Dr. C. Nataraj, Mechanical Engineering professor and director of the Villanova Center for Analytics of Dynamic Systems, and Professor and Department Chair Dr. Sridhar Santhanam, have completed phase one of an industry-sponsored project to economize and reduce the time consumption of fatigue testing, the method by which aircraft companies test aircraft parts under varying loads to determine structural stability.
The Engineering Entrepreneurship Summer Institute introduces students to entrepreneurial technologies, business principles and venture planning, not with standard-fare lectures and books, but with first-hand lessons from those who have “been there and done that.” In addition to guest speakers, the program takes students on a variety of educational field trips, including a recent visit to Milky Way Farm.
How do flying insects balance a sense of smell with aerodynamics to navigate their surroundings? And what can we learn from them that can be applied to unmanned aerial and underwater vehicles? Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Chengyu Li, PhD, is using computational fluid dynamics to find answers to those questions.
Three Villanova College of Engineering projects were among the 26 funded through the Manufacturing PA initiative. With faculty as the principle investigators, the program embeds graduate and undergraduate students with local manufacturers, where they embark on research projects to develop new technologies and advance innovation.
Electrical Engineering senior Daniel McTeague has been awarded a $6,000 scholarship through the Merrill W. Buckley, Jr., IEEE Student-Branch Leadership Scholarship Program of the Philadelphia Section in recognition of his contributions to Villanova University’s student branch.
