At this year's annual meeting, which was held May 31 to June 2 at Pebble Creek Country Club and the Turbo Lab research facility, 23 proposals were presented. The goal of the proposals is to find answers to questions relating to performance and reliability of turbomachinery—rotating equipment that extracts or adds energy to fluids.
The fourth ENG-LIFE Workshop, a faculty-led workshop designed to increase potential for multidisciplinary interaction and scientific communication between engineering, physical sciences and the life sciences, took place on April 14 in the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M University.
What started as a whiteboard concept nearly 20 years ago by Dr. Duncan Maitland, the Stewart & Stevenson Professor I in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, could soon turn into a revolutionary product for the medical industry for treating vascular problems like aneurysms.
The Texas A&M University System is collaborating with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in establishing ARL South. ARL South will leverage regional expertise and facilities throughout the south central region to accelerate discovery, innovation and transition of science and technology in support of the Department of Defense's Third Offset Strategy and the Army of 2050.
The Engineering Genesis Award for Multidisciplinary Research was presented to four Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) researchers and their research teams during the TEES External Advisory Board meeting November 18.
It does not require a force as powerful as the sun to get Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin to work together, but it certainly helps. The institutions, along with Texas A&M University-Central Texas and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, are officially collaborating on a major solar research initiative following the awarding of a new grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s (TEES) Smart Grid Center has received a new grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) that will further the center’s mission to strengthen and protect the nation’s power grid.
Texas A&M University-Central Texas has received a $1.5 million grant through The Texas A&M University System’s Chancellor’s Research Initiative (CRI) to bring an aspiring young researcher, Dr. Taylor Harvey, to the campus.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and NASA/Johnson Space Center (JSC) has signed a Space Act Agreement (SAA) that establishes a framework for increasing collaboration among the agencies’ researchers and engineers.
