Developing engineering identity may be key to student success

Students who identify themselves as engineers early in their educational careers are more likely to complete their college degrees. That's the premise behind a new research project aimed at increasing the diversity of engineering ...

Undergraduate engineers advance shock wave mitigation research

A team of undergraduate engineers at UC San Diego has discovered a method that could make materials more resilient against massive shocks such as earthquakes or explosions. The students, conducting research in the structural ...

Moving faster in a crowd

Cell particles move more quickly through a crowded cellular environment when the crowding molecules are non-uniformly distributed. New research also shows that particle transport in crowded cells can actually be faster than ...
