Launch Your Engineering Career Fall Kick-Off

Special Event

The Launch Your Engineering Career (LYEC) is hosting a keynote address by Dr. Rebecca Dupaix, “Life’s Best Adventures Happen When You’re Detoured”. Refreshments will be served. Enter a raffle to win a Nintendo Switch Lite, one of two $50 Visa gift cards, or College of Engineering Swag. Aggie Ice Cream vouchers will be given to the first 100 people.

Rebecca Dupaix is a Professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Ohio State University. She received her BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Utah State University in 1998 and MS and PhD degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2000 and 2003, respectively. Her research focuses on the mechanical behavior of polymers and soft biological tissues. She received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation in 2008 for her work to improve polymer manufacturing processes across multiple length scales. Her soft tissue work includes applications ranging from injury biomechanics to neural prosthesis design. Her success in the classroom has resulted in several teaching awards, most recently the Ohio State University Alumni Association’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2021. She enjoys teaching classes in statics, mechanics of materials, applied finite element analysis, and continuum mechanics.
