MEE ASHARE scholarship winners 2018
Three MEE Students Awarded ASHRAE Scholarships
UIC’s Master of Energy Engineering (MEE) students continue their winning ways. Students Hardik Miyani, Lisa White and Zaki Mafraji were recently named winners of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Illinois Chapter 2018 Scholarships.Miyani and White were awarded $1,500, and Mafraji received $750. The students were three of only five people to receive the scholarships. UIC students have been awarded scholarships every year since 2011.The scholarships are geared toward encouraging undergraduates to pursue studies in engineering, science or mathematics that would be fundamental for a career in the heating, ventilating, refrigeration and air conditioning field. The scholarships are awards each year and based on academic merit, stewardship and student participation in ASHRAE.“Winning the Chicago ASHRAE scholarships is…

Celebrating the Life of Distinguished Professor Emeritus Faydor Litvin
In Memoriam: Professor Faydor L. LitvinJanuary 21, 1914 – April 26, 2017On April 26, 2017, the scientific community of mechanical engineers worldwide lost a renowned scientist and educator who dedicated his life to the development of the modern theory of gearing and made enormous contributions to the development of the theory of mechanisms.Professor Faydor Litvin was recognized as an authority in kinematics and the theory of gearing. A whole epoch in the theory of gearing is concerned with the name of Professor Litvin. He is the author of one of the most fundamental and cited works in the field — a well-known monograph, The Theory of Gearing, which underwent six editions.Born in Russia, Professor Litvin graduated from Leningrad Polytechnic Institute…

UIC Robotics Summer Camp Autonomous Car
Registration is open for UIC’s Robotics Summer Camp
Registration is open for UIC’s Robotics Summer Camp. Hosted by the College of Engineering, the summer camp is set for June 25 to July 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the college’s Engineering Research Facility, 842 W. Taylor St, Chicago IL 60607. It is open to qualified middle and high school students with an interest in robotics technology. The summer camp is an opportunity for students to learn in a research laboratory environment and get hands-on experience with state-of-art robotics technology. During the two-week session, students will build a self-driving four-wheeled Mecanum car kit, which has four independently driven wheels via DC motors and gear reducers. They will install sensors needed for a self-driving car, ultrasonic range/obstacle sensor, line…

Researchers Prove that Multiple Elements Can Be Perfectly Mixed at Atomic Scales
What was thought to be impossible, was just proven to be possible!Researchers in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) used an atomic resolution transmission electron microscope available at UIC to prove that up to eight metallic elements can be perfectly mixed into a single phase or structure  in nanoparticle morphology with dimensions below hundred nanometer.. These nanoparticles produced by thermal shock at the University of Maryland defy the previous thoughts that immiscible multielement atoms cannot be perfectly mixed at subnanoscale. Their results are published in the paper "Carbo-Thermal Shock Synthesis of High Entropy Alloy Nanoparticles" in the journal Science.The general area of research is related to a new class of materials that…
