Brittany Tsou, Arman Mohsen Nia, Travis Schamuss, and Yitzhak Snow received awards from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the 2016 Whiting School of Engineering Convocation.
It’s crunch time across the Whiting School of Engineering, as students labor—sometimes around the clock—in laboratories and design spaces to put the finishing touches on projects ranging from a small hovering aircraft that can land in a tree branch as effortlessly as a bird to a hand-held device that enables breast cancer treatment in rural clinics.
Arman Mohsen Nia, a senior Materials Science and engineering student and vice president of the Johns Hopkins chapter of the Engineering Honor Society (Tau Beta Pi), has been awarded with a Tau Beta Pi fellowship.
Look closely enough and you’ll find crystals in a number of technologies and devices, including batteries, medical implants, and semiconductors. Understanding the properties of crystalline materials is vital to continued advancement, but often the amount of time and money needed to analyze these properties can have a negative impact on new developments.
Johns Hopkins’ Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design, housed in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Jhpiego, a global health nonprofit and university affiliate, convened the weekend Emergency Zika Design Challenge with a single, strategic focus: to come up with innovative ideas “to prevent disease through protection from mosquito bites.”
Inside Higher Ed recently covered a report issued by the American Physical Society’s (APS) committee on LGBT Climate in Physics. Michael Falk, professor of materials science and engineering, serves as chair of the committee.
