Rice Owl Mentors Eating Out
Romeo Quarterly Luncheon Friday July 20, 2012
Speaker – Dr. Sarah M. Whiting
Dean, School of Architecture, Rice University

“Architecture, the most public of the arts, manifests our history and shapes our future. The RSA is a think tank: a container for possibilities. Faced with global economic, political, and environmental crises, we can’t afford to be passive.”

ROMEO Luncheon Friday October 21, 2011

Our ROMEO luncheon speaker will be Prof. Maria Oden, Ph. D., Director of the Rice Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen.

Maria Oden has more than 15 years of combined academic, research, clinical experience in biomedical engineering with an emphasis in orthopaedic bioemechanics and computational modeling. This work is also supported by three years of experience in computational modeling working with engineering consultants at Sage-Crisp Engineering in Houston, TX.

Since joining the Department of Bioengineering as a lecturer and laboratory coordinator in 2004, Oden has collaborated with Rice faculty members to develop capstone engineering design programs for undergraduate students in both the bioengineering and  Beyond Traditional Borders (BTB) programs. She has also developed several core undergraduate laboratory courses where she emphasizes open-ended problem solving as part of the laboratory exercises.

As director of Rice’s Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen, an appointment received in 2008, Oden orchestrates engineering education initiatives in the school of engineering that provide students from multiple departments in the George R. Brown School of Engineering, Wiess School of Natural Sciences, and the School of Humanities with unique hands-on design experience and opportunities to test and carry ideas to their intended point of application.

The Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen (OEDK) provides a space for undergraduate students majoring in bioengineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, civil and environmental engineering, computational and applied mathematics, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering and material science, and statistics to design, prototype and deploy solutions to real-world engineering challenges. To create the full circle of real-world experience that has societal impact, the George R. Brown School of Engineering plans to extend the opportunity to study design to students in humanities, social sciences, architecture and business.

By working in close proximity to engineers in all disciplines, our students develop multiple perspectives on how to pursue a project. The OEDK is a 12,000-square-foot space, which includes not only the central work area but also conference rooms, a classroom, a wet lab, a machine shop and a welding shop . The presence of large engineering firms, such as National Instruments and Texas Instruments allows engineers to become experienced with the products they will be using once they enter the workforce.
