More than 40 engineering students from the Texas A&M University College of Engineering shifted into high gear the week of April 30 to May 5, placing second overall in the first competition milestone of the General Motors and Society for Automotive Engineers’ AutoDrive challenge in Yuma, Arizona.
Quentin Baker, Class of ’78 graduate from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, was recently recognized as a 2018 College of Engineering Outstanding Alumni Honor Award Recipient, an honor he said he was stunned and honored to receive.
The Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) recently signed a collaborative research agreement with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Smart Grid Center and the center’s extension in Qatar on the study, “Optimizing KAHRAMAA’s Smart Grid Capabilities and Setting its Future Roadmap.”
Houston-based Arovia, creators of the Spontaneous Pop-Up Display (SPUD) a collapsible portable desktop display, was awarded $50,000 as the winner of the 2018 Texas A&M New Ventures Competition hosted by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES).
Dr. Mladen Kezunovic, Eugene E. Webb and Regents Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, was named a 2018 Distinguished Member of the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRÉ) for his longstanding service to the organization.
Dr. Hae-Kwon Jeong, associate professor in the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has developed a novel method to separate light olefins – such as ethylene and propylene that are used in packaging, plastic processing and textile manufacturing – from paraffins – such as ethane and propane. This is one of the most significant separations in chemical and petrochemical industries, with propylene production amounting to around $90 billion annually worldwide, yet one of the most challenging due to the similarity of their physical and chemical properties.
