Congratulations to NanoEngineering professor, Dr.

Research findings by NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Darren Lipomi, and his lab provide insights into designing tactile materials and haptic interfaces that can recreate realistic touch sensations, for applications such as electronic skin, prostheses and medical robotics.  The findings were…

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Shirley Meng and colleagues have discovered the reason behind the failure of lithium metal batteries. UC San Diego researchers found that bits of lithium metal deposits are breaking off from the anode surface during discharging and being trapped where the battery…

Researchers led by NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Ert. Cubukcu, have developed a wave guide that is three layers of atoms thin - the thinnest optical device in the world. To create it, researchers used advanced micro- and nanofabrication techniques. This breakthrough could lead to the…

Congratulations to NanoEngineering professor, Darren Lipomi for being named recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). This award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on scientists and engineers in recognition for their contributions…

NanoEngineering professor, Shaochen Chen and his team of researchers have discovered a way to use 3D printing technology to create customized implants that can boost the power of cell-based therapies to repair injured spinal cords. Implants are designed as guides to keep new neural extensions…

The Department of NanoEngineering would like to congratulate Professor Shaochen Chen for being awarded the Best Undergraduate Instructor in the Jacobs School of Engineering.  Dean Albert Pisano was on hand to personally present Dr. Chen with his award. 
Congratulations to Dr. Christopher M. Coaty (Electrochemical Materials Science Laboratory), who recently received his Ph.D in NanoEngineering. His defense on "Conversion Reaction Synthesis: A Versatile and Scalable Route to Nanoporous Transition Metals" was presented on September 10, 2019. We are…

Congratulations to Dr. Chen Zheng (Materials Virtual Lab), who recently received his Ph.D in NanoEngineering. His defense on "Machine Learning Big Materials Data" was presented on August 28, 2019. Dr. Zheng has been with the Department of NanoEngineering graduate program since Fall 2014. The…
  Congratulations to Dr. Zhuoying Zhu (Materials Virtual Lab), who recently received her Ph.D in NanoEngineering. Her defense on "Design and Optimization of Alkali Supersonic Conductors for Solid-State Batteries using First-Principles Calculations" was presented on August 27, 2019. We are very…

NanoEngineering Program Receives ABET Accreditation

The NanoEngineering program (B.S.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.orgABET is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. UC San Diego's NanoEngineering program is the first of its kind in the nation to receive this accreditation. Our NanoEngineering students can feel confident that their education meets global standards and that they will be prepared to enter the workforce worldwide.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public. Please visit the ABET website for more information on why accreditation matters.

Congratulations to the NanoEngineering department and students!
