Running a fusion reactor is like holding part of the sun in a bottle its heart is a raging storm of particles trapped in a magnetic field. To translate this storm’s power into a practical energy source, scientists will have to harness and control the reactor by adjusting the twists and flows of its superheated particles. “Plasma can destabilize in milliseconds,” said Egemen Kolemen *08, an assistant professor in mechanical and aerospace engineering and the Andlinger Center
Mung Chiang Arthur LeGrand Doty Professor of Electrical Engineering Member of a group helping the U.S. President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology write a report on education information technology and online education to the president. “The development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) is both promising and challenging. This will be a long-term experiment, and we need to better understand the empirical, data-driven science of lear
The student Engineering Council last week bestowed Excellence in Teaching Awards on seven School of Engineering faculty members and two graduate students.
Clarence Rowley '95, assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is a recipient of funding from the U.S. Air Force's Young Investigators Research Program. Rowley will study unsteady aerodynamic models for flight control of agile micro air vehicles.
Newly published research by a Princeton engineer suggests that understanding how air travels across the sunroof of a car may one day make jet engines less noisy.
