Congratulations to 2022 UR Next Gen Challenge Winners

December 19, 2022

UR Next Gen Challenge is a think-tank style competition that gives students the chance to solve real-world problems with real-world engineers and scientists working alongside real-world industry representatives. The one-day think tank, sponsored by the MS in Technical Entrepreneurship and Management Program and the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, posed a real industry challenge. The students worked with company partner D3 Engineering to find an automated solution that minimizes setup and take down times when focusing camera lens variants without sacrificing consistency and quality.

Congratulations to this year’s winners:

  • Abdullah Abuomar ’22 of biomedical engineering, now a master’s student in our CMTI medical device master’s program.
  • Qinqin Xiao, a Warner School doctoral student with an advanced certificate in data science.
  • Wuxiucheng Wang, an electrical engineering PhD student advised by Hui Wu.
  • Tianyi Wang ’26 of computer science.
