Increasingly, our crowded urban environments will require innovative technology to render them more livable, sustainable, and climate-resilient.
Or, in other words, smart.

Reconnections, Reflections, and Next-Gen Innovations

Seven decades of Columbia engineers returned to alma mater for Alumni Weekend 2019, three busy days of fellowship, memories, and deep dives into the groundbreaking innovations and research on today’s campus.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

Researchers including Kyle Bishop of Chemical Engineering trained a neural network model to plan synthetic routes to any target molecule, optimizing user-specified objectives such as cost, time, and sustainability.
A team led by Elisa Konofagou from Biomedical Engineering has developed a technique that could open up new ways to facilitate targeted drug delivery into the brain, enabling drugs to treat brain diseases more focally. The group just received FDA approval to conduct clinical trials with their device.

STUDENT HIGHLIGHTS

At Senior Design Expo 2019, teams spanning the School and beyond shared their far-reaching innovations and research with an enthusiastic crowd of peers, professors, alumni, and the public.
After years in the lab exploring heat transfer on the nanoscale, doctoral candidate Arvind Srinivasan MS'16 found himself in rural Uganda thinking very differently about energy.
As the winner of a Fulbright scholarship, biomedical engineer and public health researcher Samuel Castro ’19 will soon spend nine months in Mozambique exploring how to reduce transmission of HIV from pregnant mothers to their fetuses.

FACULTY HIGHLIGHTS

Dan Lacker of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research has won this year’s Early Career Paper Prize from the SIAM Activity Group on Financial Mathematics and Engineering.
Columbia's Laboratory for Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering—headed by Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic of Biomedical Engineering—recently licensed their organ-on-a-chip technology. Over the past four years, Columbia Engineering has produced 31 startups, illustrating the School's pivotal role in the university's larger entrepreneurial culture.
