September 24, 2020 - India's leading aerospace precision engineering company has collaborated with Illinois researchers to develop AQovent.
September 24, 2020 - CODA was inspired by their Design for Manufacturability course, ME 270, where the final project was to redesign and simplify an existing product at a lower cost. They use this design model for their projects, conducting extensive research to see what solutions already exist and then modifying them to be simpler and easy to manufacture.
September 23, 2020 - MechSE alumnus and former faculty member Ken Christensen has been named Armour College Dean of Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
September 21, 2020 - Professor Tonghun Lee aims to increase unmanned vehicle performance and reliability and reduce complete drone failures, thanks to a new $8M grant from the U.S. Army.
September 17, 2020 - Studies indicate that homemade masks help combat the spread of viruses like COVID-19 when combined with frequent hand-washing and physical distancing.
September 16, 2020 - New research from Seid Koric demonstrates how the innovative sequence of deep learning methods can learn from modeling data and correctly reproduce the complex history. This is the first time it's been proven that artificial intelligence can learn and reproduce material behavior successfully.
September 14, 2020 - Nenad Miljkovic is part of a team that won an NSF grant to develop transformative manufacturing processes for reliable, energy dense, and easily recyclable next generation Lithium-ion batteries.
September 11, 2020 - M.Eng.ME graduate student Khee Lim Low's interest in sustainable energy systems led him to enroll in the master's degree program and to the Illinois Solar Decathlon team.
