The 2018 student winners of the Imagineering Competition hope to use wind produced by high-speed traffic to remove the uncertainty of weather in capturing wind power.
Professor Christos Cassandras (ECE, SE) was invited to be one of three guest editors on the April 2018 issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE on smart cities; he also co-authored one of the papers along with Professor Ioannis Paschalidis (ECE, BME, SE), who co-authored two.
Professor Enrico Bellotti (ECE, MSE) is the principal investigator of a new $1.25 million interdisciplinary center that will work with collaborators from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, industry and academia to develop new simulation and design methodologies for semiconductor materials and devices.
When engineering students learn early how to design a solution—whether it’s a new medical device or a streamlined warehouse design—and take into account factors like sustainability and commercialization, solutions can become innovations.

There have been few cancer treatments with such a promising future as using the patient’s own immune system. Known as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, or CAR-T, this treatment uses re-engineered killer T-cells to attack cancer cells, but it also causes potentially deadly side effects. Now, research led by Assistant Professor Wilson Wong (BME) is opening doors to making such therapy safer and more effective.
A new microchip technology capable of optically transferring data could solve a severe bottleneck in current devices to speed data transfer and reduce energy consumption by orders of magnitude.
Professor Paul Barbone (ME, MSE) and Professor W. Clem Karl (ECE, SE) have been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows.
Assistant Professor Wilson Wong (BME) is the 2018 recipient of the ACS Synthetic Biology Young Investigator Award.
