The National Security Agency (NSA), along with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has designated Texas A&M University as a National Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cyber Operations, making it one of only a handful of academic institutions in the United States to hold three NSA distinctions. Texas A&M is already designated as CAE – Four-Year Baccalaureate/Graduate Education (CAE-CDE) and CAE – Research (CAE-R). The newest designation certificates will be presented during an awards ceremony at the 9th Annual National Cyber Summit on June 7.

When Casey McNeil and the rest of the REEcycle team were competing at the 2016 Texas A&M New Ventures Competition (TNVC), they had received some positive feedback, but still weren’t sure they were going to receive funding from the National Science Foundation. Now, a year later, the team has not only received funding, but is closing in on opening a pilot production facility in Houston.

TEES researchers design supersonic transport aircraft for NASA that modifies its shape in real time

April 6, 2017
| By: Aubrey Bloom
A team of Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) researchers has been selected for a potential award by NASA to lead research into commercially viable civil supersonic transport aircraft that meet noise and efficiency requirements for overland flight. Put simply, their research is on designing an aircraft that can modify its shape in real time in order to optimize for fuel efficiency or quiet flight as the flight phase and conditions change. The team is one of five transformative system-level aviation innovations that NASA has selected as part of the NASA Aeronautics’ University Leadership Initiative (ULI.)

Plugging the leaks: Research aims to prevent nuclear waste seepage

March 22, 2017
| By: Kristina Ballard
Nuclear waste is a reality, whether remnants of nuclear weapons or the byproducts of nuclear power plants. While we aren’t at risk of an attack from a giant radioactive lizard, nuclear waste can still pose threats to human health. Dr. Zachary Grasley, an associate professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University, conducted experiments for the Savannah River National Lab (SRNL) in hopes of preventing nuclear waste leakage. The waste in question is relatively harmless, especially compared to what we see in comic books and movies, but it is a waste that must be safely disposed of. The best way to safely store and contain this nuclear waste is by mixing it into a cement grout and storing it in large concrete vaults.
