Some of the greatest minds in smart grid research came to Texas A&M University during the first ever Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Smart Grid Synchronized Measurements and Analytics. Leaders from academia, research organizations and industry from all over the world facilitated innovation, knowledge transfer and technical progress in addressing synchronized sampling and synchrophasors.
Nuclear policy and a shared commitment to serve tie together the Department of Nuclear Engineering and the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, creating cross-disciplinary interactions that connect the opposite sides of campus.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), a member of The Texas A&M University System, announced the creation of the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise Center for Computer Architecture Research, made possible with an $11 million donation from Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Researchers at Texas A&M University are working on new Specially Adapted Housing Assistive Technology that could help veterans with severe spinal cord injuries and disorders achieve even more independence with a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
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.
The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) partnered with Texas A&M University to host Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE) Day on April 8. The event offered attendees the chance to learn about career opportunities and internships for all STEM majors with the NNSA labs, plants, and sites.
Dr. Mohammad Alam, head of the Fats and Oils Program at the Process Engineering Research and Development Center (PERDC), has received a grant from the Malaysian Palm Oil Board to fund several semesters of teaching and short courses about the significance of dietary oils and fats as essential sources of energy. Similar programs exist at other universities, but PERDC’s labs and pilot plants provide a truly hands-on experience that short course attendees and students will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
Dr. David Staack and graduate research assistant Xin Tang are looking to nature for inspiration in developing a new method of underwater plasma generation using shrimp as a model – a discovery which could provide significant improvements for actions ranging from water sterilization to drilling.
