Researchers at Penn State have been awarded a three-year, $300,000 National Science Foundation grant to study the impacts that industry-sponsored projects have on students’ design performance, and their engagement with the projects and in cornerstone courses. Researchers will use that information to develop an assessment tool to use in project-based learning settings.
Kathryn Jablokow, associate professor of engineering design and mechanical engineering at Penn State Great Valley, has had a passion for design engineering her whole life. Now she is shifting her research focus to the corporate world, thanks to a recent grant from the National Science Foundation.
Penn State industrial engineering researchers are part of a collaborative team that has received $1.2 million in funding to develop an advanced framework that will allow engineers to share and process engineering data as well as formally represent design and manufacturing-related knowledge throughout the product design lifecycle.
Timothy W. Simpson, one of the leading experts in additive manufacturing technology and the design of 3D-printed metal parts in the country, has been appointed the Paul Morrow Professor in Engineering Design and Manufacturing in Penn State’s College of Engineering.
There's no shortage of good new ideas, says engineering design expert Scarlett Miller. We walk away from them every day. The question is, why? And what can we do about it?
To introduce Penn State’s first-year engineering students to the importance of sustainability and environmental protection, relating to fossil fuel extraction and consumption, Chevron has asked students enrolled in fall 2016 sections of EDSGN 100: Introduction to Engineering Design to improve upon some common industry practices.
Khanjan Mehta, director of the Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship Program and assistant professor of engineering design at Penn State, will lead a discussion at a luncheon series held by the College of Liberal Arts at noon on Monday, Nov. 7, in 217 Willard Building.
An interdisciplinary team of Penn State researchers, led by primary investigator Aaron Knochel, assistant professor of art education, has received a two-year, $299,780 National Science Foundation grant to design and build a mobile makerspace to explore informal learning in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) subjects.
Penn State is hosting its first ever Immersive Reality Symposium on Oct. 31 to showcase the broad spectrum of virtual, augmented and mixed reality research that is underway throughout the University.
Incoming Penn State freshman Teniola Idowu, is one of the 1,000 students to receive the honor of being named as a 2016 Gates Millennium Scholar, the last class of the program, and one of 29 students named to the fourth cohort of Penn State Millennium Scholars.
