Dan Ezra Aurian-Blajeni, a recent graduate of the Chemical Engineering B.S. program who works with Chemistry Professor Matthew Holden, earned first place in the 2015 International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE) Boston Area Chapter Student Poster Competition at Worcester Polytechnic Institute on April 16th. The winning poster was entitled “Droplet-Interface Bilayers: An Emerging Technology for Screening Human Ion Channel-Drug Interactions.” The poster was based on the independent project that...

Senior electrical engineering major Kelly Kennedy plays a key role in helping female students at the UMass Amherst College of Engineering stay the course at school, thrive in their educations, and graduate into gainful jobs. She is the president of the UMass Amherst chapter for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). If you are a female contemplating attending the college, you ought to be aware of what Kelly, SWE, and all its activities can do for you. By joining SWE, you are guaranteed an expanding network of college and professional contacts, a built-in female support system in a male-...

Engineering is undoubtedly one of the most demanding majors at any university. Engineering students wouldn’t want it any other way. But that engineering degree of difficulty didn’t stop a passel of hard-pressed engineering students from standing out as intercollegiate competitors, sports stars, and Renaissance students this past year.

Any discussion of our outstanding scholar-athletes must begin with the UMass Men’s Swimming Team, in which four students from our Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department torpedoed their way to glory throughout the season, and...

An article triggered by a College of Engineering and UMass News Office release about the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department’s 25th annual Senior Design Day was picked up by the Associated Press and appeared in media across the nation. The Hampshire Gazette published the UMass release, and the AP distributed the resulting Gazette article. Projects ranged from those that help the blind, a “smart kitchen,” digital exercise advice, and an aerial camera for video-taping action sports....

On May 2 the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Department will hold its annual Senior Design Project competition, the climax and showcase event for this MIE capstone course, “MIE 415: Design of Mechanical Systems.” The course and its year-end competition are considered “the integrative culminating experience” of the education in the MIE department. This required course for every mechanical engineering (ME) senior is designed as the zenith of the entire undergraduate engineering education for every student in the department. The event, which is free and open to all visitors,...

On Monday, October 26, more than 200 young women from 25 high schools in Massachusetts and the region - including Springfield, Chicopee, Greenfield, and Orange - will explore the fields of engineering and computing through hands-on activities. The event is the annual Women in Engineering and Computing Career Day Conference, and the aim of this program is to excite, inspire, and encourage young women to pursue engineering or computer science as an academic track and career path.

The conference will be held from 9:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. in the Campus Center Auditorium at UMass...

The pioneering Minuteman Launch Team is the first group of UMass students to enter the NASA Student Launch competition, and the team members are extremely excited at the prospect of launching a high-powered rocket, scheduled for takeoff in April of 2015 at the Marshall Spaceflight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. You can help launch our College of Engineering team on its way to Alabama by donating used two-liter soda bottles for a college outreach event starting March 23. Please drop off bottles in Marston 126 anytime between now and March 23. Note that your bottles will actually be...

Doctoral student Seyedeh-Shirin Montazeri of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department has been awarded a fellowship of $6,000 from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT-S) Society Graduate Fellowship program. Ms. Montazeri’s Ph.D. advisor is Professor Joseph Bardin.

As Professor Bardin said about Montazeri, “Her research is focused on ultra-low-power cryogenic low-noise amplifiers, and she has recently reported an order-of-magnitude improvement in DC power consumption over the previous state of the art....
