Dr. Steven Allen, PhD, described his undergraduate self as a bog-standard student with a fairly unremarkable track record, but the research professor - who joins the department faculty this fall - has built himself a considerably remarkable track record over the past ten years. He holds two degrees and ever-growing expertise in MRI technology and biomedical engineering.

Nanotechnology Journal will soon be publishing a research paper detailing the findings of several ECE students. The team, led by Dr. Aaron Hawkins and consisting of ECEn students Zach Walker, Tanner Wells, and Kalliyan Lay as well as collaborators Mohammad Sampad and Holger Schmidt from the UC Santa Cruz School of Engineering, created a new technique for fabricating membranes so thin that they measure their width exclusively in nanometers.

Nate Vance is a senior in the Computer Engineering program. After his internship at Apple was turned into a remote position, he decided to use his computer engineering skills to work on personal projects as well. He developed his own simulated race system to practice skeleton racing (yes, like in the Olympics!). His system is made up of an electric longboard, a proximity sensor, and a race timer. Swipe to watch Nate's project in action!

Utah is home to many universities whose engineers have pulled project ideas straight out of sci-fi movies. BYU has worked on technology for a “Princess Leia” hologram, a Star Trek-style holodeck, and origami-based robotics that fold out similarly to Iron Man’s suit. Utah State University also has researchers who worked on Spiderman-like gloves that could climb walls.
