Code of ethics doesn’t influence decisions of software developers
Research finds that ACM’s revised code of ethics does not appear to affect the decisions made by software developers.
Assessing how Florence affected the very ground we stand on
After Florence, experts moved in to assess the damage. NC State’s Brina Montoya was one of them.
Bottomley examines the soles of shoes in video, ‘Engineering Everywhere’
Dr. Laura Bottomley, director of Women in Engineering and The Engineering Place at NC State University, demonstrates “engineering is everywhere” by examining the soles of ever-present shoes. From ballet slippers to running shoes, Dr. Bottomley shows the engineering that goes into different types of soles to optimize performance.
New electric car charger is more efficient, 10 times smaller than current tech
A new electric vehicle fast charger is at least 10 times smaller than existing systems and wastes 60 percent less power during the charging process, without sacrificing the charging time.
In our labs
A helium neon laser, Nikon imaging lenses, Horiba micro-HR motorized monochromator, and a DLP-based arbitrary spectrum generator. These are just some of the optical sensing and spectral measurement tools you will find in the Optical Sensing Lab (OSL).
A bright idea
The NSF FREEDM Systems Center marks 10 years of innovation on how we use electricity.
Building a Legacy
Alumni and friends have a chance to make a lasting impact for the College.
Researchers propose a blockchain data network to boost manufacturing
Researchers in industrial and systems engineering are proposing the creation of a public, open-source network that uses blockchains — the technology behind cryptocurrencies — to share verifiable manufacturing data. The system could be used as a peer-to-peer network that allows companies to find small- and medium-sized manufacturers that are capable of producing specific components on a reliable basis.
New tech may make prosthetic hands easier for patients to use
Researchers have developed new technology for decoding neuromuscular signals to control powered, prosthetic wrists and hands. The work relies on computer models that closely mimic the behavior of the natural structures in the forearm, wrist and hand. The technology could also be used to develop new computer interface devices for applications such as gaming and computer-aided design (CAD).
National Security Agency renews Science of Security Lablet at NC State
NC State has again been awarded a Science of Security Lablet by the National Security Agency (NSA) to continue its work in developing the cybersecurity and privacy breakthroughs needed to safeguard cyberspace.
