Journal of Engineering
and Public Policy
The Journal of
Engineering and Public Policy is an open access
publication which provides a compendium of research
papers prepared by engineering and computer science students participating in the annual
Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE).
WISE papers are published here in a journal format for purposes of public
information and to promote discussion on important issues related to technology and public
policy. Papers are not peer reviewed or edited in the traditional
sense, although they have been developed with guidance from the
individual WISE sponsors and under the supervision of the WISE
Faculty-Member-in-Residence. The conclusions, recommendations and opinions expressed in the papers are
those of the authors and not necessarily shared by the engineering societies who sponsored
the WISE Intern.
Authors retain all rights to their papers, except where assigned to the
sponsoring society or as otherwise noted in the paper. The WISE Program is authorized to disseminate these papers for
the purposes stated. Individuals may copy and distribute papers for their own personal use
subject to any restrictions imposed or rights retained by their
