In chess— the classic test of strategy and wit— players take turns making one move at a time, able to see what their opponents are doing and adjust plan accordingly.
University of California San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering Professor Andrew B. Kahng has been awarded the 2019 Ho-Am Prize for Engineering, the highest award for engineering in Korea.
The engineering challenge sounds like a nearly impossible task: making a canoe out of concrete that can float—and race—on water. But ask anyone on the UC San Diego Concrete Canoe team, and they’ll tell you it’s not only possible but also a highlight of their engineering experience at UC San Diego.
In the Mexican border city of Tijuana, 13 ambulances, one fast response unit with an emergency physician and a rescue truck serve a city of almost 1.7 million people. Run by Cruz Roja—the Red Cross— these ambulances are dispatched by radios, without tracking in real time.
Gopesh Tilvawala’s path to San Diego spans four countries and four continents. That journey led him to UC San Diego and the pursuit of a Ph.D. in mechanical and aerospace engineering with a focus on medical device technology. For the past four years, he’s been working to develop a first-of-its-kind…
Ten UC San Diego undergraduate students. Ten weeks. One floor-ready, interactive museum exhibit.
Invention Science Fund, the incubator arm of Intellectual Ventures, and San Diego’s Legler Benbough Foundation will contribute $1 million in combined sponsorship funds to the Institute for the Global Entrepreneur at the University of California San Diego to help accelerate new startup companies.
It’s one thing to learn about computer vision, machine learning, control systems, neural networks and tools like Python and TensorFlow in lectures, books or videos. It’s another to learn these skills by actually using them to build and test small autonomous vehicles. That’s what students are doing…
Engineers at UC San Diego used wearable off-the-shelf technology and machine learning to predict an individual’s blood pressure and provide personalized recommendations to lower it based on this data.
High school students Angela Mendez and Carolina Martinez spent seven weeks at UC San Diego working side by side in nanoengineering professor Zheng Chen’s lab developing a coating that could protect lithium-ion batteries from overheating and catching fire. They learned how batteries work; what it means…
