Case Western Reserve University announces the release of five engineering master’s degree programs entirely online, allowing students to earn one of the Case School of Engineering’s industry-recognized, comprehensive degrees remotely.
The online degrees launching this year span five disciplines: a Master of Engineering, and Master of Science degrees in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering and systems and control engineering.
The programs are designed for working professionals and can be completed in less than two years. Applications for all programs are being accepted now.
A total of six technologies relating to different aspects of computational imaging and image analysis of medical imaging data developed in the lab of Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, have been jointly licensed by Rutgers University and the University of Pennsylvania to the Boston-based medical imaging startup company Elucid Bioimaging.
Madabhushi was the lead inventor on these six technologies.
The Waterfall Swing—part art installation, part science experiment and part engineering showpiece—was a featured attraction at the Sydney Festival held this January in Sydney, Australia’s Darling Harbour.
The 18-foot-tall steel structure suspends riders beneath a wall of water, which—with the help of high-tech sensors—stops for every swing, letting the rider pass through without getting soaked.
Hatsuo "Ken" Ishida, professor of macromolecular science and engineering, has been elected to the 2015 class of fellows of the Polymeric Materials Science and Engineering (PMSE) Division of the American Chemical Society.
Ishida was recognized for more than three decades of breakthrough contributions to the field of polymeric materials, including seminal work in composite interfaces, in polymer spectroscopy and in the development of polybenzoxazine resins.
The Case School of Engineering has announced the appointment of Robert Gao as the new chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
An esteemed scholar, researcher and educator, Professor Gao joins Case Western Reserve from the University of Connecticut, where he served as the Pratt and Whitney Chair Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering for seven years.
