News from the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering - September 2023
Alumni, Industry Partners & Friends:
As the fall semester kicks off, I am always energized by the return of students to campus and the renewed sense of purpose that I feel for our department’s mission: to pioneer scientific breakthroughs, launch innovative technologies and educate the next generation of creative engineers. We have already made a great start this fall towards these goals.
This fall semester has already come with many successes. Carson Bruns and Kaushik Jayaram continue to inspire the public with “smart” tattoos and tiny, shapeshifting robots, respectively. And Mike Hannigan and Daniel Knight continue to expand their K-12 outreach program in soil and air quality monitoring.
I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the fall semester will bring for our department.
