A NanoEngineering team, led by professor Kenneth Vecchio and his Ph.D. student Kevin Kaufmann, have developed a machine learning algorithm technique that can determine crystal structures in a less labor-intensive manner.

Professor Oscar Vazquez-Mena, a NanoEngineering professor, was named an Emerging Scholar for 2020 by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine. This honor is in recognition of his work with underrepresented students as part of his program called Bridges to Education. He is also one…

NanoEngineering professor, Marc Meyers, along with his group and a group from UC Berkeley, collected hair samples from numerous mammals, including humans, to study their characteristics. Results showed that most hairs share similar structures but differ in how they break, indicating thin hair to…

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Sheng Xu, and a team of engineers, have developed a new method that may improve efficiency and fabricate longer lasting perovskite solar cells, LEDs and photodetectors. This new method of growing strained crystals could help make significant changes in the material…

NanoEngineering Professor, Joseph Wang and fellow senior authors have developed a new type of micromotor that can move around individual cells and microscopic particles without damaging them. These new micromotors, which are powered by ultrasound and steered by magnets, could present new…

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!
