Princeton University researchers have built a new computer chip that promises to boost performance of data centers that lie at the core of online services from email to social media.
Princeton University emeritus professor Christodoulos "Chris" Floudas, who applied the disciplines of mathematics and chemical engineering to complex systems that include protein folding and fuel refining, died Aug. 14 while vacationing with his family in Greece. He was 56.
President Christopher L. Eisgruber has released a summary report of an 18-month strategic planning process for the School of Engineering and Applied Science. The summary, part of the University's broader strategic planning process, is titled "Create. Educate. Serve." and describes a set of eight guiding goals as well as six priority recommendations to advance the mission of the school.
"Materials really do change society," says materials institute director Craig Arnold in a recent interview. "They change the way we think about and interact with the world, how we use objects, and how we create things. That is why I like teaching it."
Princeton researchers have unveiled a new photo editing method for correcting distortions in "selfies," photos taken at abnormally close range, to make them look more like conventional portraits. The techniques have broader implications for adjusting and animating photos.
Howard A. Stone, the chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been awarded the American Physical Society's 2016 Fluid Dynamics Prize, which recognizes achievement in fluid dynamics research.
Antoine Kahn, the Stephen C. Macaleer '63 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science and professor of electrical engineering, is serving as vice dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science effective July 1.
Researchers from Princeton University are joining with colleagues from U.S. government laboratories in an effort to dramatically improve the test for the Ebola virus. The goal is to offer a quick, accurate and inexpensive method to help contain future epidemics.
The eight teams in the 2016 eLab business accelerator include an effort to bring intelligent robotic systems to the "internet of things," an online class for American Sign Language and a way for students to improve their experience at university hackathons.
In the course, "Science, Society and Dinner," first-year students learn the basics of knife skills, sautéing and palate education; they learn about the water cycle, sustainable agriculture and the biochemistry of taste — and how they all fit together.
Researchers have found that the "Great Firewall" technology that controls internet traffic entering and leaving China is not merely an apparatus that statically blocks traffic. It also actively sends probes to other machines that are connected to the internet, preemptively searching for internet infrastructure and services that seek to circumvent its defenses.
Among nearly 300 Engineers Without Borders programs in the United States, Princeton's was honored at the EWB-USA International Summit in Denver this month with the organization's Premier National Chapter award.
New research indicates that the Chinese government could dramatically improve air quality with more attention to an overlooked source of outdoor pollution — residential cooking and heating.
Five engineering professors were recognized for distinguished teaching at the 2016 graduation ceremonies.
The Class of 2016 gathered on the Friend Center courtyard on Monday, May 30, to celebrate graduates' achievements including creating a new system to design aircraft, developing building techniques to assist refugees, and vividly describing the importance of scientific research to audiences beyond the university.
