Engineering students honored for academic achievement at Opening Exercises

Two engineering students of the Class of 2020 were among seven Princeton undergraduates honored for their academic achievements at Opening Exercises on Sunday, Sept. 8.

Engineering faculty receive presidential early-career awards

Four faculty members of the School of Engineering and Applied Science have been named recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their research careers.

Optimizing operations for an unprecedented view of the universe

The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will allow researchers to detect objects at the solar system’s edge and gain insights into the structure of our galaxy and the nature of dark energy. An automated telescope scheduler developed by researchers at Princeton University and the University of Washington aims to maximize the LSST’s efficiency over the span of its operation, currently planned for 10 years beginning in 2023.

Class Day celebrates graduates' curiosity and confidence

Dean Emily A. Carter opened the School of Engineering and Applied Science's 2019 class day ceremony by calling on graduates to apply the knowledge they gained at Princeton in service to society. “This country needs every engineer and scientist to work on the problems that face the nation, and that face humanity and the planet,” she said.

SmartDriving Car Summit focuses on mobility for all

As autonomous vehicles approach widespread adoption, it’s critical that diverse groups collaborate on policies and other measures that ensure the technology benefits people most in need of transportation, according to participants in a conference at Princeton.

Readying for graduation, Princeton engineering students reflect on their senior thesis experience

As their thesis deadlines approached, seniors in the School of Engineering and Applied Science reflected on what they’ve gained by tackling a demanding yearlong research project, along with their coursework and other activities.

Autonomous vehicles could be an environmental boon or disaster, depending on public policy

Widespread use of autonomous vehicles (AVs) could either massively increase or drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions depending, in large part, on public policy, according to new research from Princeton University.

Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership Funds Research on Carbon Capture and Storage

Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership (E-ffiliates) will support two projects this year, both focused on optimizing the capture and storage of carbon, which would otherwise contribute to climate change as atmospheric carbon dioxide.  

From math to meaning: Artificial intelligence blends algorithms and applications
