Return to Learn guidelines for the College of Engineering and  Computer Science, Arkansas State University

This document contains “Return to Learn” guidelines for students, faculty and staff in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and associated activities to conduct business of the college. Especially, some of these activities are unique to the college and this document is intended to address, in part, those activities. It is a living document and will be updated from time to time based on changes to institutional policies in response to the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Four engineering students among a seven-member winning team to run an experiment on the International Space Station in 2022

Seven Arkansas State students were part of a team that won funding along with four other teams at the national level to run experiments on the International Space Station in 2022. Part of the team were  four  engineering students - Benjamin Whitfield of Little Rock, an Electrical Engineering major and team leader; Landon Perdue of Brookland, Mason Rhodes of Benton, and Jacob Oster of Bay, who are mechanical engineering majors;. Dr. Ilwoo Seok, mechanical engineering professor, mentored the student team along with other faculty members. More information on the project can be found here.
