Staying strong and resilient together
Exceptional times often bring out the best in exceptional people. Mason Engineering faculty, staff, students, and alumni have kept moving forward and are taking on the challenges that COVID-19 presents to the world.
Our faculty have conquered new research areas and adapted their long-term projects to help communities, from farmworkers to hospital personnel, fight the spread of COVID-19. They have rapidly formed collaborations with institutions like the World Bank, local Community Emergency Response Teams, and Johns Hopkins University so that they can quickly deploy real-time solutions.
Mason Engineering students are taking the change to virtual learning in stride. Senior design teams have used it as a learning opportunity, peer mentors have stepped up to fill in gaps, and student organizations are staying connected with their members. Students are also finding creative ways to volunteer their time to help health professionals and food banks.
The Mason Engineering community will continue to move forward and seek out new research areas and ways we can help in this pandemic.
