Researchers from Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering have discovered a way to extract rare-earth elements—essential ingredients for nearly all modern electronics—from the ash left behind at coal-burning power plants using a non-toxic ionic liquid.
A mollusk and shrimp are two unlikely marine animals that are playing a very important role in engineering. The bodies of both animals illustrate how natural features, like the structures of their bones and shells, can be borrowed to enhance the performance of engineered structures and materials, like bridges and airplanes.
In the first annual Entrepreneurial Impact Competition, the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering celebrated innovation and recognized two student teams with $5,000 prizes for their ideas to detect microplastics and disinfect drinking water.
Breaking the glass ceiling isn’t just for high-profile political figures. At Georgia Tech, we have women who are making new strides in a wide range of male-dominated fields, at all levels. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we have asked a few of them to share their journeys and achievements, along with their advice for other women who hope to one day lead at Georgia Tech and in the broader community.
Following an open call for entries from students in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, four finalists were selected for the final round of the first annual Entrepreneurial Impact Competition on Friday, March 19th at 4:30 p.m.
The American Concrete Institute Georgia Chapter has selected Luna Al-Hasani as the winner of its $5,000 Robert H. Kulman Student Scholarship and Graduate Student Daniel Benkeser has been selected as the recipient of the LaGrit F. "Sam" Morris Student Scholarship.
