Each year, the National Science Foundation presents an estimated 500 CAREER awards totaling around $250 million to early career faculty. In 2020, seven engineering faculty members at Texas A&M University were recipients of this honor.

A man holds a glass of water against a background of trees

Researchers at Texas A&M University developed a water-energy nanogrid consisting of a purification system that uses energy from solar panels to decontaminate water. This green solution is a step toward helping rural communities with their electricity and water needs.

A team of researchers at the Precise Advanced Technologies and Health Systems for Underserved Populations center are developing a new way to approach diet monitoring to benefit the more than 30 million Americans living with Type 2 diabetes.

This visual represents blood flow, using streamlines, through a mechanical heart valve in an anatomic aorta and ventricle.

To further improve the health outcomes of patients with mechanical heart valves, Dr. Iman Borazjani uses his understanding of fluid-solid surface interactions to simulate blood flow through mechanical valves.

A new set of analytical techniques developed by Texas A&M researchers can help predict if wave-energy devices will capsize in rapidly changing ocean environments.

Autonomous vehicle or self-driving cars

Little attention has been focused on the potential health impacts of self-driving vehicles, but Texas A&M University researchers have developed a conceptual model to identify these health impacts systematically.
