On August 30, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering (MABE) received a $50,000 donation from the Denso North American Foundation to support its Rolling Hybrid Vehicle Laboratory.
This past summer forty Tickle College of Engineering students took University of Tennessee engineering courses as part of four faculty-led programs. The faculty–led programs are designed to combine technical courses with international experiences in a way that provides course credit while minimizing schedule concerns for engineering students.
It sounds lame but I feel I got to see a more personal side of London by frequenting these places. The variety and quality of the food at some of these markets is hard to beat, especially for the prices. Borrough Market (shown at right), just south of the Thames, blew me away the first Saturday I went. So much food.
Even with all the fun classes and thrilling group activities, there was plenty of time to explore other areas outside of London. One weekend I took a relaxing trip to the Isle of Wight, famous for its natural beauty and nicknamed “England in Miniature”.
During our time in London, the faculty leaders decided to give us a long weekend to travel by taking Monday off of class. This year we decided to head to Dublin, Ireland.
We left Friday, June 14, after class. We took a train to Holyhead, Wales. From Holyhead, we got on a ferry that took us to Dublin. The trip was very tiresome, because we were traveling during the middle of the night. We arrived in Dublin around 6 a.m. on Saturday.
A major gift from two UT Knoxville graduates has established the first-ever joint faculty positions between the Colleges of Engineering and Business Administration.
Celeste Baine, a biomedical engineer, director of the Engineering Education Service Center, and the award-winning author of over twenty books on engineering careers and education, will be a guest speaker at the College of Engineering’s Gala Celebration of 175 years of engineering instruction at the University of Tennessee on Friday, October 4, 2013.
University of Tennessee College of Engineering faculty members Dr. Ramki Kalyanaraman, an associate professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBE), and Dr. Gerd Duscher, an associate professor in MSE, have collaborated on an entry for the 2013 “Create the Future” sustainable-technology design contest.
Six students from the Tickle College of Engineering (TCE) embarked on an adventure to Peru from August 10-20, 2013. The trip was concentrated in the city of Cuzco as well as in the Manu Biosphere Reserve in the Amazon Rainforest, both designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
My Peruvian adventure began in the Lima airport, a very intimidating place if you speak little Spanish (like me). The minute I reached the main terminal, I was swarmed by taxi drivers insisting that I needed a cab. After politely saying “no” and receiving the boarding pass for my connecting flight to Cuzco, I headed to the departure gate.
