Meng Wang, assistant professor of electrical, computer, and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has won a Young Investigator Program (YIP) award from the Army Research Office (ARO). Wang will use the three-year, $360,000 grant to develop methods to extract useful information from complex data that could lead to improved image classification and object identification in modern surveillance systems.
The graduate programs in engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are once again considered among the best in the United States, according to the U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings released this week.
Data is a critical building block of a fast-approaching future, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is ensuring that all of its students are adept architects with the adoption of a new institute-wide requirement in data education.
Energy and sustainability are among the grand challenges facing humanity. Faculty research in electric power engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has led to groundbreaking discoveries and innovative contributions in all aspects of generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electric energy. Especially today, the ongoing research contributions of three faculty in the broad electric power engineering program at Rensselaer has the potential to make power systems more resil…
Can environmental toxins disrupt circadian rhythms – the biological “clock” whose disturbance is linked to chronic inflammation and a host of human disorders? Research showing a link between circadian disruption and plankton that have adapted to road salt pollution puts the question squarely on the table.
The International Symposium on Assistive Technology for Music and Art (ISATMA) will be held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute October 20-22.
