Fotis Sotiropoulos, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University, has been selected by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI) to receive the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) 2017 Hunter Rouse Hydraulic Engineering Award. The award recognizes one individual each year who has made outstanding contributions to hydraulics and waterways. Sotiropoulos was recognized for his leadership in waterways research and application, and for generating a quantum leap forward in the development and application of computational fluid dynamics for waterways. “Sotiropoulos’ groundbreaking research in hydraulics has set the standard for how people will treat…

Department of Computer Science Professor Long Lu has received a grant from the U.S. Army Research Office for his latest work on web-mobile integration and security. The professor’s research aims to develop tools and techniques that will enable these integrations to be more secure, and eventually create hardware-assisted protection that will be used in situations involving high-level sensitive information. Despite the fact that web-mobile integration is one of the most widely used and quickly growing models, there have been very few studies done on its security implications. That lack of comprehensive understanding has thus far made it very difficult to…

PhD student Qiyuan Wu has received the 2017 Graduate Student Award in Environmental Chemistry from the American Chemical Society (ACS). As the world’s largest scientific society, the ACS awards up to 20 students each year who show promise in research and the potential to make an impact in the field of environmental chemistry. This is Wu’s third award from the ACS, and his achievements highlight the continued excellence in environmental research taking place at Stony Brook’s College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “Qiyuan developed his research projects independently, exhibiting creativity, thoughtfulness and hard work,” said Alexander Orlov, Associate Professor of Materials Science…

Dennis Sosa, a senior in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS), is the recipient of this year’s Kenneth Short Scholarship. He is majoring in Computer Engineering with a minor in Computer Science, is a first-generation college student and part of Stony Brook’s Educational Opportunity Program (EOP/AIM). Receiving the Kenneth Short Scholarship has helped Sosa pay for his tuition, which has allowed him more time to focus on his studies. Last year he worked two part-time jobs as a tutor and in dining services to manage expenses. Sosa was also one of only five students from CEAS to be selected as…

A team at Stony Brook University, led by the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS), has developed a comprehensive program to work with school districts on Long Island to better prepare students for careers in engineering, with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Grid, a corporate partner. Research has shown that early exposure to science and engineering can significantly increase student awareness of engineering as a career pathway. The National Research Council’s Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) aims to create a national foundation for all students to have a solid K-12 science education. But students need additional preparation and technical…

Adding to the university’s record of success in nurturing the nation’s brightest young minds, three of the 40 finalists in the prestigious Regeneron (formerly Intel) competition were mentored by Stony Brook faculty. Stony Brook-mentored finalists in this year’s competition are: Emily Peterson, Smithtown High School, Port Jefferson, NY. Her project, Lecithin-Retinol Acyl Transferase in Squamous Cell Carcinoma: The Relationship Between Oncology and Wound Repair, was mentored by Mariam Rafailovich, Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and and Marcia Simon, Professor and Director for Graduate Studies, School of Dental Medicine. Arjun…

The Stony Brook University Garcia Center for Polymers at Engineered Interfaces, with the help of undergraduates from the Stony Brook Program in Chemical and Molecular Engineering, part of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, together with Queens College hosted the 20th Annual Science Open House for High School Students on January 5. The event, which occupies the entire Queens College Science Building, hosts high school students from schools across the New York Metropolitan area, and aims to encourage and inspire them to explore science as a possible career. The program emphasizes empowerment through science regardless of socioeconomic or ethnic background and that…

School administrators from all over Long Island will attend Stony Brook University’s Science and Engineering Education Outreach Symposium on Tuesday, January 17.

The symposium will include information about Stony Brook’s engineering and science outreach programs, with opportunities for students as well as for counselors and teachers. Following breakfast, Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. and College of Engineering & Applied Sciences Dean Fotis Sotiropoulos will give opening remarks. For more information about the symposium, please contact…

Professor Giles and Students Initiate Matching Gift This past May, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences graduated the first class in its Department of Civil Engineering, with 100% student placement in engineering positions and ongoing studies. Graduates secured positions in some of the highest-profile engineering firms and engineering schools in the country, including: AECOM Turner Construction Arcadis General Dynamics Metropolitan Transit Authority NYS Department of Transportation Cameron Engineering Prime Engineering Fulton Engineering Virginia Tech RPI The Stony Brook Career Center supported the graduates and aggressively recruited civil engineering companies to attend the Career Fair. In an inspiring display of…

Nusnin Akter, a Materials Science and Chemical Engineering graduate student, won the first place poster award for her research, “2D-Zeolite for the Argon Trap,” at the fifth annual Brookhaven National Lab (BNL) Early Career Researcher Symposium, presented by the Association of Students and Postdocs at BNL on December 13. This symposium is a showcase of the pioneering research that is performed by graduate students and postdocs at BNL. Akter is mentored by Stony Brook University Professor Taejin Kim and Brookhaven National Lab’s Jorge Anibal Boscoboinik, “One of the things I dreamed of as I planned for my graduate studies was to…
