Congratulations to Ariel (Turner) Gebhardt (BSME '13), just named to the Purdue Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame! She was a two-time All-American volleyball player, as well as a two-time Academic All-American.
Purdue University researchers have received a $511,946 grant from the Indiana State Department of Health to perform an MRI longitudinal pilot study of Hoosier veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) who are participating in an experimental treatment. The Purdue Neurotrauma Group includes Purdue ME professor Eric Nauman.
Congratulations to Fabio Semperlotti, awarded the DARPA Young Faculty Award for 2019, recognizing academic scientists who contribute to national security. Fabio builds computer simulations of hypersonic vehicles (traveling faster than Mach 5).
Patents. Trademarks. Copyrights. Trade secrets. Do engineers really need to know all these legal terms before entering the workplace? Purdue says yes, offering a class devoted to intellectual property, specifically for engineers.
Salvador Rojas worked his way up from being a janitor, to being a summer intern in engineering, to now being a Ph.D. candidate at Purdue's Programmable Structures Lab, under Prof. Andres Arrieta. Celebrate his story, and many others, during First Generation College Awareness Week.
Purdue University engineers have studied energetic materials (explosives, propellants and pyrotechnics) for many years. Now, for the first time ever, they have used high speed x-rays to look inside these energetic materials during an actual explosion, to determine exactly what causes them to react.
Energy companies have invested a lot in the potential of creating fuel from biomass, the leftover plant material from harvesting corn and other crops. But there's an unexpected problem -- moving the stuff through a pipe.
