As an employee of General Motors, Yue Qi was involved early with the Collaborative Research Laboratory partnership established between GM and Brown University. Continuing these collaborations with Brown colleagues as her career progressed from industry to academia, Qi’s return to campus in July as the newest engineering faculty member was eased by the familial feelings she already had for Brown Engineering.
A new study uses computer simulations to track airflows inside a car’s passenger cabin, providing potential strategies — some of them counterintuitive — for reducing the risk of transmitting airborne diseases.
In a conversation with leaders of Brown’s Carney Institute for Brain Science, two Brown neuroengineers explored how brain-computer interfaces promise to help restore movement in people with brain or spinal disorders.
An introductory fluid mechanics class in the School of Engineering couldn’t be taught in-person this fall, but a group of undergraduates worked over the summer to make sure hands-on lab experiments remain part of the course.
Novel coronavirus and its effect on University science laboratories has kept engineering student Portia Tieze from working on campus this summer — so she brought the lab to her apartment to continue her research.
Cloud Agronomics — a student and alumni venture launched with support from the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship — uses hyperspectral imaging to detect crop-borne diseases that destabilize food supplies and cost farmers billions.
Engineers build the future, and a Brown engineering education gives the tools to help build it. Engineering faculty have recorded some messages and well wishes for our graduates. We can't wait to see the accomplishments of the Class of 2020!
Brown biomedical engineering’s Ramisa Fariha, Sc.M. ’20 and Benjamin Wilks, Ph.D. ’20, along with John Santiago Ph.D. ’20 (molecular biology, cellular biology and biochemistry), have been named recipients of the 2020 Graduate Student Contribution to Community Life Awards.
Brown School of Engineering seniors Abbie Kohler ’20 and Greg Boudreau-Fine ’20 were named winners of the MedTech track last week at the 2020 Rhode Island Business Competition. Winners were announced Wednesday, May 13 at a virtual awards ceremony.
Brown School of Engineering professors Allan Bower and Kenny Breuer were among those honored with Brown University’s awards in teaching, sponsored by the Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning. Bower was honored with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in Engineering, while Breuer was presented with the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring in Engineering.
Peter Damian Richardson, longtime Brown University faculty member who previously served as chairman of the executive committee of the center for biomedical engineering, passed away April 21 at age 84. Richardson taught at Brown for 57 years until his retirement in 2015, ultimately becoming professor emeritus of Engineering and Physiology.
Ph.D. candidate Yuan Liu will graduate this May with his doctoral degree in chemistry, after utilizing the Open Graduate Education program to earn his engineering master's degree in May 2018. In July, he will begin a postdoctoral associate position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the Center for Ultracold Atoms.
The School of Engineering is introducing a blended (online and face-to-face) offering of its highly successful traditional, classroom based, eleven month master’s degree Program in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship (PRIME).
