Flow boiling experiment to launch to International Space Station

Issam Mudawar's Flow Boiling and Condensation Experiment (FBCE) has been collecting data on the space station since August 2021. Now part 2 of the experiment is launching to ISS, investigating how condensation works in a reduced-gravity environment.

Soft morphing robotics inspired by pixel displays

Biological creatures have thousands of muscles that help them to move effortlessly. Duplicating that in a robot would require numerous actuators, wires, and other machinery. Purdue University researchers have borrowed technology from pixel-based displays to create flexible, paper-thin surfaces that can morph into detailed 3D shapes without bulky infrastructure.

Getting in GEARE: Purdue's premier study abroad program celebrates its 20th anniversary

It’s been two decades since the first intrepid cohort of Purdue students traveled to Karlsruhe, Germany to inaugurate GEARE, Purdue’s groundbreaking global engineering and work experience program. Since then, nearly 1,000 Purdue students have participated in this unique combination of study abroad and work abroad.

In May 2023, many of these students and professors returned to Karlsruhe for a 20th anniversary reunion: sharing stories about renegade carousels, Formula 1 road trips, and how the percentage of Purdue ME students studying abroad increased from 1% to 40%.

Using microfluidics to manufacture hydrophobic drugs

In the high-stakes world of developing new cancer-fighting drugs, researchers face a daunting problem – most of the new formulas they create are not easily soluble by the human body. To tackle the problem of “hydrophobic drugs,” Purdue pharmacy researchers have joined forces with Purdue mechanical engineering researchers to develop a microfluidic device capable of encapsulating hydrophobic drugs in a controllable water-soluble coating at the nanoscale.
