Wearable COVID-19 Monitoring System for Patients
Moeness Amin, PhD, Director of the Center for Advanced Communications in Villanova’s College of Engineering, has partnered with Philadelphia-based firm RTM Vital Signs, LLC to develop an accurate, easy-to-use technology to monitor at-risk individuals, including seniors, for early signs of COVID-19—before the infection progresses to a dangerous and potentially irreversible degree.
Villanova University Selected for “Engineering for One Planet” Pilot Program
Villanova’s College of Engineering is one of five institutions selected to participate in the Lemelson Foundation’s Engineering for One Planet (EOP) Pilot Program. With a $30,000 grant, the College will begin the process of aligning the undergraduate engineering curriculum within the EOP framework, which will instill social and environmental principles across all disciplines of engineering education.
A $523,333 National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant will fund a new confocal Raman microscope facility that goes beyond high resolution imaging to provide a better understanding of biological and chemical processes under native conditions. The instrument will greatly advance knowledge and promote interdisciplinary research in nanomaterials, thermal and chemical engineering, and bioengineering/biology.
The Humanitarian Engineer Podcast: First Episode Now Available!
The College of Engineering has launched The Humanitarian Engineer podcast, which will highlight the work being done within the Center for Humanitarian Engineering and International Development. Students, partners, and in-country experts will share the challenges faced from a technical and humanistic perspective, as well as the progress achieved through collaborative efforts. In this first episode, learn more about the new Center and its director, Dr. Jordan Ermilio.
Engineers’ resourcefulness was on display as teams in the INNOVATE L3Harris Summer Program adapted to a virtual environment. INNOVATE provides self-directed student teams with a two-month paid opportunity to develop innovative solutions to unmet societal or technical challenges. This year’s projects included Snake Bot, a Driving Simulator, Neuro Language Platform and Blue Blanket.
