    We had a great time kicking off the new academic year last night at Welcome Bulldog Engineers! New and returning students were able to learn about student organizations, experiential learning opportunities, academic resources, and the new instructional labs in the Driftmier Engineering Center.

    Happy 1785 Day! The UGA Student Alumni Association is calling all Dawgs to make a donation of $17.85 today. $7.85 goes to the Georgia Fund, which supports scholarships, and the remaining amount can be designated to a cause, school or college or other campus initiative of your choice.

    Students can join the 1785 Day Celebration at Tate Plaza today from 9 am - 4 pm. There will be free t-shirts and food.

    As a SAA member, students can enjoy exclusive alumni networking events, like Big Dawg Brunch and Dinner with a Dozen Dawgs, member-only gifts at spirit days and other events, and a tailgate with Uga X during SAA Beat Week.

    Tick tock tick tock! ⏰ University of Georgia researchers, including the College of Engineering's Leidong Mao, provide evidence for the first time that individual cells have clocks.

    To search for these properties in individual cells, Jonathan Arnold and Heinz-Bernd Schüttler in UGA's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences established a multidisciplinary team with faculty from four labs—genetics, physics, engineering and biochemistry.

    Mao, an associate professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, developed the microfluidic devices used to examine cells at different scales.

    We're excited to welcome alumnus William Castrillon back to campus as our first "Day in the Life" guest of the semester on Sept. 18. William graduated with a bachelor's degree in environmental engineering in 2017 and founded his own start-up, Su Casa Energy Consulting, in 2018. His company helps clients save energy by using IoT devices and data visualization to identify and control energy waste in commercial buildings.

    During Day in the Life sessions, students can connect with UGA College of Engineering alumni, learn about a typical day on the job, and explore current industry projects. Day in the Life is open to all UGA Engineering students and a meal will be served to all registered guests.

    William will meet with students from 12:20 - 1:20 p.m. in the Driftmier Engineering Center. Registration is required and dress is business casual.

    Please note space is limited to 15 students and spots are available on a first come first serve basis.

    UGA Research

    The University of Georgia College of Engineering shared a post.

    Dan Geller, a co-founder of Athens-based Kindercore Vinyl, also holds another significant and rare title - "Triple Dawg."

    Geller received his bachelor's degree in biochemistry from UGA in 1996, his master's degree in biological engineering in 1999, but then waited 18 years before getting his Ph.D. in engineering.

    “My life has been very weird,” laughed Geller. “I thought I would become a professor. But then all this music business got in the way.”

    Fun Fact Friday: the University of Georgia College of Engineering was created in 2012. Since then, enrollment has grown from approximately 600 students to more than 2,400 today. Over the same period, the college’s research expenditures have increased by more than 300%.

    A team of students from the University of Georgia College of Engineering finished among the best in the world in the 2019 ASHRAE Design Competition and Applied Engineering Challenge.

    Keshav Bhat, Ike Emedosi, Rashaan Fowles, Hank Rittiner, Ryan Ruff and Morgan Sutter placed third in the Integrated Sustainable Building Design category of the annual competition. Thomas Lawrence, a professor of practice in the College of Engineering, is the ASHRAE student chapter’s faculty advisor.

    The UGA team’s project, along with other award winners, will be shared during the 2020 ASHRAE Winter Conference, Feb. 1 – 5 in Orlando.

    New academic year. New digs. Students and faculty are settling in to the newly renovated Driftmier Engineering Center on the first day of fall semester.

    The College of Engineering's Hitesh Handa has been selected as one of UGA’s two inaugural Innovation Fellows for fall 2019. The program is designed to help faculty translate their ideas into solutions and products that will improve lives and communities around the world. Handa, an assistant professor in the School of Chemical, Materials and Biomedical Engineering, focuses on developing new biocompatible coating materials for medical implant applications.
