A three-year, $3 million gift to the A. James Clark School of Engineering from Lockheed Martin will fund aerospace research while increasing opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The gift deepens a strategic partnership established in 2010 and renewed last year between the University of Maryland and the global security and aerospace firm.

Min Wu is the 2019 recipient of the Harriett B. Rigas Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Education Society. This honor is awarded to recognize outstanding female faculty who have made significant contributions to undergraduate education and the global engineering community. Wu is being recognized for excellence and outstanding leadership in signal processing, education, and mentoring.

William E. Bentley is working with a team of researchers to focus on engineering microbial consortia, wherein cell subpopulations are engineered to work together to carry out a desired function. This strategy—which others in the field have also explored—allows engineers to design specialized cells and divvy up the target workload among a group of cells. 

Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Maryland have a new addition—The Juniper Networks Laboratory. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the completion of the lab, thanks to a generous gift and a growing partnership with Juniper Networks, one of the leading networking companies headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

The Clark Doctoral Fellows Program was launched in 2017 to support high-performing engineering Ph.D. students at the A. James Clark School of Engineering as part of a $219.5 million investment by the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation.
