The ME Senior Design Project titled "A Dynamic Test Stand" sponsored by Whirlpool Corporation earned first place in the International category at the Second International Student Capstone Design Fair at the Seoul National University of Technology (SNUT), Korea, in November 2006. The team members were Jeff Van Karsen, Karen Hauch, Brad Rush, Kelly Willett, and Richard Bellenbaum. Jeff Van Karsen and Dr. John Gershenson represented the team and department at the competition. Both met briefly with the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Energy and Jeff was interviewed for Korean television. The faculty advisor for the senior design project was Dr. Nels Christopherson.

The fair had 313 entries with 10 international universities invited form the U.S., Singapore, China, and Japan. Dr. Gershenson was asked to organize and select most of the U.S. entries and his role will expand at next year's competition. Dr. Peck Cho, who is on leave at SNUT, did much of the original liaison work for the event. This is the second straight year that a MEEM Senior Design team has been asked to exhibit at the Fair.
