Congrats class of 2013!
Come celebrate your upcoming commencement with Stanford Engineering.
Join us in the SEQ on June 12 from 3-5 pm.
Enjoy some yummy ice cream and a pick up your senior gift -- a luggage tag for all those new adventures you're going to have!

President Hennessy, Jerry Yang and 200 others toast GPS pioneer and wife for lifetime achievements and gift that will fund a state-of-the-art research environment and two professorships in the School of Engineering.
In the golden sun of a pristine Stanford afternoon, James J. Spilker, Jr. stepped to the podium before the building that bears the names of he and his wife, Anna Marie. It was a capstone moment for two lives that began humbly, one in the working class streets Philadelphia and the other in post-war refugee camps of Germany, but which reached great heights.

New synthetic nanoparticle could disinfect, depollute, and desalinate contaminated water and then get removed magnetically.
Among its many talents, silver is an antibiotic. Titanium dioxide is known to glom on to certain heavy metals and pollutants. Other materials do the same for salt. In recent years, environmental engineers have sought to disinfect, depollute, and desalinate contaminated water using nanoscale particles of these active materials. Engineers call them nanoscavengers. The hitch from a technical standpoint is that it is nearly impossible to reclaim the nanoscavengers once in the water.

EdX will be available as an open source learning platform on June 1. In support of that move, Stanford will integrate features of its existing Class2Go open source online learning platform into the edX platform.
Stanford University will collaborate with edX, the nonprofit online learning enterprise founded by Harvard and MIT, to advance the development of edX's open source learning platform and continue to provide free and open online learning tools for institutions around the world.

A Stanford team has designed an entirely new form of cooling panel that works even when the sun is shining. Such a panel could vastly improve the daylight cooling of buildings, cars and other structures by radiating sunlight back into the chilly vacuum of space.
Homes and buildings chilled without air conditioners. Car interiors that don't heat up in the summer sun. Tapping the frigid expanses of outer space to cool the planet. Science fiction, you say? Well, maybe not any more.

This annual award from NSF is the country’s highest award for scientists and engineers under age 35. Chiang completed his doctorate at Stanford in 2003 and now teaches at Princeton. He develops methods for improving wireless networks.
Mung Chiang, who earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering at the Stanford School of Engineering, has been awarded this year's Alan T. Waterman Award, the National Science Foundation has announced.
This annual award honors outstanding researchers under the age of 35 in any field of science or engineering that NSF supports. It is the country’s highest award for scientists in that age group. Chiang's achievements will be recognized with a $1-million award, spread over five years, to help further his research.

The Global Climate and Energy Project will award $6.6 million for research that leads to cleaner fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
New awards totaling $6.6 million from Stanford University’s Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) will advance research on clean-burning fuels and technologies for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The funding will be shared by seven research teams – six from Stanford and one from Carnegie Mellon University.
The seven awards bring the total number of GCEP-supported research programs to 104, with total funding of approximately $125 million since the project's launch in 2002.

Engineers at Stanford have developed a prototype single-fiber endoscope that improves the resolution of these much-sought-after instruments fourfold over existing designs. The advance could lead to an era of needle-thin, minimally invasive endoscopes able to view features out of reach of today’s instruments.
Engineers at Stanford have demonstrated a high-resolution endoscope that is as thin as a human hair with a resolution four times better than previous devices of similar design. The so-called micro-endoscope is a significant step forward in high-resolution, minimally invasive bio-imaging with potential applications in research and clinical practice. Micro-endoscopy could enable new methods in diverse fields ranging from study of the brain to early cancer detection.

Users of the new research application EmailValet grew comfortable with sharing their inbox with remote assistants, who perused the emails to create to-do lists. Developed by a Stanford Engineering doctoral student, the appication helped users complete twice as many tasks.
Most people are comfortable handing over their car keys to a complete stranger. Valet service is convenient, professional and reliable. But personal information, such as the contents of your email inbox, is a different story, right?
