A research team led by NanoEngineering professor Joseph Wang continues to advance wearable technology that can be beneficial in monitoring our health and behavior, especially for those managing chronic diseases.

NanoEngineering professor, Jesse Jokerst, is leading a project to develop a color-changing test strip that can be attached to masks and help detect the presence of COVID-19 through nanoparticles. By repurposing masks, Jokerst and his researchers hope that new infections can be quickly and easily…

Nano-engineers in Professor Shyue Ping Ong's Research Group have published a paper showing they can accurately predict property of materials by taking advantage of low quality data. This method results in more general and accurate models of properties and facilitates the screening of promising…

A shout of congratulations to Director of Chemical Engineering and NanoEngineering Professor, Dr. Liangfang Zhang for being named a 2020 fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). Induction into the NAI is the highest professional distinction given only to academic inventors. Dr. Zhang…

A research team led by NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, has developed enhanced probes. These probes, known as positive controls, could make it easier to validate rapid tests for COVID-19 across the globe. Not only are these positive controls secure and easy to manufacture, they have …

NanoEngineering Program Receives ABET Accreditation

The NanoEngineering program (B.S.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.orgABET is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. UC San Diego's NanoEngineering program is the first of its kind in the nation to receive this accreditation. Our NanoEngineering students can feel confident that their education meets global standards and that they will be prepared to enter the workforce worldwide.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public. Please visit the ABET website for more information on why accreditation matters.

Congratulations to the NanoEngineering department and students!
