College of Engineering and Science Graduate Student Council
Welcome to the College of Engineering and Science Graduate Student Council
The College of Engineering and Science Graduate Student Council (COES GSC) serves as an official representative body for the current graduate students at the College of Engineering and Science, Louisiana Tech University. The council consists of a representative structure of elected members from the graduate student body. GSC seeks to organize events such as academic seminars, workshops, and competitions to support scholarly activities as well as assist graduate students in their graduate and post-graduate work. GSC also aims to create better communication among the students of diverse COES graduate programs with meaningful cultural and recreational events.

CAM student Wenjing Xu prepares for graduation
Computational Analysis and Modeling (CAM) student Wenjing Xu prepares to graduate after successfully defending his dissertation. Wenjing’s research focus has been on GPU performance, and he developed a framework for a model that estimates GPU performance and can be applied in many important applications such as medical image analysis, security, and artificial intelligence. Wenjing conducted a study to improve GPU performance by estimating the suitable number of threads per block, developed a novel method to elevate the limitation of the GPU, and developed two parallel computing abstract models.
2021-22 COES Graduate Council elected
Louisiana Tech University’s College of Engineering and Science (COES) graduate students have elected the 2021-22 COES Graduate Council. During the election, held on March 22, Md Tanbin Hasan Mondal (doctoral student in engineering with a concentration in micro/nanoscale systems), was elected president of the council, while Winner Anigbogu (doctoral student in engineering with a concentration in micro/nanoscale systems) was elected vice president. Rifat-E-Nur Hossain (doctoral student in engineering with a concentration in micro/nanoscale systems) was elected public relations officer, and MD Shafayet Alam (doctoral student in engineering with a concentration in micro/nanoscale systems) was elected secretary. Omar Shahrear Apu (doctoral student in engineering with a concentration in materials and infrastructure systems) was elected treasurer.
Physics program provides local high school students with international masterclass
Louisiana Tech University’s Physics program recently concluded an International Masterclass in Hands-On Particle Physics for local high school students. Louisiana Tech Physics professor and director of Chemistry and Physics Dr. Lee Sawyer and Physics Ph.D. student Zahra Farazpay worked with West Monroe High School physics teacher, Laura Duke, to provide a guided particle physics project to 10 of her students.
Through the program, Gibson Buxton (junior), Logan Coker (junior), Madeline Hawthorne (senior), Nathan Mitchell (senior), Eli Norman (junior), Mason Parker (junior), Sarah Roberts (junior), Aidan Warner (senior), Bryce Waters (junior), and Blake Woody (junior) completed hands-on research, compiled data, and presented the data to researchers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
