New online master of engineering degree to be offered through Penn State World Campus

Penn State College of Engineering

Today’s engineers need to be equipped to meet the ever-changing demands of a modern society and to understand how to innovate and better streamline processes. In order to meet these needs, Penn State will offer a new online degree -- master of engineering in industrial engineering -- beginning in fall 2019 to meet these requirements.

What Will It Take to Live on the Moon?

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

With NASA planning to revisit the lunar surface by 2024 and send multiple expeditions by 2028, Rutgers University’s Haym Benaroya is optimistic that people will someday live on the moon. Benaroya, a distinguished professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers University–New Brunswick, has spent most of his career focusing on lunar settlement and space exploration issues.

NUS scientists discover how to 'lock' heat in place using quantum mechanics

National University of Singapore

In a global first, NUS scientists have demonstrated that heat energy can be manipulated by utilising the quantum mechanical principle of anti-parity-time symmetry. Using this method, they were able to control the flow of heat in a material.

Giving nanowires a DNA-like twist

Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory played a critical role in the discovery of a DNA-like twisted crystal structure created with a germanium sulfide nanowire, also known as a “van der Waals material.” Researchers can tailor these nanowires in many different ways — twist periods from two to twenty micrometers, lengths up to hundreds of micrometers, and radial dimensions from several hundred nanometers to about ten micrometers. By this means, they can adjust the electrical and optical properties to optimize performance for different applications.

Beat the Heat

University of Utah

University of Utah mechanical engineering associate professor Mathieu Francoeur has discovered a way to produce more electricity from heat than thought possible by creating a silicon chip, also known as a “device,” that converts more thermal radiation into electricity. This could lead to devices such as laptop computers and cellphones with much longer battery life and solar panels that are much more efficient at converting radiant heat to energy.
