Seniors in the department will have a chance to show off their projects.
Four doctoral students have been selected to be a part of the 2016 National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
Joel Bailey, Howard Chambers, and Kimberly Greene were recently inducted into the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering Hall of Fame.
Butch Irick, a research assistant professor of mechanical engineering, has been in the driver’s seat as hybrid vehicle technology has moved from experimental to commonplace. Chuck Melcher, director of the Scintillation Materials Research Center, is conducting research that has applications in fighting both terrorism and cancer.
Scott Kelly recently took time to answer questions from space via Tumblr.
Scott Kelly got in on some Tonight Show fun and became a Twitter sensation over the weekend.
Astronaut Scott Kelly is no stranger to stardom, having rocketed to fame as the first American to spend a year in space. In fact, by the time he returns to Earth in March, he will have spent more than 500 days total in orbit, a record for any American and trailing only a small number
Smithsonian, the official magazine of the Smithsonian Institution, recently had a prominent spot for UT’s SynDaver “Mabeline” in its story on the rising use of artificial cadavers at medical schools. Unlike most places, Mabeline—so named because of her housing in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering, or MABE—is used in engineering classes.
UT’s Center for Transportation Research has selected three faculty members from the College of Engineering, one from the Department of Economics and one from the Haslam College of Business as part of its 2015 Fellows class.
UT aerospace engineering senior Michael Holloway has been named a Tau Beta Pi laureate for 2015, one of just five students so honored across the United States this year.
With a history dating back more than 175 years, the College of Engineering is no stranger to bringing new ideas and concepts to all of its students and visitors. What makes a current group of college visitors somewhat different is that they are faculty from another university—Southeast University in China.
The role of the College of Engineering in studying advanced materials recently got a major boost with the National Science Foundation backing UT to join the Manufacturing and Materials Joining Innovation Center. Claudia Rawn, director of the Center for Materials Processing, will lead the university’s efforts.
