Student Research Spotlight Series
Azeem Sharief, a chemical engineering major, is interested in how inhaled medication is delivered to lung tissue.
Yiming Wan is studying the use of drones in combination with smart or autonomous vehicles to optimize traffic flow.
Senior environmental engineering major Michael Rechsteiner researches biochar and how it can help sustain our environment.
This senior Civil Engineering major hopes her work will lead to the implementation of more natural methods to protect its shores, including planting marsh grass.
Undergraduate electrical engineering students Samuel Matylewicz and Jenny Defriece are working on vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, a pioneering transportation technology developed at UD.
Chemical engineering sophomore Erin Hogan is helping to develop the next generation of NASA spacesuits fit for a mission to Mars.
The University of Delaware believes that exceptionally capable and well-motivated students should be given a chance, while they are still beginners, to see and have a part in what is happening at the frontiers of knowledge today. Toward that end, undergraduates work as assistants or junior members of their faculty research teams. Preparing to do their own research, they have the opportunity to share in a professional researcher’s work.
The Science and Engineering Scholars Program combines the resources of the University’s science and engineering colleges and research centers, the Undergraduate Research Program, and industrial and government sponsors to give the selected students in-depth research apprenticeships in all areas of science and engineering
