Video reveals the engineering feat that allows this research hub to carry out sensitive experiments despite proximity to the Mass Pike.
Over the next nine months, Joshua Semeter will study footage of unidentified flying objects to help figure out their origin.
Eric Kolaczyk Named New Director of BU’s Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering
“Data science and computing are now embedded in the human experience and informing everything we do,” CAS math professor says Eric Kolaczyk has earned an international reputation for his work across bioinformatics and computational neuroscience.

BU engineer recognized for his work in advancing diversity and inclusion in the field of computation Roscoe Giles, Boston University College of Engineering professor of electrical and computer engineering, has had a career marked by firsts. He was the first black student to earn a PhD in physics at Stanford University, he was the first […]
Students, faculty, staff get a chance to design and build their own ideas at EPIC When it opened in January 2014, BU’s Engineering Product Innovation Center—better known as EPIC—was hailed as an opportunity to not only transform BU’s engineering programs, but to provide a hub for all members of the BU community, regardless of major, […]
Jeffrey Geddes gets two federal research awards to examine impact on air quality Jeffrey Geddes uses remote sensing observations, computer modeling, and targeted field observations to study atmospheric chemistry and air quality.

Underrepresented voices in science offer unique perspectives Photo above provided by Jackie Ricciardi. SCIENCE, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO INVESTIGATE the entirety of the physical and natural world, is missing something. So is engineering. According to a report issued last year by the National Science Foundation (NSF), blacks and Hispanics are underrepresented both as recipients of […]
Change will prepare students for a digital and maker economy In new mathematics and statistics courses, ENG students will learn to analyze huge data sets and be introduced to machine learning, a major component of autonomous systems, like self-driving cars and robotics. For decades, product developers have depended on a primary engineering discipline to turn […]
ENG students, researcher apply engineering skills to real-life problems There are nearly one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, and about 350,000 of them make their temporary home in the Bekaa Valley. Just outside Zahle, the valley’s largest city, tens of thousands live in shelters made of wood, plastic sheets, and corrugated iron. Photo courtesy Helen […]
BU profs on team working on a wearable robot could help stroke suffers walk farther and faster This video demonstrates how the soft exosuit may help people retrain their gait after a stroke. The exosuit allows the wearer to walk more symmetrically, while using less energy. Video by the Wyss Institute. Powered by a chunky […]
