Engineering deans, led by FIU’s Amir Mirmiran, presented a bold plan to lawmakers in Washington, D.C., today designed to increase the number of under-represented minorities in engineering by more than 60 percent by 2025.
A Category 5 hurricane is a monster of a storm that most people would want to avoid. But, civil engineer Arindam Chowdhury actually recreates those monster hurricane force winds in hopes of helping people better prepare for the real thing.
FIU will partner with North Carolina State University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Virginia on a national nanotechnology research effort to create small, wearable, self-powered devices that will help people monitor their health.
“Receiving the fellowship has encouraged me to see that other people recognize that my research is relevant and it has definitely made me more confident,” Consuegra says.
The 12-fan Wall of Wind (WOW) at FIU is the largest and most powerful university research facility of its kind and is capable of simulating a Category 5 hurricane — the highest rating on the Saffir-Simspon Hurricane Wind Scale.
Welcome to another exciting academic year! Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Panther family.
TEDxFIU’s inaugural event on November 15, 2012, Beyond the World You Know, will bring speakers from the FIU universe who can take us well beyond our own world/s.
FIU and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority partnership has given students the opportunity to put what they’re learning in the classroom to real use.
“In order to know how to better secure yourself, you have to know how they hack,” explains Professor Faisal Kaleem, who is teaching a pilot class this summer called “Ethical Hacking.”
The world of opportunity in this century is driven by knowledge, innovation, and hard work. Our faculty and staff know that every student counts.
Congratulations to Shabnam Namin. Shabnam’s doctoral dissertation, “An Experimental and Theoretical Analysis of Nitric Oxide Availability in the Microcirculation”, is focused on research on engineered tissue model systems.
The faculty of FIU’s College of Engineering & Computing is among the most productive in the country, according to the newly published 2011 edition of American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Profiles of Engineering & Engineering Technology Colleges, which collects data from more than 350 engineering schools.
