Two electrical engineering students are refining an attitude control system and are seeking ways to reduce the impact of atmospheric heat that changes a spacecraft’s orientation during launch. Both students will share information about their work for CSTARS-2 during the 2021 Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Dr. Cory Merkel, an assistant professor in RIT's Kate Gleason College of Engineering and director of RIT's Brain Lab, will be presenting his work on neurochip applications at the 2021 Intelligence in Chip: Tomorrow of Integrated Circuits (ICTIC).
Dr. Andres Kwasinski, a professor in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and Dr. Fatemeh Shah-Mohammadi, an alumna of RIT's Engineering Ph.D. program, have been granted a patent for the invention of a radio spectrum sharing leveraging link adaptation in primary network.
Blanca Lapizco-Encinas, a professor in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering, recently received a National Science Foundation grant for $348,000 to develop a new separation technique to be used in microfluidic devices.
Steven Day, professor of biomedical engineering at RIT, and Majed Refaai, from the University of Rochester, applied to the U.S. Patent Office this past April for a new blood typing device that can assist trauma patients prior to blood transfusions.
RIT faculty-researchers will develop a game-design training system that could help astronauts maintain balance, motor skills, and other cognitive functions while in space. NASA, in partnership with the National Space Grant Foundation, has selected six university teams, including RIT, to develop innovative design ideas that will help NASA advance and execute its Moon to Mars exploration objectives.
Dimitris Chachlakis became the first student to be awarded the new Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering this May from RIT. The new degree builds upon the Ph.D. in engineering, a multi-disciplinary degree established several years ago, and since then refined into three distinct programs.
Micatu Inc. donated its groundbreaking Gridview optical sensors to RIT for a new campus learning lab. The equipment allows faculty and students to monitor renewable integration and manage the addition of distributed energy resources onto the campus microgrid.
Hira Abid crossed continents to come to RIT. The chemical engineering student from Pakistan will make another global connection when she begins graduate school in Turkey as one of RIT’s newest Fulbright awardees.
