Engineering student's research featured in industry publication

When Kyle Bear applied to the Engineering program at Penn State DuBois, he never imagined he may help to influence an entire industry. The U.S. Army veteran, originally from Chelsea, Michigan, sought out the program in order to launch a second career after his service in the armed forces. He got more than he planned for already, however. While still a sophomore Bear co-authored an article on research he is conducting with a faculty member, and his work is getting international attention.
