Dean Andrea Goldsmith welcomes you to Princeton Engineering

In this video, Dean Andrea Goldsmith provides an overview of what makes Princeton Engineering special.

Top process systems engineer Christos Maravelias joins the faculty, expands energy systems research

Christos Maravelias, an expert in process systems engineering, has joined the Princeton faculty as of September 1, 2020. Maravelias is the Anderson Family Professor in Energy and the Environment and a professor of chemical and biological engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. 

Students step up summer research, with increased support, amid pandemic’s challenges

For undergraduates in the engineering school, summer often means a chance to apply their learning in new ways, whether conducting field research, working in industry or volunteering abroad. Last summer, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting many of these plans, some students’ research projects took them in unexpected directions.

Graduate students honored with Siebel Scholar awards

The Siebel Scholars Foundation has awarded Siebel Scholars fellowships to six Princeton University graduate students: Sotiris Apostolakis, Kyle Genova, Wei Hu, John Li and Divyarthi Mohan in computer science; and Joseph Hamill in chemical and biological engineering. Now in its 20th year, the program annually recognizes exceptional students from the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science, energy science and bioengineering.

Novel drug could be a powerful weapon in the fight against malaria and toxoplasmosis

Princeton researchers are making key contributions toward developing a promising new treatment for the widespread and devastating diseases toxoplasmosis and malaria.

The multiple benefits of a world without air conditioning

To demonstrate the effect of radiant cooling, Forrest Meggers, assistant professor of architecture and the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, and a team of researchers built a “Cold Tube,” in Singapore last year

Flipping light on-off turns bacteria into chemical factories

Working in E. coli, the workhorse organism for scientists to engineer metabolism, researchers developed a system that uses light to control one of the key genetic circuits needed to turn bacteria into chemical factories that produce valuable compounds such as the biofuel isobutanol.

Tough, timely and team-driven: 50 years of energy research

For a half-century, Princeton faculty members have been tackling critical environmental problems involving energy systems and decarbonization.

New tools catch and release cellular targets at the flip of a light switch

A Princeton team has developed a class of light-switchable, highly adaptable molecular tools with new capabilities to control cellular activities. The antibody-like proteins, called OptoBinders, have potential applications including protein purification, the improved production of biofuels, and new types of targeted cancer therapies.

Brangwynne named 2020 Blavatnik National Awards Laureate

Clifford Brangwynne, a biophysical engineer who transformed the way scientists see cell biology, has won the 2020 Blavatnik National Award in Life Sciences.
