Aggie Ocean Discovery, a team of students from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, entered the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE competition a mere three years ago. They have now been named a finalist in the global competition challenging teams to push the boundaries of ocean technologies.
The leadership of the Texas A&M Energy Institute (TAMEI), a joint institute between Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), along with the TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center (GFRC), have announced a new partnership that will align the research, education and training interests of both organizations for their mutual benefit.
More than 400 students participated in Invent for the Planet, the 48-hour global design challenge hosted by Texas A&M University, in February.

Dr. Reza Sadr is seeking to bring his research success from his time at the Texas A&M University at Qatar across the ocean to the Texas A&M University campus in College Station by collaborating with researchers within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and beyond.
Radiation detectors are deployed for many different uses in a variety of different field conditions, and many of these detection systems are mobile. Lt. James Falkner and Dr. Craig Marianno are working together to analyze the performance of mobile radiation detection systems with respect to how fast the systems are moving.
