NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, and her Center for Nano-Immunoengineering have received a grant to work toward developing a new treatment for liver cancer by combining ablation with immunotherapy from a plant virus. This development will improve long-term results of ablation and,…

Researchers led by Nanoengineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, have developed a more targeted way to deliver pesticides to food crops. Using a plant virus as a nanocarrier will result in decreasing the amount of required pesticide and reducing the chemical accumulation in our food and water.…

NanoEngineering professor, Shirley Meng, along with other scientists from UC San Diego and Idaho National Laboratory, have discovered a noncystalline "glassy" lithium that had never previously been observed. This development was encountered while investigating the first moments of lithium…

NanoEngineering professor, Sheng Xu and his research lab have developed a new method to fabricate perovskites as single-crystal thin films.  This new method results in the perovskites showing fewer defects, enhanced stability and more efficiency for use in solar cells and optical devices.

Congratulations to NanoEngineering Ph.D. candidate, Mr. Lennart Langouche (Fraley Lab), who was recently selected as one of the five institutional nominees for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting Fellows for 2021! The Lindau meetings bring together 600 university students and postdoctoral fellows…
The Siebel Scholars program recognizes the most talented students in the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science, bioengineering and energy science. The students are selected based on outstanding academic performance and leadership, and each receive a $35,000 award toward…
Congratulations to Dr. Erik Austin Wu (Laboratory for Energy Storage and Conversion), who recently received his Ph.D. in NanoEngineering. His dissertation defense on "Materials Engineering for Compatible Chemistries in Sodium Solid-State-Batteries and Thin-Film Solid Oxide Fuel Cells"was presented…
Congratulations to Dr. Yusheng Lei (Xu Research Group), who recently received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering. His dissertation defense on "Single-Crystal Metal Halide Perovskites Electronics" was presented on September 16, 2020. The department wishes Dr. Lei all the best in his new Post-Doc…
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Matthew Davies (Laboratory for Energy Storage and Conversion), who recently received his Ph.D. in NanoEngineering. His dissertation defense on "Multiscale Approach Towards the Development and Usage of Electrochemical Energy Storage"was presented on September 3, 2020.…

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!
