Penn Engineering Doctoral Commencement Ceremony
Doors open for guest seating at 3:00 p.m.
MEAM Seminar: “Tribofilms at the Asperity Scale”
The presentation will start with an introduction to tribology. This term was first used in a 1965 UK government report which identified the economic loss due to preventable wear and poor friction performance. It helped bring together the diverse community of engineers and scientists that need to collaborate in order to tackle the complex interactions […]
MEAM/MSE Special Seminar: “Scalable Functional Phase Change Materials for Displays and Photonic Non-von Neumann Computing”
In electronics, doping silicon results in one of the most versatile functional materials ever employed. The pursuit of such functional materials in the optical domain is an area of great interest in the photonics community. I hope to convince you that whatever route photonics takes, a class of materials known as phase change materials, will […]
MSE Seminar: “Nanoscience and Quantum Information Science at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, a National Scientific User Facility”
MEAM Seminar: “Integrating Manufacturing and Topological Optimization for the Design of Architected Materials and Components”
Topology optimization has long been touted as a powerful tool capable of discovering innovative solutions to engineering design problems. It has been used to design ‘structures’ characterized at a range of length scales, from tens of microns (material architectures) to decameters (structures), for performance properties governed by a range of physics. Despite its tremendous potential […]
The Joy of Being Faculty: How to Apply for a Faculty Position
This professional development workshop is designed to provide Penn Engineering graduate students and postdocs with a richer understanding of what it is like to pursue a career in academia from those that have navigated the process successfully. Deputy Dean Kathleen J. Stebe (SEAS) will lead this extemporaneous panel discussions with a mix of both tenured […]
MSE Seminar: “Integrated Lithium Niobate Photonics”
MEAM Seminar: “Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials”
Material properties are governed by the chemical composition and spatial arrangement of constituent elements. Over the past decade, the field of architected materials has sought to design, fabricate, and demonstrate materials with performance that is fundamentally controlled by geometry at multiple length-scales rather than chemical composition alone. There have been many advancements ranging from the […]
