EWU's Brockmann receives national award recognition
Eastern Washington University student Paul Brockmann, a senior pursing his BS in mechanical engineering, has been named the next New Face of Engineering: College Edition for 2013 by a national building technology society.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) selected Brockmann for this national award and $1,000 scholarship. The award is part of a national recognition program led by the National Engineers Week Foundation which recognizes the best and brightest junior and senior engineering students by highlighting their academic success and student contributions to the industry and participating engineering society.
In honoring Brockmann, the society noted he spreads the word of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) by hosting presentations about new and upcoming HVAC technology, such as dedicated outdoor air systems and building automation systems controls. He also organized a tour of Eastern’s utility plant for other students to see the boilers and chillers.
Eligible students must be enrolled in a bachelor of science in engineering program from an ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) accredited school, such as EWU.
