Institute for Complex Engineered Systems to feature nanotechnology research projects at open house

Carnegie Mellon Universtity : 22 August, 2006  (Technical Article)
Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Complex Engineered Systems will host an open house to display ongoing collaborative research projects, including nanotechnology projects and other cutting-edge research funded by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance.
At Carnegie Mellon, ICES researchers are working to create new products and processes important to Pennsylvania's economy. Some of these new products and processes include pervasive computing, new tissue engineering therapies and novel engineering designs like those used in eWatch technology, a wearable array of sensors that are so precise they can exchange sensitive electronic information during a simple handshake.

With their partners at Lehigh University's Center for Advanced Technology for Large Structural Systems, Carnegie Mellon researchers are working to create dependable new infrastructure for bridges and buildings, more efficient fuel cells, new environmental technologies that could ultimately improve water quality, and technologies that take advantage of large sensor networks that make computers run safer and faster.

'The open house is designed to bring together the best minds from industry, government and academia to discuss and review both cutting-edge research and our extensive outreach programs,' said Cristina Amon, head of ICES and a mechanical engineering professor at Carnegie Mellon.

Many of the outreach and research projects unveiled at the open house are funded by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Technology Alliance, a Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development program designed to provide economic benefit to Pennsylvania through knowledge transfer, the discovery of new technologies and the retention of college-educated students.

In addition to research demos, the ICES open house will feature several speakers, including Rebecca Bagley, deputy secretary for the Technology Investment Office of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, and Bill Flanagan, executive vice president and chief public affairs officer for the Allegheny Conference on Community Development.

Since 1997, ICES has pursued multidisciplinary research on complex systems with a cache of industrial partners from a variety of industry sectors, including transportation, aerospace and telecommunications. More than 130 Carnegie Mellon faculty, staff and graduate and undergraduate students are involved with ICES research projects that have received more than $10 million yearly from both government and private funding.
