Ms. Amy Ewing

Awarded $2,500 on 1/11/2007

Amy Ewing is a graduate student at the University of Michigan, working toward an M.S.E. in biomedical engineering with a concentration in biomechanics. She also did her undergraduate work at Michigan—graduating with a 3.9 GPA—and will obtain her M.S.E in May of 2007. Much of the work she did as an intern at GM’s Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness Integration Department in Warren involved analyzing test dummy data and kinematics to determine vehicle interior contacts for specific vehicle crashes. This information was then used to assess proposed design changes to the interior of the vehicle. Amy also worked for an accident reconstruction company reconstructing vehicle crashes. Amy’s special interest at school has been safety engineering and the junction of biomechanics and vehicle design. Outside of class, Amy is a member of the Biomedical Engineering Society and the Society of Women Engineers. She has also mentored female freshman engineering students and is active in her church.
