A laboratory at the University of Toronto has designed and simulated nanosatellite control systems using software from MathWorks. The project to develop the high-performance attitude control systems engaged graduate students working alongside engineers from the Space Flight Laboratory at the university's Institute for Aerospace Studies.
Grant money will be helping graduate students from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute turn into "civic scientists"--researchers who apply their science and engineering backgrounds on community-based problems.
A team of students from Carnegie Mellon University is hoping to make headlines with some football wins in coming days. No, they're not part of the FIFA World Cup taking place in South Africa. This team is taking on contenders in the RoboCup 2010 world championship in Singapore.
DePaul University has opened a new master of science program focused on predictive analytics, a set of disciplines used in healthcare, financial services, and a number of other industries to predict future events based on pattern recognition in large data sets.
A design course at MIT has tapped a software donation from a company that sells interactive voice response systems to help students learn how to create voice applications.
A leading indicator portends good news for those seeking to grow the count of science and engineering experts in the United States, even though the indicator is two years old.
The real purpose behind this scientist's research into the security of implanted medical devices is to examine the psychological impact and legal implications, as well as the technological possibilities.
Reflecting the White House's focus on performance metrics and accountability, a new initiative with an unwieldy name is about to begin measuring the impact of federal investment in the sciences.
Intel will soon go into production with a Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture that uses the x86 instruction set to create high-performance computing platforms running at trillions of calculations per second.
A project out of the University of Virginia to get young children comfortable with engineering has been selected as one of 10 winners in a MacArthur Digital Media and Learning Competition. The project, called Fab@School, is intended to teach K-12 students about mathematical analysis and modeling, digital fabrication, and engineering by allowing them to fabricate 3D copies of objects that they've designed themselves.
