Retired College of Engineering Director of Pre-Admissions and Registration Receives Outstanding Service Award

Diane Buhr, retired Director of Pre-Admissions and Registration from the College of Engineering has been honored by the Junior Engineering Technical Society for her dedication to the JETS program.

"Diane serves as a superb role model for professionals who aspire to get children interested in careers in science, engineering and technology," wrote JETS Executive Director Leann Yoder in a letter to UC. Engineering Interim Dean Roy Eckart presented Buhr with the award.

"Diane Buhr receives recognition award from the JETS/TEAMS for 18 years of dedicated service to this high-school academic contest," noted Eckart.

JETS is a 50-year-old nonprofit organization that promotes high-school interest nationwide in engineering, science, mathematics and technology. JETS programs aim at getting students involved with engineering and preparing for future careers while still in high school. 
The JETS “TEAMS” competition (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science) is a one-day, two-part academic exam with awards and recognition possible at the local, state and national levels. Teams of four to eight students compete in an open-book, open-note, open discussion that encourages students to think critically. The questions posed represent college freshman-level engineering coursework.

UC’s JETS-TEAMS competition will take place February 24, 2005, from 8:00 a.m. until 3 p.m., with 50 to 60 area high schools competing. For additional information please phone (513) 556-5417 or e-mail

Katelin “Katie” Weitzel was first drawn to the University of Cincinnati by the esteemed College of Engineering and Applied Science, but her decision was solidified by the groundbreaking work of Dr. Dionysios Dionysiou in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Weitzel’s interest in water treatment came from growing up in Michigan and witnessing firsthand the impact of a water crisis. During her time at UC she has been awarded the Rindsberg Fellowship, a Graduate Student Award in Environmental Chemistry, and recently was named Graduate Student Engineer of the Month by CEAS.
