May 22, 2013 - The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) recently announced that three faculty from Georgia Tech were chosen to receive the 2013 Walter L. Huber Prize.
April 16, 2013 - Researchers are developing a novel technology that would facilitate close monitoring of bridges, parking decks and other structures for early signs of strain, stress and formation of cracks. Their approach uses wireless sensors that are low cost, require no power, and can be implemented on tough yet flexible polymer substrates.
April 9, 2013 - Controlling the shapes of nanometer-sized catalytic and electrocatalytic particles made from noble metals such as platinum and palladium may be more complicated than previously thought.
April 7, 2013 - A new separation process that depends on an easily-distinguished physical difference in adhesive forces among cells could help expand production of stem cells generated through cell reprogramming. By facilitating new research, the separation process could also lead to improvements in the reprogramming technique itself and help scientists model certain disease processes.
April 2, 2013 - Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have won a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract to develop three-dimensional chip cooling technology able to handle heat loads as much as ten times greater than systems commonly used today.
April 1, 2013 - Instead of programming a robot to copy an existing dance such as those in the online videos, Amy LaViers, a Ph.D. candidate in electrical and computer engineering, is defining the various styles of human movement and creating algorithms to reproduce them on a humanoid robot.
March 20, 2013 - When Georgia Tech opens the doors to the Georgia Dome next month as the host institution for the 2013 Final Four, expect third-seeded Florida to walk out as the national champion. That’s the prediction from Georgia Tech’s Logistic Regression/Markov Chain (LRMC) college basketball ranking system, a computerized model that has chosen the men’s basketball national champ in three of the last five years.
March 18, 2013 - ECE Assistant Professor Azad Naeemi has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award for his research project entitled "Physical Models and Experimental Validation for High-Frequency Multilayer Graphene Interconnects."
March 18, 2013 - A team of researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a new type of interface between cochlear implant devices and the brain that could dramatically improve the sound quality of the next generation of implants. Cochlear implants help deaf individuals perceive sound.
March 1, 2013 - Scientists are now better able to examine rare methane gas samples recovered from deep beneath the seafloor using innovative tools developed by Georgia Tech.
February 8, 2013 - The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) announced this week that aerospace engineering alumnus James O. Ellis, ('70), and civil engineering alumnus John R. Huff, ('68), have been elected to the prestigious organization.
January 16, 2013 - Researchers at Georgia Tech are major players in a team that will develop an advanced prosthetic socket system that could offer better comfort, functionality and mobility for military-veteran amputees.
January 16, 2013 - Farrokh Ayazi, a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is among the 298 individuals worldwide named as a 2013 IEEE Fellow.
