Penn State's College of Engineering will celebrate Engineers Week Feb. 18-23 with entertaining and educational activities planned at the University Park campus.  Engineers Week  aims to recognize how engineers make a difference in our world, increase public dialogue about the need for engineers, and bring engineering to life for kids, educators and parents.   >>
3-D printing improves cell adhesion and strength of PDMS polymer

Combining two different polymer forms can switch manufacturing of silicone parts from molding, casting and spin coating of simple forms to 3-D printing of complex geometries with better mechanical characteristics and better biological adhesion, according to a team of Penn State researchers.  >>
Penn State civil engineering student named New Face of Civil Engineering 

Danielle Berman, a Penn State civil engineering student and student in the Schreyer Honors College, has been named one of ten 2018 New Faces of Civil Engineering, Collegiate Edition by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Wagner receives AFOSR funding to investigate overtrust with autonomous vehicles

Overtrust frequently occurs with autonomous vehicles and robots - and it can have serious physical, and even fatal, consequences for humans in both the military and society, but Alan Wagner, assistant professor of aerospace engineering, is investigating the factors that cause overtrust, and developing techniques that will allow autonomous systems to recognize it and prevent it, thanks to funding from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR).  >>
Repetition key to self-healing, flexible medical devices

Medical devices powered by synthetic proteins created from repeated sequences of proteins may be possible, according to materials science and biotechnology experts, who looked at material inspired by the proteins in squid ring teeth.  >>
Singla named American Astronautical Society Fellow

Puneet Singla, associate professor of aerospace engineering, has been elected an American Astronautical Society (AAS) Fellow.  The grade of Fellow recognizes AAS members "who have made significant scientific, engineering, academic and/or management contributions to astronautics and space, in addition to contributions to AAS."   >>
