Engineering professors' work on renewable batteries and solar lighting showcased in the University's Research Highlights Magazine, starting on page 20.
College of Engineering professors Dr. Chris Mi and Dr. Kevin Wood are developing a commercial scale power grid system out of spent EV batteries:
SDSU Water Resources Engineer Hassan Davani speaks with NBC 7 San Diego on what Imperial Beach needs to do to prevent future flooding..
Mechanical engineering professor Sung-Yong (Sean) Park studies the intersection of the light and the behavior of fluids through small channels for energy systems, which enable technologies such as solar energy. The scope of his current research centers on creating sustainable energy sources, such as solar indoor lighting.
Interim Director of Graduate Research Dr. Natalie Mladenov (CCEE) and Mechanical Engineering student researcher Rodolfo Callado are interviewed highlighting the importance of undergraduate research.
Senior James Bunnell will have co-published five scientific papers when he graduates in the fall with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering.
Dr. Reza Akhavian, Assistant Professor, Department of Civil, Construction & Environmental Engineering received a prestigious NSF CAREER award to improve coordination between construction workers and robots.
Four ideas aim to address rural infrastructure, Imperial County health and environmental issues, transboundary water, and advancing 3D printing.
College of Engineering Innovation District Town Hall
On March 9, 2021, SDSU Vice President for Research & Innovation, Dr. Hala Madanat, hosted a Town Hall to discuss the initial progress, suggestions and answer questions, related to the SDSU Mission Valley Innovation District with the College of Engineering
SDSU Electrical & Computer Engineering, Department Chair and Professor, Dr. Chris Mi, will work with UC San Diego on a NASA funded project to bring futuristic electric air taxis closer to reality.
SDSU and UC San Diego bioengineers pinpoint a key factor that allows cancer cells to spread. The finding could help discover a way to make them stay put.
Dr. Junfei Xie, Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, received a National Science Foundation CAREER award to develop a flying cloud computing system in the air.
Dr. Matthew Verbyla (Environmental Eng.) and Lorelay Mendoza (B.S. Environmental Eng., class of 2019) recently published a paper in Environmental Engineering Science journal entitled Environmental Engineering for the 21st Century: Increasing Diversity and Community Participation to Achieve Environmental and Social Justice.
With such extensive impacts, COVID-19 awareness and understanding among the public has increased, while skepticism declined. SDSU scientists weigh in on the shift.
Faculty from all seven of SDSU's colleges have rose to the occasion during the global COVID-19 pandemic. In dozens of projects - totaling more than $8.6 million in funding - researchers are analyzing how COVID-19 operates and spreads, how the pandemic affects our mental health and how communities are coping in the midst of crisis. Our faculty are developing best practices for testing, contact tracing, health care and education, and working diligently to bring many of these solutions to vulnerable communities here in San Diego and across the globe.
These fellowships supplement external funding to support 80 highly accomplished research scholars.
We are proud to welcome for Fall 2020: Dr. Margherita Capriotti, in Aerospace Engineering, and Dr. Zahra Nili Ahmadabadi & Dr. Elisa Torresani in Mechanical Engineering.
