Levi McClenny, a doctoral candidate who holds a Design of Energy Materials fellowship and was recently appointed student regent for the state of Texas, has utilized the program to gain insight as to what happens at the microstructure level in materials.
On June 25, 2019, Dr. Sean McDeavitt, director of the Nuclear Engineering and Science Center, hosted the first Experimenters Integration meeting at Texas A&M University. This meeting was attended by approximately 85 contributors from across five different Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, 20 universities and seven industry partners. The focus of the meeting was information sharing in order to build stronger collaborations across the suite of the Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) Experiment program.
Dr. Arum Han and a Texas A&M University-led research team received a grant from the DARPA program totaling more than $15 million to develop a way to quickly detect and determine which bacterial pathogens are present in a soil or water sample.
During the inaugural President’s Excellence Fund Symposium, eight Texas A&M faculty members, including three from the College of Engineering, that earned project funding from the first round of Texas A&M's X-Grants gave presentations about their research.
In partnership with TEES EDGE, the National Corrosion and Materials Science Reliability Lab at Texas A&M University now offers a short course course that introduces industry professionals to the fundamentals of corrosion and the multiscale-level materials performance for corrosion engineering applications.
Drs. Raktim Bhattacharya and Robert Skelton are developing computational tools to build larger, lighter blades for wind turbines using tensegrity principles with a $375,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
A team of researchers from Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin is taking a deeper look into post-Harvey Houston to find new ways to combat construction-related labor exploitation and trafficking.
