5/25/2022

The College of Engineering recently awarded six Multidisciplinary Research Seed Grants to faculty members, including one in partnership with the College of Health and Human Development and another with the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences.

Researchers find imperfections provide protection for system symmetry

5/19/2022

An international research collaboration has discovered how to exploit certain defects to protect confined energy in acoustics systems. Their experimental approach provides a versatile platform to create at-will defects for further theoretical validation and to improve control of waves in other systems, such as light, according to principal investigator Yun Jing, associate professor of acoustics and of biomedical engineering at Penn State.

Andrew Barnard joins acoustics

3/25/2022

Andrew Barnard joined the Penn State College of Engineering as professor and director of the graduate program in acoustics on Jan. 1. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from Michigan Technological University and a doctorate in acoustics from Penn State.

Nine engineers recognized with $5.5 million in NSF early career awards

2/28/2022

Nine faculty members in Penn State’s College of Engineering earned National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards. Each project funded ranges in duration from three and a half to five years, with grants from roughly $500,000 to more than $800,000.

Researcher awarded Los Alamos National Laboratory materials science award

2/18/2022

Parisa Shokouhi, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics and acoustics at Penn State, recently received the Institute for Materials Science Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

Balancing sustainability, safety and comfort in engineered floor slabs

2/4/2022

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Using less material in floors is a viable strategy for improving sustainability in buildings, as it can reduce the structure’s environmental footprint. Prioritizing only this goal, however, can lead to unwanted effects — such as an echo in a room or noise traveling between floors, according to Nathan Brown, assistant professor of architectural engineering.

Wearable head scanner could allow for comfort, mobility during brain scans

10/12/2021

To collect accurate images of a patient's brain, the patient must be still and confined in a tube-like MRI scanner for a long period of time.

Multi-institute team awarded NSF grant to develop dynamic architected materials

10/4/2021

A multi-institute collaboration including Yun Jing, associate professor of acoustics and biomedical engineering at Penn State, has received a $1.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation to design architected materials that are fine-tuned with dynamic behaviors.

New director of Penn State's Graduate Program in Acoustics named

8/20/2021

Andrew Barnard, a Penn State alumnus and current associate professor of mechanical engineering at Michigan Technological University, will join Penn State as the director of the Graduate Program in Acoustics, housed within the College of Engineering, on Jan. 1, 2022.
