Carnegie Mellon Chemical Engineering and Carnegie Mellon Biomedical Engineering (BME) Professor Bob Tilton and Professor Todd Przybycien’s recent research help refine an easy low-cost process that could bring clean water to millions using only sand and seeds. “I think the bottom line is that this supports the idea that the simpler technology might be the better one,” says Tilton. http://cmu.li/A5eU30kvYn0

The Barry Goldwater Scholarships recently recognized two CMU Engineering students, Alexander Baikovitz of the Carnegie Mellon Mechanical Engineering Department and Mari-Therese Burton of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Created to serve as a living memorial to honor the lifetime work of Senator Barry Goldwater, the Goldwater scholarship provides funding to students pursuing research careers in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering.

Philip Bailey always had a passion for robotics—and now, he’s a NASA engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. He works on a project investigating the composition of Mars. “We have theories, but we’ve never been able to drill in and look at it,” he said.

President Trump’s recent order to the Department of Energy that US electricity markets buy their power from coal and nuclear is part of a larger effort to upend the country’s free-market electricity system, according to EPP Professor Jay Apt in a piece recently published in Axios. https://tinyurl.com/y7kw9cpa

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is working with Carnegie Mellon University and other institutions to test composites that are being used in aviation. The MURI program brings together interdisciplinary teams of researchers to problem solve high priority topics involving a cross-cutting approach. The MURI grant is for $7.5 million dollars, $1.215 million of which will go to support Dayal and the CMU team’s research. "We aim to apply fundamental models from chemistry to applied engineering problems,” said Dayal. https://engineering.cmu.edu/news-events/news/2018/06/08-materials-aviation.html

"Over the next 20 years, as self-driving technology develops, the process [of trucking] will evolve to include last-mile delivery services," says Rajkumar. "taking freight from Point A to B with no human involvement.”

While most of the world's focus is still on autonomous passenger vehicles, Professor Rajkumar predicts autonomous technology will revolutionize the trucking industry. http://cmu.li/WGTP30ko4Yc

As the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect, companies worldwide face major decisions in how they handle data.

“The companies are realizing that it is not enough to get people to just click through,” says CMU Engineering and Public Policy’s Professor Lorrie Cranor. “That they need to communicate so that people are not surprised when they find out what they consented to.” http://cmu.li/Rs4330ko4y1
