The 2018 Winter Olympics are here! From earning Olympic gold in bobsledding in 2010 to shaping research, Dr. Curt Tomasevicz has discovered a world of opportunity at Nebraska.

“I get more nervous standing in front of a class than I ever did standing at the start of a bobsled run,” Tomasevicz said. “But watching students grow and succeed through the semester is a very rewarding process. Honestly, I can’t say there is much more from a job or career I could ask for. And getting... to say that while I work here at Nebraska is just icing on the cake.”

Dr. Curt Tomasevicz earned his PhD in Biological Engineering this past December from the BSE Department.

This month we would like to highlight a recent graduate (as of December 2017) from Mechanized Systems Management (MSYM): Turner Hagen.

When reflecting on his time at UNL, Turner Hagen notes, “I really enjoyed the variety of classes in the BSE Department. From learning about sizing a fan for a grain bin, to basic electrical circuits, all the way up to programing CAN bus systems, it truly made my time enjoyable! I also enjoyed all my fellow students and faculty in the departmen...t, they made me feel at home.” During his time at UNL, Turner’s favorite class was AGEN 492 where he was able to make an engine controller that controlled a John Deere diesel engine as part of a group project.

Outside of the classroom, Turner Hagen was a part of MSYM Club, involved in the 1/4 Scale Tractor team, and worked at the Tractor Test Laboratory all four years of his undergraduate career.

After graduating, Turner Hagen has accepted a job with CLAAS of America as a Technical Service Representative based out of Omaha, NE. His advice to future/prospective students: “Take advantage of all the knowledge and experience the faculty have!”

Welcome back, Huskers!

Meet Dr. Jenny Keshwani, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering and Science Literacy Specialist through Extension. She teaches an undergraduate class while her main focus is promoting science/engineering education in both various settings through her research/extension activities.

What she loves most about her educational setting is “the privilege of working with learners across the spectrum – from elementary students... to college students to professional educators.” She notes that one of the most challenging part of her job is having to “say no to opportunities and only choose those that are most meaningful. I could easily spend all of my time working on outreach programs, or visiting educators across the state, or preparing for classes, or meeting with students, or many other valuable opportunities.”

Outside of work, Dr. Keshwani enjoys “Anything I can do to build community and develop real authentic relationships. I also play piano for a band at my church and enjoy spending time outside.” We’re so thankful have such a passionate member of our Department and everything you do, Dr. Keshwani!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering and Science Literacy Specialist through Extension. I’m also the coordinator for the National Center for Agricultural Literacy. I teach undergraduate courses in biomedical engineering and engineering properties. However...

Meet the UNL student branch of The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE)! ASABE is a student organization providing students who are interested in agriculture and biological engineering the opportunity to interact with other students in the department, network with the outside industry, and attend conferences with the national professional society.

Meetings usually include a guest speaker from the industry, information on upcoming events, and annou...ncements from other officers. Food is provided to hungry ASABE members at every meeting!

A few of the ASABE student section members attended the Nebraska Section Meeting on October 20th here on East Campus. The organization will also be sending several members to the Ag. Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) and National Farm Machinery Show this spring in Louisville, KY. Student from ASABE attend AETC every year and always learn a lot and have a blast!

ASABE President Anna Siebe was asked what this organization has done for her and what is has to offer others:

“This organization has influenced my leadership abilities and networking skills. ASABE provides many opportunities for students to network with industry professionals as well as learn about the professional society. There are also unique opportunities for our student members to become familiar with the industry and begin making connections and contacts which will last throughout their careers.”
