Dr. P.R. Kumar and his team of student researchers have been working to create a set of traffic rules for drones in the sky, or what we researchers call “a traffic protocol framework" in which all autonomous systems could safely operate.
Hannah Stroud and Samuel Murley, undergraduate students in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, won the undergraduate student research poster portion of the University Technical Competition (UTC) hosted by the South Texas division of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
Texas A&M University was one of the eight North American universities selected to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AutoDrive challenge, a three-year competition that allows university teams to develop and demonstrate their own autonomous vehicle.
Three students from the College of Engineering have been named Distinguished Graduate Students for 2018. They were among a group of 16 graduate students from Texas A&M University who are pursuing their master’s or doctoral degrees.
On April 16, Dr. James Holste, senior professor and professor emeritus in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, was presented the prestigious Donald L. Katz Award by the GPA Midstream Association (formerly the Gas Processors Association).
While many Texans were bracing for Hurricane Harvey’s landfall in late August 2017, a team of researchers set out to deploy instrument pods along the Texas coast. The information gathered from these Rapid Response Units (RRUs) could help develop more resilient coastal communities by improving predictive models and tools.
Gordan England, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense and Secretary of the Navy, recently visited Texas A&M University to give a lecture on ethics and the principles of leadership to engineering students in the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution.
Two graduate students from the Texas A&M University College of Engineering received the U.S. Senator Phil Gramm Doctoral Fellowship Award for scholarly excellence. The awards, each for $5,000, will support the research efforts of the students as they pursue their doctoral degrees.
Jeremy Osborn, a nuclear engineering Ph.D. student working with the Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives, is part of a team of researchers who are working to develop new methods to determine the reactor origins of weapons-grade plutonium.
