Headline: From IUPUI to D.C.

Senior Kellen Knowles, one of IUPUI's "Top 100 Students" last spring, flew to Washington, D.C. this fall to be part of an American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) photo shoot promoting the organization's new "Engineering Go For It" Web site.

Knowles, a biomedical engineering major in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, is a Bepko Scholar and has been a regular on the dean's list throughout his IUPUI career.

The native of Jamaica — one of the campus's record number of international students — has taken full advantage of IUPUI's growing interdisciplinary nature, working as an undergraduate in numerous research projects under the guidance of Dr. Jack Windsor of the IU School of Dentistry.

Dentistry is one of the fields that Knowles considered as a career path, and one of many compatible with the biomedical engineering program.
