This program offers Texas A&M faculty and staff the opportunity to learn how to skillfully interlace technology into an online or hybrid course. Out of 16 awards, three faculty members from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and one professor from the Department of Aerospace Engineering were presented an award to transform engineering education in their respective courses.

Reliable storage in the age of big data

Most people might think of computer storage, like an external hard drive or flash drive, as something static that you can leave sitting somewhere indefinitely without issue. In reality, that’s not the case. For instance, data is stored in flash drives by capturing electrons in cells, and over time those electrons can escape for a variety of reasons, creating errors in the data or corrupting the data altogether. Dr. Anxiao (Andrew) Jiang, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, said even the ambient room temperature can affect data storage.
