Individual Student Paper of the Year
– Stevens Institute of Technology
Team Student Paper of the Year – Stevens Institute of Technology
Two outstanding and extremely interesting papers from Stevens Institute
of Technology have been selected this year for the Student Paper of the
Year Award. The winners are Julia Steponanko as the Individual Student
Paper of the Year recipient and a team with Craig Edwards, Manoj Rana and
Bhavin Shukla for the Team Student Paper of the Year.
Most anyone driving on New Jersey roadways has experienced the frustration
of sitting in long lines of traffic waiting to make a turn, or just get through
an intersection at rush hour. Julia will present an analysis of a project
to develop a comprehensive traffic study to improve the safety and capacity
at a busy intersection in New Jersey. Current conditions as well as
projections of increased vehicular and pedestrian volumes were analyzed,
and recommendations were made for a suitable re-design to provide a safer
and more effective traffic pattern.
Bhavin, Craig, and Manoj will present an analysis of a project to
expand a large, multi-specialty medical group with an aim to increasing its
reach by providing additional non-invasive cancer therapies. As the
additional capability would require the purchase of expensive machinery,
numerous factors such as competitors, cost effectiveness, efficiency, and
patient safety were all considered.

The NJ PMO LCI Core
Team will have an informal Meet and Greet Networking Event prior to the monthly
