“Connecting Southern Nevada to Southern California by high-speed rail is an opportunity to lead by example. A success here could inspire similar projects across the country.” 🚅 Hear from railroad engineering expert and #UNLVEngineering professor Hualiang (Harry) Teng about what it took to get the Brightline West high-speed rail project on track: https://lnkd.in/gvFJ7RMn

    Innovators at SEDS UNLV pushed new boundaries with SPARK I, the first-ever student-created liquid rocket engine in Nevada! 🚀 The students created a solution to environmental and budgetary limitations alike: SPARK I is almost entirely 3D-printed out of resin. This adaptation allowed the student team to optimize the rocket while staying within their limited funds.Read on to learn how #UNLVEngineering students are achieving lift-off with both actual rockets, and their future careers: https://lnkd.in/gAPrXB6g#UNLV #aerospaceengineering #aerospaceindustry

    Meet Shengjie (Patrick) Zhai!🌟 Shengjie first joined UNLV in 2009 as a doctoral student. Now, as an assistant professor at #UNLVEngineering, Shengjie is sending his work to the International Space Station (ISS).🚀 🛰 The recent project, which involved sending 25 microfluidic devices to the ISS to explore how the zero-gravity environment would affect the growth and behavior of oral bacteria, is an example of the unique research opportunities available to students who work in Shengjie's lab.His lab —which is moving into our new Advanced Engineering Building—is also part of another international collaboration to develop an AI-powered health assistant. The technology merges cutting-edge AI with wearable biosensors for real-time, personalized medical monitoring. (Think J.A.R.V.I.S, the digital personal assistant from the Iron Man movies).Intrigued? Learn more about Shengjie and his passion for helping all students find fulfillment in and out of the lab: https://lnkd.in/eEd5iPzZ#unlv #biomedicalengineering #electricalengineering #artificialintelligience

    This summer, several graduate #UNLVEngineering students will gain invaluable experience at the nation's top national laboratories thanks to the Nuclear Security Science and Technology Consortium(NSSTC). The consortium, housed at UNLV, is creating a workforce pipeline and encouraging minority students to pursue #STEM careers through doctoral programs in nuclear engineering, radiochemistry, mechanical engineering, physics, and electrical and computer engineering. The consortium's benefits were on display recently during an exercise, which included a team from the Nevada National Security Sites, focused on remote sensing of radiation using robots. During the demonstration, students used ground robots and drones to detect 100 sealed radiation sources scattered across a test site on UNLV's campus, imitating a radiation accident or spill. ☢ Learn more: https://lnkd.in/edYija2V

    To ensure that the workforce remains here, #UNLVEngineering has pioneered the StepUp & StartUp Internship Program, connecting engineering students from underrepresented groups with local startups. The SUSU program, now in its second year, is funded by the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED), making it possible for these startups to actually pay their interns and get reimbursed. Alejandro Chacon, internship coordinator, has been with the program since the beginning and has already seen three students get hired in full-time roles.“That’s the goal, that eventually my students will end up staying here in Las Vegas, working here in Las Vegas and having a really strong pool of engineers,” says Chacon, who steers students through the process of preparing for interviews, and shaping up their résumés and portfolios.Learn more in Las Vegas Weekly: https://lnkd.in/gWSe53EY#InTheNews #technology #startups #STEM #internships #engineering #computerscience

    Three University of Nevada-Las Vegas professors are working on an iron-production method that doesn’t generate carbon emissions, part of an effort to clean up one of the world’s dirtiest industries. The U.S. Department of Energy’s ARPA-E awarded 13 teams nationwide grants to develop a new way of processing steel that generates fewer emissions than a traditional blast furnace. Jeremy Cho, mechanical engineering professor and lead researcher for the UNLV team, said he knew he could find a chemistry-based solution, but didn’t know nearly as much about carbon emissions or iron’s geology. “It’s a big, difficult problem,” said Cho.The team also includes Andrew Martin, a UNLV geoscience professor, and Marie-Odile Fortier, an environmental engineer. They began working last summer.Read more about the team's unique solution in the Las Vegas Sun: https://lnkd.in/gYVVrqUC#UNLVEngineering #InTheNews #mechanicalengineering #environmentalengineering #geoscience #climatechange #sustainability
