An educational concept receiving a lot of discussions now is STEM. STEM which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, acknowledges these disciplines are cross-curricular in that you can’t teach one of these disciplines without incorporating the others. Coding is becoming so popular because it is an easy way to [...]Show More Summary
(Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) Columbia Engineering researchers have developed a new method for improving T cell manufacture by focusing on the materials involved in this process. Their study uses a polymer mesh to activate the T cells, a critical step for their production. Show More Summary
(Princeton University, Engineering School) Nitrogen-based synthetic fertilizer forms the backbone of the world food supply, but its manufacture requires a tremendous amount of energy. Now, computer modeling at Princeton University points to a method that could drastically cut the energy needed by using sunlight in the manufacturing process.
In Kenya, youth under 25 years old make up the largest number of people unemployed in the country, according to The World Bank. Audrey Cheng, 24, is trying to change that.

Guest post by Saurabh Vishnubhakat, Associate Professor at the Texas A&M University School of Law and the Texas A&M College of Engineering. Although Prof. Vishnubhakat was an advisor at the USPTO until June, 2015, his arguments here should not be imputed to the USPTO or to any other organization. Prof. Vishnubhakat was counsel of record […]
(Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) The three domains of life -- archaea, bacteria, and eukarya -- may have more in common than previously thought. Over the past several years, Harvard researchers have been studying how cells regulate size. Show More Summary
Conference: 25 Jul 2018 - 27 Jul 2018, Mieres, Oviedo, Spain, Spain. Organized by Polytechnic School of Mieres.
There was once a time I regretted not attending a school with a more rigorous engineering program. I would tell myself, I should have gone to an institution like Stanford which has a strong CS program and ties to the bay area tech scene. I’d be further ahead in my career hobnobbing with VCs showering me with champagne and hundred dollar bills.
(Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) Metalenses -- flat surfaces that use nanostructures to focus light -- promise to revolutionize optics by replacing the bulky, curved lenses currently used in optical devices with a simple, flat surface. Show More Summary
The Holberton School is a new hybrid of trade and higher-education institution that offers a unique approach to real-world software engineering training. Unlike a four-year education, learning at Holberton is completely focused around project-based learning with an emphasis on peer-to-peer collaboration and mentoring. Show More Summary
(Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) Lithium niobate is already one of the most widely used optical materials, well-known for its electro-optic properties but it is notoriously difficult to fabricate high-quality...Show More Summary
Bobo sends a link to the Marine Corps Times which reports that Colonel Daniel P. O’Hora, the commanding officer of the Marine Corps Engineer School was fired because of a “loss of trust and confidence in his ability to serve in command.” “I have never seen or heard of a Marine Corps command so broken […]
