Energy and environmental experts at a recent Princeton University gathering grappled with fundamental questions about how to build a stronger infrastructure and proposed solutions for providing and using energy and water more efficiently.
Scientists from Princeton, Stanford and Ohio State universities, as well as the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, have identified the specific attributes of abandoned wells that leak significant amounts of methane, which could help state governments prioritize which wells to repair.
A team of scientists and engineers led by Princeton researchers recently reported the successful operation of a new instrument for the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii that will allow astronomers to make direct observations of planets orbiting nearby stars.
Researchers including scientists from Princeton University have developed a system that greatly simplifies the task of managing the software switches used to control traffic across a network. Called Protocol-Independent Switch or PISCES, the new system allows managers to adjust and customize their software switches quickly without sacrificing speed or efficiency.
Recent upgrades in imaging and fabrication facilities for atomic-scale research have made these labs among the best in the world and perhaps unique in their "one-stop-shop" combination of analysis and fabrication.
In a paper presented at the 2016 ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security on Oct. 27, researchers describe a system called PREDATOR that distinguishes between legitimate and malicious purchasers of new websites. The system yields important insights into how those two groups behave differently online even before the malicious users have done anything obviously bad or harmful. These early signs can help security professionals take preemptive measures.
Over 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students and post-doctorate researchers visited the Oct. 14 fair, co-sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Office of Career Services. Company representatives with flyers and souvenirs stood ready to answer questions ranging from how their interview process works to what they enjoy most about their job.
Emily A. Carter, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, has been named the recipient of the 2017 Irving Langmuir Prize in Chemical Physics of the American Physical Society.
Citing concerns about security and accuracy, Professor of Computer Science Andrew Appel urged Congress during a House subcommittee hearing on Wednesday to eliminate "touchscreen" voting machines after this November's election.
Two members of the engineering faculty, Celeste Nelson and Clifford Brangwynne, have been named to the inaugural group of Faculty Scholars, a joint award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Simons Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
New undergraduates and first-year graduate students gathered at welcoming events at the School of Engineering and Applied Science this week: 343 members of the Class of 2020 and 148 new graduate students.
Princeton University honored three engineering students with two of its top prizes for work in the sophomore and junior years at Opening Exercises on Sunday, Sept. 11.
Princeton engineers have found that, in breast cancer, tumor hardness and lack of oxygen trigger a biological switch that causes certain cells to embark on a cancer-promoting program.
This summer, 30 students worked at 19 early-stage startup companies in New York City as part of the Keller Center's new Princeton Start-Up Immersion Program. Participants lived as a group in University-sponsored housing at the Princeton Club of New York, and participated in programs — including speakers, workshops and visits to other companies — aimed at broadening their understanding of entrepreneurship.
When Ben Sorkin put on his racing suit and helmet, he knew the moment he waited over two years for had finally come. His teammates helped strap him into the driver's seat. For the first time, he would be energizing their electric car for its very first run around a race track.
