Villanova Engineers Respond to the Coronavirus Pandemic
In March 2020—when everything changed—College of Engineering faculty and alumni began sharing their perspectives and their expertise on COVID-19. They have presented computational models in the search for an inhibitor; partnered with Philadelphia area hospitals to develop emergency ventilators; wrote about the potential for blockchain to help medical facilities stem the spread of the disease and shared their expectations for the global economy in light of the crisis.

Villanova University appointed Michele Marcolongo, PhD, as the Drosdick Endowed Dean of the College of Engineering, effective July 31. Dr. Marcolongo’s engineering career spans more than three decades and encompasses roles as an academician, researcher, administrator, inventor and entrepreneur.
Villanova faculty are leading efforts on a smart brain imager (Dr. Meltem Izzetoglu), wetting of binder solution on porous bed of microparticles (Drs. Bo Li and Qianhong Wu) and optimization for microelectromechanical systems devices (Dr. Rosalind Wynne). These projects are among the 43 funded recently by the Department of Community and Economic Development’s Manufacturing PA initiative.
Students in Villanova’s Sustainable Engineering graduate program partnered with Plymouth Township in Montgomery County, PA, to develop a plan to meet the township’s renewable energy goals as part of the nationwide “Ready for 100” initiative.
A team of three Villanova faculty and two staff have been awarded a two-year, $397,196 National Science Foundation Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) grant. Titled “CC* Compute: High-Performance Computing (HPC) Backbone for Accelerating Campus-Wide and Regional Research,” the award will fund a university-wide HPC cluster that will help advance Villanova’s computational research.
Villanova Receives Funding for COVID-19 Response Through Manufacturing Innovation Challenge
