A computational materials scientist at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has received three major federal grants totaling $1.3 million to develop tougher glass that can safely immobilize nuclear waste, as well develop new types of glass, for practical uses, that would be more resistant to breaking and scratching.
UCLA bioengineers have demonstrated that a gel-like material containing tiny magnetic particles could be used to manage chronic pain from disease or injury.
With school officially in summer session, we caught up with a few of our students to find out what they are up to. From volunteering to internships, not surprisingly, many are spending time engineering change.
UCLA Samueli Professor Tim Fisher, a world leader in understanding how tiny entities like atoms and molecules transport energy and heat, has been named the inaugural holder of the John P. and Claudia H. Schauerman Endowed Chair in Engineering.
A team of UCLA electrical and computer engineers has created a physical artificial neural network — a device modeled on how the human brain works — that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.
Two UCLA computer scientists are part of a new multi-university microelectronics research center that aims to dramatically speed up computer performance by integrating data processing into memory and storage for future computer systems.
