Fluid Mechanics
Propulsive Research Research using engineering techniques to unlock some of biology’s most interesting mysteries reveals how soft surfaces, like water, can be distorted by applying small-scale forces. Applications could lead to new and efficient methods for propulsion or aquatic military uses.
Environmental Engineering
Predicting Sunshine Sky imagers, developed at UC San Diego and in use at the nation’s largest solar power plant, minimize uncertainty in solar energy generation by predicting solar power output. The imagers track cloud cover via fish-eye lenses and three-dimensional modeling.
Undergraduate Labs
A Foundation for Success Many students participate in several hours of research each week during the academic year. Students can also enroll in independent study, internships, and programs like Global TIES where they gain experience and solve real problems.
Design
Learning by Building Project-based learning involves constructing robotic contraptions, student-initiated projects in labs and computer courses, and a senior design project in which teams work to solve industry problems.
Biomechanics
High-Tech Health Patient imaging data, such as CT or MRI scans, are used to build interactive 3-D computer models of the arteries and veins and to simulate blood flow in order to design customized surgeries. The collaboration among engineers, computer scientists, and doctors improves results for patients.
Dynamic Systems and Control
Building Better Batteries Improving the estimation of charge distribution inside lithium-ion batteries – a project undertaken by the Cymer Center – promises more efficient and reliable electronics for industry and for consumers.
Mechanics and Materials
Impressive Compression Nanoscale materials offer immense benefits for enhanced functionality and portability. Coiled carbon nanofibers synthesized through thermal chemical vapor deposition can be used in various applications, including cushioning foams, electrical inductors and metamaterials.
Energy
Cool Little Wires Thermal transport plays a significant role in energy production and consumption. Materials built at the nanoscale, such as nanowires, are used to enhance the performance of devices for generating electricity from solar power and heat.

Dr. Padmini  Rangamani has been selected as a 2015 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Computational & Evolutionary Molecular Biology.  The Sloan Research Fellowships are extraordinarily competitive awards involving nominations for most of the very best early-career scientists from the United States and Canada.

The Texas A&M University Institute for Advanced Study (TIAS) selects Fellows from among leading international scholars, with current Fellows who are members of national academies, Nobel laureates, and National Medal of Science recipients. Professor Bob Skelton is one of this year’s seven TIAS Fellows and is spending a part of the year in College Station conducting collaborative research with TAMU faculty and students.
 

Congratulations to Padmini Rangamani who was selected as one of the 2015 Young Investigators Program awardees from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research on her proposal entitled, " Nanopore Formation in Lipid Bilayers: Insights from Mechanochemical Models".    Click here to read the press release.
