Two recent rankings have placed the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering among the world’ s top universities.

San Diego, CA, August 25, 2010 -- NanoEngineers at the University of California, San Diego are designing new types of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries that could be used in a variety of NASA space exploration projects – and in a wide range of transportation and consumer applications.

On July 26, 2010, Marc André Meyers received the Materials and Society Award at the Opera House (Municipal Theater) of Rio de Janeiro. The award was given by Prof. T. Massalski, Executive Secretary of the Acta Materialia Inc. Board of Governors.

UC San Diego nanoengineering professor Jen Cha is using a $300,000 grant from the U.S Defense Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop nanoscale materials for biological and chemical sensing for health and environmental monitoring. 

The technology, developed by nano-engineering professor Joseph Wang of University of California San Diego and his team, breaks new ground in the field of intelligent textiles and is part of shift in focus in healthcare from hospital-based treatment to home-based management. 

The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) announced the election of 55 new members of the College of Fellows. The newly elected Fellows were nominated and approved by current Fellows of the College, consisting of over 900 engineers and scientists.
