Profile on new Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering faculty member Markus Petters and his research focus on suspended particulate matter with an emphasis on their health threats and on understanding when and why these particles react in the atmosphere.
Engineering students from Mexico learned about the latest advancements, challenges, and opportunities in reducing the environmental and social impacts of transporting people and goods through a new certificate program in sustainable transportation and entrepreneurship.
Electrical and Computer Engineering’s Alexander Khitun and Mykhaylo Balinskyy developed an innovative solution to the notoriously difficult Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP)—which vexed mathematicians and computer scientists for nearly a century—with enormous practical implications for breakthroughs in science and industry.
UCR Bourns College of Engineering students participated in the Data Science Challenge, a two-week summer internship at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that this year prompted them to use data science and machine learning as tools to tackle a real-world problem in the biosciences; the limitations of the electrocardiogram.
On July 1 Professors Matthew Barth and Xiaoping Hu received appointments as the Esther & Daniel Hays and Reza Abbaschian endowed chairs respectively, with endowment investment to expand their research.
Our scholars got dollars. Nearly 40 future engineers received financial support this past academic year in the form of scholarship awards ranging largely between $1,000 and $2,500. While this financial support assists Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) students in covering some of the costs of their education, the scholarship-application process is meant...
