  Engineering a Win: Bioengineers Develop an "Epigenetic Toolbox"
  Take a toolbox full of pieces of DNA, build biological systems and operate them in living cells. It's not surprising that this challenge from the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition garnered interest from engineering schools across the country. What was surprising was that the competition's North America Grand Prize winners, Penn Engineering's iGEM team, had no synthetic biology training when they entered the competition.

  Lee Bassett Collaborates to Record an Electron's Quantum Behavior
Lee Basset, assistant professor in ESE, is co-leader of a collaboration that has developed a way to record the quantum mechanical behavior of an individual electron. This research uses a spin system known as the "nitrogen-vacancy center," an atom-sized defect that occurs naturally in diamond. This research could accelerate development of quantum computing devices, and the extra computing power that would come with them.

  Mastering the Mission: NROTC at Penn Engineering
Demanding academics, the rigors of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) program, and a social life. Students who elect NROTC at a prestigious university like Penn usually accept the conventional wisdom that says a person can be successful in two of the three angles of this triangle of challenges. Keelen Collins, MEAM, seems to have mastered all three, at a sacrifice of course. Collins doesn't get a lot of sleep.

  Portonovo Ayyaswamy Receives the 2014 ASME/AIChE Max Jakob Memorial Award
Portonovo Ayyaswamy, Asa Whitney Professor of Dynamical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, has been selected as the 2014 recipient of the Max Jakob Memorial Award for his "outstanding contributions to the science and art of heat and mass transfer."

Penn Engineering's Designers and Creators

Penn Engineering undergraduates are expanding the boundaries of their knowledge and pushing technological limits while working on computer control systems that are used in cars, rockets, and robotics with ESE prof Rahul Mangharam. Watch Now!

Crystals That Can Switch Configurations

John Crocker’s team has made a crystal that rearranges itself into a stronger, more stable configuration, all by changing the mix of DNA strands on the spheres' exterior.Check it out!
