The American Physical Society has elected Sean Sun, professor and vice chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, to its 2016 class of Fellows.
Whiting School faculty in the Department of Mechanical Engineering have been awarded a $1.6 million Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer Our Future grant from NSF.
The Washington Post recently featured a video report about Whiting School mechanical engineering students who designed and built a prosthetic foot that adjusts to fit heels up to four inches high. The student team hopes the invention will help change lives for women who’ve lost a leg or foot to amputation.
Engineers at Johns Hopkins University have devised a computer model to help unravel the wicked wind conditions that test the world’s greatest golfers at Augusta National Golf Club, home to The Masters each April. Rajat Mittal, an aerodynamics expert and professor of mechanical engineering at Johns Hopkins, developed the model with Neda Yaghoobian, a postdoctoral visiting […]
You can whack it with a hammer, attack it with a drill, even stab it with a screwdriver. But try as you might, you won’t be able to tamper with a high-tech pill dispenser designed by mechanical engineering students at Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering. Which is exactly the point. The U.S. Centers […]
On a cold, blustery day earlier this week—hardly an ideal day for a regatta—a few dozen Johns Hopkins University engineering students arrived at the fountain in front of President Ronald J. Daniels’ residence, the Nichols House, to assist in wirelessly steering miniature, robotic sailboats in a stiff December wind.”This is what you call a sink […]
Aezon Health, a team comprising 19 undergraduates from Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering and Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, has been selected as one of 10 teams in the final round of the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE competition. Sixteen of the students are from the Whiting School’s applied mathematics and statistics, biomedical […]
Gregory Chirikjian, a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Whiting School of Engineering, was honored with two awards at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers 38th Mechanisms and Robotics Conference, held August 17 through 20 in Buffalo, N.Y. Chirikjian won both the “Mechanism and Robotics Award” for his cumulative contributions to robot […]
A mechanical engineering course offered by the Engineering for Professionals program has been recognized with the 2014 Blackboard Catalyst Course Award for Exemplary Course. “Mathematical Methods for Engineers,” taught by George Nakos and designed by Paul Huckett, an EP instructional designer, was initially offered online for Fall 2013 and has been available every semester since […]
