Engineering Speakers

Engineering Speakers

              The Owen Entrepreneurship Center invites Engineering faculty to give talks about the work they are doing in the engineering School.  Talks cover a variety of topics:

1.       The impact of muon activity on the design of computer chips. Muons are particles emitted by the sun that are the size of electrons.  These muons pass through the earth and come out the other side.  The issue for engineers is that computer chips are so small now that a muon can pass through a chip and knock an electron off the path it is on in the chip.  This generates an error, but these errors occur about 1 per billion cycles on a chip.  So the financial services industry is very interested in this problem since they run several billion cycles per day on their computers.

2.       Another engineer uses light to assess the probability that a patient has skin cancer.  It is a very cool technology that is roughly equivalent to shining a light on the skin and getting a digital readout of the condition of the skin.

3.       An overview of robotics research at Vanderbilt.  The speaker talked about the many types of research taking place at Vanderbilt in the field of robotics.

4.      The subject of nano technology provided material for a talk; in this world researchers study how to manipulate particles that are one billionth of a meter in size.  This research seeks to develop technologies for diagnostic and research applications at the molecular level in biology with applications to eye problems.
