Professor Beth Ferguson Receives Grant from VentureWell
Professor Beth Ferguson recently received a VentureWell Faculty Grant in recognition of their commitment to inclusive support of students who are creating innovations for positive social and environmental impact. This funding will support a new Industrial Design course series that will create an inviting and supportive atmosphere for underrepresented engineering and design students to learn digital fabrication concepts through the Design Department’s new Design Makerspace. Professor Katia Vega and Professor Jiayi Young from the Department of Design and Professor Barbara Sabine Linke from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering will also be supporting this UC Davis initiative.
VentureWell’s Faculty Grants program helps faculty and staff at institutions across the country develop or sustain courses and programs that encourage STEM innovation.
