January 18, 2011View for printing

A Montana State University electrical and computer engineering professor who received an elite fellowship from Boeing shared his experience with MSU students and faculty this fall and incorporated them into his curriculum.

Ross Snider was one of nine people to receive a 2010 Boeing Welliver Faculty Fellowship from an international pool and the first MSU recipient ever. The fellowship allowed him to shadow Boeing professionals and observe Boeing operations for eight weeks last summer. Snider spent two weeks at the Boeing Leadership Center in Missouri and six weeks at various Boeing facilities in Seattle.

MSU student wins first place in a national science and engineering competition

A Montana State University student who grew up on a ranch between Cutback and Browning beat out students from across the country to win first place in a national science and engineering competition recently.

Jordan Kennedy, a mechanical engineering sophomore, won first in both the oral and poster presentation at the National American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) conference in Albuquerque in November.

"It's very rare for a student to win both national awards," said Marjorie Old Horn, director of American Indian Research Opportunities (AIRO) at MSU.
