Common semiconductors used in electronics, such as silicon, aren’t able to function well under high-power and high-temperature conditions. But Materials Science and Engineering Professor Lisa Porter is working to control the electronic properties of gallium oxide, which, if used in power electronics, could save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. https://youtu.be/psqNV3A45Dc

Last week at the Consumer Electronics Show, Mechanical Engineering alumnus and Ewaybot founder Bowei Tang showcased MoRo, a mobile robot designed to help handle objects, guide people, record events and send out alerts. MoRo, which stands for More Roboticists, is voice-controlled and has two six-joint arms with three fingers at each end that enable it to grab items, from water bottles to tissues.


“We wanted to show our robot at the Consumer Electronics Show because it is a representation of the high-tech industry and let people know that our robot could help people’s lives in the near future,” says Tang. http://cmu.li/KRM93085ie4

The SuperSuit, created by an Electrical and Computer Engineering alumnus and his wife, combines technology with playtime for an interactive experience that gives players special powers and plenty of exercise. The suit was demonstrated at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. http://cmu.li/Hvtn307YSyi

Protecting mobile games against hackers has been challenging, but a recent study by a group of CyLab researchers shows how much work needs to be done. The team was able to hack 77 of the 100 most popular games on Google Play.

"This is worrisome because mobile games are increasingly including abilities to purchase in-game objects with real currency,” CyLab researcher Yuan Tian says. “Our hope is that we can educate developers to design and implement secure systems and users to avoid being attacked.” http://cmu.li/NPJw307Whva

The Dean’s Office of Carnegie Mellon College of Engineering is looking for a select group of students to help the marketing and communications team report on events and activities from the student perspective.

Students will attend events and activities on and off campus, sometimes with special access. They will not only be a part of the story but will also capture and promote content via social media.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Last fall, the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture had its grand opening, making it the only national museum dedicated exclusively to the African American experience. Brittani Grant, a Civil and Environmental Engineering alumna, served as a Project Manager at Clark Construction Group for the project.

“It’s been really awesome to get to work on something so monumental and something that is going to last hundreds of years—that I’ll be bringing my family to for generations,” she said. http://cmu.li/WohF307WVFr

Story
Tagline
A top-five engineering college with an innovative, multidisciplinary, global focus.
Introduction
Welcome to the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University!

Today's College of Engineering is a hundred years in the making. From a trade school for the children of steelworkers to a top 10 engineering college, the college has consistently looked to the future as the measure for its mission.

As a student-centered, research-intensive college, it is our goal to offer an education that encourages innovative thinking, develops technical excellence and builds collaboration, communication, and leadership skills.

Today's engineers must be citizens of the world. From Pittsburgh to Portugal, Senegal to Shanghai, engineers are challenged to solve problems on a global scale. At the College of Engineering we are committed to building multi-cultural skills and communication, challenging our students and faculty to grow beyond borders and boundaries. This is demonstrated by our curriculum and in the staff, faculty, and students we attract.

With a global economy comes opportunity and competition. We help our students meet that challenge through a curriculum and culture that embraces innovation. Our graduate programs incorporate master's and doctorate degrees focused on innovation management and entrepreneurship. Our faculty is well known for and committed to both outstanding teaching and innovations in curricula and pedagogy.

Our pioneering, flexible undergraduate curriculum allows every student to customize the program to achieve his or her goals. This includes an initiative to support first-year students during that critical transition from high school to college. Our students represent the best and brightest minds—we are committed to securing their future.

In addition, research within the college transcends disciplinary, departmental, and college boundaries and offers a unique opportunity for students to be trained while developing the next generation of innovations that will have an impact and change society, for both graduate and undergraduate students.

Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering is a place for people who desire to solve problems, to discover, to create, to design, to invent, and to innovate—and all of this with the goal of having an impact on society. Our alumni have distinguished themselves in many ways, and we expect that future generations will do the same.
