Nine students from the United States and China are on campus this week for Computational Sciences for Undergraduate Research Experiences, a summer internship program focused on developing knowledge and skills to use advanced computing in research.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory News
When the next generation of high performance computing comes to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, UT’s physicists will be working on the first projects that put its power to work.
Researchers from UT, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and other high-level facilities came together recently for the first Women in STEM Symposium at UT.
More than 60,000 people attended the Orange and White Game on Saturday, April 25, at Neyland Stadium. Some of those visitors also checked out the Shelby Cobra 3D-printed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The Shelby Cobra 3D printed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which served as a hallmark of American ingenuity during President Barack Obama’s East Tennessee visit in January, will be on display in the plaza near Gate 21 at the Orange and White Game.
The College of Engineering’s Alexander Papandrew and Gerd Duscher are part of a broader Oak Ridge National Laboratory-led team that recently received a $2.75 million Department of Energy grant for work on improving fuel cells, $1.4 million of which went to their project.
The role of UT’s College of Engineering as a leader in advanced materials research got yet another boost recently as Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, or LIFT, officially opened its headquarters.
What is advanced composites manufacturing, why was the UT-led consortium was selected by the president, and what is the impact for the area?
On January 9, President Barack Obama announced that UT will lead the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation, or IACMI, a $259 million public-private partnership. The Institute reflects a $70 million commitment from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and $189 million from IACMI’s partners. Supported by the Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, IACMI joins four other institutes backed by the Obama administration in a recent push to accelerate advanced manufacturing.
The phrase “cloaked in secrecy” can often be used to describe research projects, but thanks to breakthroughs in the College of Engineering, optical cloaking is no longer just the domain of science fiction.
