U of I Engineering Students Take Fourth Place in WEFTEC2018
September 30, 2018
An interdisciplinary team of College of Engineering students took fourth place in the student design competition at the national Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC). WEFTEC is the largest event of its kind in North America, and just 14 teams from across the world were selected to compete. The Moscow team comprised of civil engineering seniors Kirsten Dolph and Nicole Tompkins, civil engineering graduate student Casey Bryant, and electrical engineering student Kenny Sheffler. The team's project consisted of a feasibility study to explore the possibility of adding anaerobic digestion, or the breaking down of biodegradable materials without oxygen, to the City of Moscow's wastewater treatment facility.
