KU graduate receives engineering award

A Kansas University student has been selected for this year's Outstanding Electrical Engineering Student Award from Eta Kappa Nu, the national honor society for electrical and computer engineering.

Shadab Mozaffar of Patna, India, who graduated Sunday, will travel in September to Los Angeles to receive the award.

Mozaffar plans to begin work on his master's degree in electrical engineering this fall at KU. He will be a research assistant at the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center.

KU students awarded German study grants

Two Kansas University students have received grants to study next year in Germany.

Brittany Lee of Derby, who recently graduated with a degree in chemistry, and Gordon Seeger, a Colorado Springs, Colo., doctoral student in Germanic languages and literature, received the grants.

The grants, provided by the German Academic Exchange Service, cover all expenses for an academic year of study.

Lee will study biochemistry and parasites that cause diseases in tropical countries while studying at the University of Heidelberg. Seeger will be affiliated with Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, Germany. He will study language use among the speakers of North Frisian, a minority German language.
