This is a big week for International STUDENT-athlete from Torino, Italy – the 2021 Mountain West Conference Cross Country Champion Dario De Caro. He’ll be competing in the NCAA national championships this week, along with fellow Boise State Cross Country-Track Broncos Ahmed Ibrahim and Logan Rees.

De Caro is pursuing a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering. He credits international travel and learning experiences for broadening his perspective on how people around the world approach everyday challenges and work toward the best solutions, something he says aids him in studying, research, training and sport.

Q - What was your first international education experience?
A - I spent 5 months in Madrid, Spain during my last year of bachelor's degree.

Q - How has your international education experience impacted your personal life?
A - Travelling and meeting new cultures helped me to break a lot of personal mental barriers and to realize that the world is full of opportunities.

Q - If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
A - I would like to go to Kenya where the best runners in the world come from and share their lifestyle.

Q - What is your favorite food?
A - Pasta.

Q - In your mother language, what is one of your favorite inspirational quotes or sayings, and what is the translation?
A - “Da quando ho imparato a camminare, mi piace correre", that means "Since I learned to walk, I like to run.” I think it represents me best both as an athlete and my character in general.

Good luck to Dario and all of our Broncos competing in the NCAA Nationals on Saturday, Nov. 20 in Tallahassee, FL

International Education Week (IEW), November 15-19, 2021, is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences. Boise State University welcomes you to participate in and celebrate global learning opportunities!

Repost NASA JSC Students: Braden Robinson, a senior Mechanical Engineering student at Boise State University, supports the testing and evaluation of the Portable Air Backpack (shown in last picture) for suited testing of the Z-2 Space Suit, as well as working on test fixturing and equipment for characterizing wear on the xEMU shoulder joints. Braden is also processing data from previous suited tests in order to quantify the stresses and impacts that pressurization and operation have on the suit.

Follow Boise State Microgravity to learn more about how Braden and fellow Broncos work with NASA to design and build tools that address a current space exploration challenge, and check out Boise State College of Innovation + Design's VIP courses to get involved.

Know someone who would like to be part of the MBE team? We're looking for an energetic person who is committed to educating the next generation of engineers. With a new curriculum and state-of-the-art equipment, we want our students to enter the workforce ready to take on the challenges ahead. Please share this with people who you think might fit this mission.
Krishna Pakala, an assistant professor in the Boise State Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering Department was named a “Fierce Educator” by Fierce Education.

An excerpt from Pakala’s award page reads: “As the world shut down in March 2020, Dr. Krishna Pakala became the “Professor of the Pandemic," utilized the far-reaching capabilities of digital technology to continue his students’ learning seamlessly. He used the functionalities provided by commonly used social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook to reach out and maintain human connections. The broader goal was to embrace digital togetherness to bridge the gaps caused by social distancing.”

To read more about Pakala’a award and accomplishments, visit: https://www.fierceeducation.com/administration/fierce-educator-dr-krishna-pakala

Fierce Education is recognizing those administrators, faculty, instructors, professors, and other higher education influencers who are boldly embracing innovative ways of teaching, technologies and methods to engage and reach students during these challenging times. They are the “Fierce Educators” who are rethinking higher education in this new blended learning world and we will be highlighting their successes and accomplishments.”

Congratulations, Dr. Pakala!
You've completed a rough semester. Take time to relax, enjoy your break, and regain your strength and perspective. We'll see you next year!
Even though commencement is going to look different for you, the achievement is still the same. Congratulations, Alvaro!
