Abstract

During the summer of 2000, Koch Pavement Solutions and Rose-Hulman collaborated to provide ten students with the opportunity to work on five different projects. The collaboration came about because Koch had projects that they wanted to see completed and Rose-Hulman had a Lilly grant that was to encourage students working on industrial projects. Rose-Hulman paid the student salaries. This, initially, made it seem like a free worker situation for Koch Pavement Solutions, but they spent about an equal amount of money supporting the students. The summer was a great success. The students worked hard and produced excellent results. All five projects reached a satisfactory conclusion. The projects all pertained to the asphalt highway industry although some were more civil engineering oriented and others were more mechanical engineering oriented. In three cases a civil engineering student worked with a mechanical engineering student. The projects and the enthusiasm of the students brought an atmosphere of excitement to the workplace at Koch.
