June 21, 2020

Bethany Worl graduated from Purdue Northwest in December 2019 with a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering.  She completed the thesis option of the program, and the title of her thesis was “Modeling of Scale Formation and the Use of Oxygen Enrichment in a 3D CFD Industrial Furnace Model.”  In January of 2020, Bethany began working in the plate mills of ArcelorMittal Burns Harbor as an Associate Process Automation Engineer.  She works on the furnace side of the plate mills to improve and maintain the furnace models, and the process automation associated with them.  Bethany said, “CIVS not only gave me work experience working with industrial professionals, but also help me gain knowledge on steel mill processes that directly impact the work I do today. My own graduate studies focus on furnace modeling has helped me to understand the level-2 models I currently work with.”
