Texas A&M Engineering’s graduate program was ranked 12th overall nationally and remained seventh among public institutions in the latest U.S. News & World Report survey, “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2019.”
The wind and water have subsided after Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas in August, but the road to recovery is long. To help the process move along, 32 engineering students from Texas A&M University spent their winter break assisting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as site inspectors.
More than 400 students participated in Invent for the Planet, the 48-hour global design challenge hosted by Texas A&M University, in February. But in the end it was a team right here in College Station who took home the grand prize - an opportunity to present at the VentureWell OPEN Minds Conference.
Dr. Reza Sadr is seeking to bring his research success from his time at the Texas A&M University at Qatar across the ocean to the Texas A&M University campus in College Station by collaborating with researchers within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and beyond.
Students from all walks of life enter Texas A&M University in pursuit of degree. For some, they don't even step into a classroom. Douglas Compton graduated last fall as the Department of Mechanical Engineering's first graduate in the distance learning graduate program.
Rachal Thomassie, a former advisor in the Texas A&M University Department of Mechanical Engineering, is pursuing her master's degree in interdisciplinary engineering at Texas A&M with the hope that she will be able to continue to help students in a whole new way.
Dr. Xingyong Song, assistant professor in the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution with a joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, was recently presented the prestigious Doctoral New Investigator Award from the American Chemical Society (ACS) for his research on autonomous shale oil drilling.
Dr. Luis San Andrés, Mast-Childs Chair in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M, works on multiple projects in the Turbomachinery Laboratory. His work in rotordynamics includes novel squeeze film dampers, which help reduce vibrations within a jet engine, creating more reliable equipment that is safer and more comfortable to the ears of passengers. The long-term project has been funded by Pratt & Whitney Engines since 2008.
Texas A&M University researchers are studying seal leaks in subsea and aging oil well production facilities with the potential to greatly increase the efficiency of multiple-phase pumping and compressors turbomachinery.
