Through the state’s Manufacturing PA program, academia and industry embark on research projects to develop new technologies and advance innovation. The latest grants will support Mechanical Engineering’s Dr. Calvin Li on “Innovation in the Calibration of CO2 Sensors to Increase Throughput” and Dr. C. Nataraj for “Development of a Low-Cost Field Ventilator.”
Though this year’s event took place virtually, the results of Pitch Day 2021 did not disappoint Villanova Engineers who took the top Meyer ICE Awards and were represented on winning teams in the Villanova Student Entrepreneurship Competition.
The Campus Green was a site for celebration on April 22 when the College of Engineering recognized its Academic Excellence and Meritorious Service awardees. Departments also presented senior medallions and the recipient of the College’s highest honor, the Robert D. Lynch Award, was announced.
Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Dr. Chengyu Li was awarded nearly $184,000 to study how flexible structures generate flow across the viscous-inertial transition with the goal of developing broadly applicable scaling principles to guide future technology development including bioinspired devices, sensors, and robots.
The National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenges Scholars Program is an engineering education supplement that broadens the reach of undergraduate study. The 2021 class of scholars included Simon Brooks, Bridget LaSala, Siobhan Merrill and Aldo Pierini.
