Emergency relief attempts often suffer due to problems with the radio spectrum rescuers use to communicate with one another. A team of engineering students developed a device to help change that.
Northeastern students will match their solar-powered boat against other university teams at the annual Solar Splash competition next week in Iowa.
A group of first-year students recently completed the Summer Discovery Experience, an intensive PRISM summer program in which students experience hands-on research in mathematics, physics, and biology.
Mechanical and industrial engineering professor Allen Soyster has received the most esteemed honor bestowed by the Institute of Industrial Engineers, the world’s largest professional society dedicated to advancing the field.
A team of engineering students conceived a smart toothbrush at the annual Engineers for the Greater Good competition, winning first place and a $1,500 stipend to turn the concept into reality.
Chemical engineering professor Thomas Webster’s team developed an injectable, conductive material to regenerate heart tissue after either a heart attack or cardiac disease.
Industrial engineering major Kendall Sanderson studies how to use systems engineering to streamline the healthcare industry.
Electrical and computer engineering capstone students were inspired by the movie Iron Man in their development of goCAD, a program that allows users to manipulate virtual objects with nothing but a swipe of their hand.
Northeastern’s Black Engineering Student Society provides a
host of opportunities for students to build scholarship, and
members shined recently at a regional competition.
Christina Ferrara, a chemical engineering major who has her own food blog, ran a cooking demo recently as part of Food Justice Week.
Professor Ahmed Busnaina’s method of directed assembly is faster, cheaper, and more versatile than traditional 3-D printing. What does it mean? Could $10 iPhones and tissue engineering breakthroughs be just the tip of the iceberg. Photo by Mary Knox Merrill.
Applications like invisibility cloaking can’t be realized until the metamaterials that enable them are operable at a range of frequencies. New research from associate professor Hossein Mosallaei could lead to this possibility.
