Managing data flow to boost cyber-physical system performance

Researchers in NC State’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) have developed a suite of algorithms to improve the performance of cyber-physical systems — from autonomous vehicles to smart power grids — by balancing each component’s need for data with how fast that data can be sent and received.

New approach to DNA data storage makes system more dynamic, scalable

Researchers in the College have developed a fundamentally new approach to DNA data storage systems, giving users the ability to read or modify data files without destroying them and making the systems easier to scale up for practical use.

Summer K-12 engineering camps go virtual

When COVID-19 eliminated the 2020 in-person summer engineering camps held annually on the NC State campus, The Engineering Place (TEP) team quickly jumped into action and adapted the face-to-face summer engineering camps into online virtual camps.

Asheville’s Minerals Research Laboratory remains rock solid

The Minerals Research Laboratory (MRL) was established in Asheville in 1946 as a joint venture between the state of North Carolina and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). TVA eventually discontinued its support of the laboratory, and in 1954 the operation was transferred to the then-School of Engineering. The MRL is still a part of the College of Engineering; since 2004 it has been part of Industry Expansion Solutions, the College’s extension service.

Engineering a more inclusive campus

On a recent campus visit, alumnus Timothy Humphrey spent time with the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity and learned more about what the office’s programs deliver to students. “It really hit home for me,” he said. “Meeting some current students and seeing them take advantage of OIED’s resources made me say this group could really use some help.”
