builds custom mechanical keyboards.
Class of 2020 ME Capstone Day
June 17, 2020
The ME program at UW Bothell is honoring the hard work and perseverance of our students, who have conducted their projects remotely during a very challenging quarter, amidst a global pandemic, an economic crisis, and the recent and widespread protest against racial inequities.
Last week a group of students, along with their faculty advisors, took a moment to celebrate the completion of their projects over Zoom and a beverage. A link to the student projects can be found below.
Congratulations ME students for all your accomplishments through this extremely difficult time!
Mechanical Engineering Student Named to 2020 Husky 100
May 5, 2020
UW Bothell Mechanical Engineering student, Nicholas Degrasse, has been selected to the Husky 100 Class of 2020. The Husky 100 recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students from three campuses in all areas of study who are making the most of their time at the UW.
Nicholas comments, “Design, create and reiterate is a three-step process I’ve come to fall in love with in my time as an engineer at UW, where I’ve brought ingenuity and passion to everything I do. I’ve had the opportunity to bring ideas to life and create medical devices to serve the needs of others. My Husky Experience has taught me to be a leader, how to bring the most out of myself and those around me, and how I can use what I’ve learned to save and improve lives”.
The Husky 100 actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future. Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.

We, the officers of the UW Bothell chapter of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), believe networking to be the top priority of our club. In consideration of this, we have invited local industry representatives to participate in a panel on our campus. The topic of discussion will be internships, the needs of the panelists, advice that can aid students pursuing internships, and advice on how our students can take full advantage of an internship.
Please come prepared with a reviewed Resume / CV. There will be an opportunity after the panel to meet with company representatives for one on one questions and resume review. I would also suggest having your elevator pitch ready to go. Please contact the UWB Career Center for assistance getting prepared for Internship Season.
Our club officers have donated their membership refunds in order to provide refreshments for attendees. All attendees will be asked to consider joining our professional society so we can continue to provide these opportunities.
