Every day, engineering students and faculty at the University of Rhode Island turn big ideas into reality. Meet some of our Big Thinkers and explore how their transformative ideas shape our world.
A $30,000 study, conducted by three URI engineering students and faculty members, found that composite materials may be the long-term solution for Rhode Island’s infrastructure.
Chris Duhamel and Len Bradley, who serve as mentors for URI’s civil engineering senior Capstone design class, are among five URI alumni who have been promoted by DiPrete Engineering.
Paolo Stegagno accepted a position as an assistant professor in URI’s Department of Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering in 2017. He has been paired up with Chengzhi Yuan, an assistant professor in URI’s Department of Mechanical, Industrial and Systems Engineering, to work on research related to multi-robot systems.
Although extensive research has been conducted on the human brain, how the soft tissue mass inside our skull works and what it’s capable of remains very much a mystery. URI College of Engineering Assistant Professor Yalda Shahriari is trying to solve some of those mysteries in hopes of improving the quality of life for those […]
Kenle Chen, one of the newest faculty member of the Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Department in URI’s College of Engineering, brings a wealth of academic and industry experience to his new position.
URI Assistant Professor Bin Li feels right at home at URI, despite growing up and completing his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees more than 7,800 miles away in Xiamen, China. “Xiamen University, where I studied, is very close to a beautiful beach and like many of the URI buildings that surround the Quad, their oldest buildings […]
The URI College of Engineering’s Bliss Hall is one of more than a dozen structures on the Kingston Campus that comprise what is now recognized as a historic district by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s National Park Service.
Thanks to the education he received while completing his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from URI, Chris Bobba ’13 is prepared for the intense research that is required of an aspiring cardiothoracic surgeon.
Bin Li has received a $301,430 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop algorithms that will enable the performance of networks to not be affected by any traffic characteristics except the mean traffic load.
Inside Higher Ed published an article on URI’s new Artificial intelligence Lab. While AI laboratories have been cropping up more frequently on campuses in recent years, URI’s is unique because it is believed to be the first in the United States that is located in a university library.
