JasonChemical Engineering Senior Jason Castaneda recieved a Waldo-Cummings Oustanding Student Award for outstanding academic achievement this school year. To be considered for this prestigious award, students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above and demonstrate extracurricular leadership and engagement.

During his time at OSU, Jason conducted research with HC Dean Toni Doolen at Boeing. He interviewed industrial engineer project managers and analyzed the planning and risks associated with project development. Their paper, “A Study of the Impact of Project Classification on Project Risk Management” was published in the International Journal of Project Management this May. A second paper is due for publication later this year.

For his thesis, set to be completed this fall, Jason worked with Dr. Courtney Campbell and interviewed physicians to gain an understanding of the trust and dynamics of patient-physician relationships. He plans to pursue medical school after graduation.

Outside the classroom Jason connected to the greater OSU community through extracurricular activities. He was involved in the men’s club soccer team and participated in Dr. Kevin Ahern’s STEM Leaders Program, gaining lasting friendships and creating a well rounded college experience. “I wanted to make the most of my time at OSU,” Jason says.
