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).
A team of engineering faculty, students, alumni and other collaborators are designing and creating prototypes for low-cost ventilators with a device constructed of 3D printed and off-the-shelf components specifically designed for the COVID-19 crisis.
Taking a cue from birds and insects, Brown University researchers have come up with a new wing design for small drones that helps them fly more efficiently and makes them more robust to atmospheric turbulence.
The University of Chicago has appointed Ka Yee C. Lee as its new provost, promoting her from vice provost of research. The professor of chemistry becomes the first female in the role for the University of Chicago, effective Feb. 1.
Engineering undergraduate Nishanth Kumar '21 (Computer Engineering) was among four Brown University students to earn a prestigious Honorable Mention Award for his research by the Computing Research Association (CRA).
In a finding that could be useful in designing small aquatic robots, researchers have measured the forces that cause small objects to cluster together on the surface of a liquid — a phenomenon known as the "Cheerios effect."
Understanding why platinum is such a good catalyst for producing hydrogen from water could lead to new and cheaper catalysts — and could ultimately make more hydrogen available for fossil-free fuels and chemicals.
Quantum mechanical calculations show that the melting point of metals decreases at extreme pressure, meaning even high-density metals can have a liquid phase that's actually denser than its normal solid phase.
