2013 RESEARCH YEARBOOK
2013 Research Yearbook In collaboration with colleagues and students — and often in pursuit of solutions to global problems — the faculty of the College of Engineering extend knowledge on engineering’s many frontiers, including sensorimotor control, acoustic-to-articulator inversion systems, technologies for pediatric orthopaedic disabilities, fault-tolerant electric machines and drives, advanced prosthetic design, and energy-or-nutrient generating water remediation techniques. In addition to listing prominent honors, grants and publications from the 2012-2013 academic year, this section highlights a number of faculty members from the college whose research is breaking new ground and earning attention.
