3 GLOBALCHANGE Aggies in Norway Mechanical engineering students Jeremy Epps and Danielle McPherson travel with Dr. Samuel Ofori, chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering to the University of Stavanger in Norway during spring break. when Mechanical Engineering student, Kia Young made the decision to study abroad for a semester, she knew she would need help convincing her parents. A Texas native, Young said she wanted to have the experience of going abroad to help her to A Journey through Thailand grow as a person. After researching several study abroad opportunities, Young initially settled on Hong Kong, but later learned the university had by Terri Godwin completed admission of its exchange students. Study abroad coordinator, Allegra Laing asked Young to consider South Korea or Thailand. After talking it over with her parents, Young decided on Bangkok, Thailand. When she arrived in Thailand, Young immediately connected with students from around the world including Hong Kong, South Korea and China. During her first few days, she enrolled in an eight-hour language course and was assigned a Thai Buddy to help her learn the native language. She studied at Thammasat University taking four courses in fluid mechanics, circuits, mat lab, and organizational behavior. The students from Thailand were very similar to my American Peers, said Young. Ruled by a Monarchy government, the Thailand countryside is very different from America with a fascinating and diverse culture. Tropical jungles, sandy beaches, rain forests, wildlife sanctuaries and Buddhist temples surround the mountainous region, said Young. Young s mother traveled to Thailand from Texas to visit her. While there, the two worked as volunteers in Thailand s Elephant Sanctuary where they helped with feeding, bathing and walking the domesticated mammals one of the highlights of her trip, Young says. KNUST Delegation Visit from Ghana The delegation of dignitaries from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana traveled to the U.S. to visit N.C. A&T s College of Engineering. During the one-day visit, The vice chancellor of KNUST, Professor William O. Ellis and members of the delegation met with administrators, engineering students and alumni from Ghana. Kia gets a lesson in Buddhism while visiting with a Buddhist monk in Thailand From learning new languages to traveling abroad this experience has inspired me to travel more and experience other cultures.

The article will be published in the spring edition of IEEE Pervasive Computing Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems Magazine. IEEE Pervasive Computing explores pervasive and ubiquitous computing with research articles, case studies, product reviews, conference reports, departments covering wearable and mobile technologies, and more. Graves and electrical engineering graduate student, Shelby Kilgore also published an article titled: Processing Pre-Existing Connect-the-Dots Puzzles for Educational Repurposing Applications to be published in the March 2015 Edition of Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications. In the article, Graves and Kilgore present their findings by testing an algorithm used in processing connect-the-dots puzzles. In particular, the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and other image processing algorithms used to analyze preexisting connect-the-dots puzzles is explored. The algorithm developed utilizes Matlab and C# to locate and identify numbers in the puzzles. To test accuracy of the algorithm, an experiment was conducted using 20 hand selected puzzles from an online source. The function of the algorithm used was evaluated by visually capturing design of the puzzles, and comparing the results generated by the algorithm. Findings of the research reveal that the algorithm has great accuracy with the implementation of a few minor adjustments. The proposed research will aid in the development of an application that will provide educational benefits to children in an emergent technological world.
