The University of Georgia College of Engineering

The University of Georgia College of Engineering As part of America's first public university, the UGA College of Engineering is an emerging leader in teaching, research and service.
(22)

Founded in 1785, the University of Georgia is the nation’s first state chartered university and the birthplace of American public higher education. The College of Engineering is proud to be a part of UGA’s distinguished heritage as well as a dynamic part of the University’s future. ENGINEERING + LIBERAL ARTS The College of Engineering is one of the fastest growing programs at UGA and one of the fastest growing public colleges of engineering in the nation. Since our founding in 2012, enrollment has grown to more than 2,000 students. Students and faculty alike are attracted to our setting in a comprehensive, land-grant, research institution that’s consistently ranked among the 20 best public universities in the nation. INNOVATION + DISCOVERY Built around a model that transcends traditional academic boundaries, the College offers eight undergraduate and seven graduate degree programs. Our research is centered in three Innovation and Discovery Clusters that bring together faculty and students from a wide variety of disciplines. Experiential learning – co-ops, internships, study abroad and undergraduate research – means graduates aren’t simply prepared for the workplace, they’re prepared to lead.

Mission: The College of Engineering is using an interdisciplinary approach for preparing students to engage in critical issues through careers in leadership and professional practice, and addresses the challenges facing society with collaborative research in technologies and concepts that will transform Georgia, our nation and our world.

Congratulations to this year's recipients of the UGA College of Engineering's Merit Awards!

Mahtab Heydari, a senior mechanical engineering and UGA Honors student, is the recipient of the Merit Award for Service. During her time at UGA, Mahtab has volunteered with several community organizations, served as a Student Ambassador, held leadership positions in the Society of Women Engineers, and worked with the UGA Center for Leadership and Service as a Dawg Camp Extended Orientation Counselor.

The Merit Award for Athletics goes to Darryn Pasqua, a junior mechanical engineering major and a pitcher on the UGA baseball team. Darryn has excelled in the classroom and on the baseball diamond. A member of the 2019 Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, Darryn has worked as an engineering intern at Fabric Sources International in Dalton during baseball's off-season.

Emily Nieves is the recipient of this year's Merit Award for Research. A senior biological engineering major, Emily has worked on quantitative systems pharmacology projects that involve modeling the effect of drugs on the kidney, primarily in people with diabetes. This work led to an internship with the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, where she was the only undergraduate intern in the company's quantitative clinical pharmacology department.

Many businesses are formed to solve problems for others, but one engineering student’s prize-winning idea spurred from a challenge he faced in his own kombucha business.

Nick Robertson, this year’s University of Georgia Food, Agribusiness and Entrepreneurial Initiative (FABricate) winner, started Rare Combinations to develop an efficient, affordable alcohol percentage detector for beverage producers. The senior biochemical engineering major will receive a $10,000 investment toward his business from the contest.

Jack Bush wanted to leave his mark at the University of Georgia.

Not content to just be a College of Engineering ambassador and member of the 2018 Homecoming court, Bush had more in mind.

In fall 2019, Bush, who will be a spring Commencement speaker, gave out the first Bush Engineering Scholarship for minorities interested in engineering.

We commit to teamwork. The UGA College of Engineering and the Instrument Design and Fabrication Shop, a unit of UGA’s Office of Research, are building protective medical face shields for the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance. The Alliance is working with Emory University's School of Medicine to launch a large-scale blood draw project for frontline Centers for Disease Control and Prevention staff looking for COVID-19 antibodies. UGA received Georgia CTSA's request last Friday and delivered the face shields Monday morning. Photos of the Emory team getting ready for the project - and practicing proper social distancing protocols.

Bulldog Engineers are answering the call. We're working with colleagues across campus to create face shields for medical professionals in our community.

Commit to innovation: The University of Georgia College of Engineering and UGA’s Instrument Design and Fabrication shop, alongside UGA Libraries, have collaborated together to create COVID-19 face shields, which will help protect health care providers from droplets, aerosols and other contaminants while treating patients. UGA plans to deliver 200 face shields each to Athens' local hospitals and can produce more than 100 per day. https://t.uga.edu/5Pd

“Complicated.”

That’s how Kyle Johnsen, an associate professor in the UGA College of Engineering, described the intricate weaving of internet technologies that made it possible for the IEEE Virtual Reality 2020 conference last week to take place online. It’s the first major academic conference to leap completely into the digital world.

Johnsen was one of four general chairs for the IEEE VR 2020 conference. The event’s final registration was more than 2,000—quadruple what they would have expected for an in-person conference.

Technology developed by a UGA College of Engineering professor is being employed in the fight against COVID-19.

An Athens company is ramping up production of specialized, high-efficiency sprayers now in demand by hospitals, airlines, hotels and other businesses. The sprayers are based on electrostatic spraying technology developed by UGA Engineering's Ed Law.

The company is setting up shop in the Classic Center and hiring employees who are out of work since the center suffered a wave of event cancellations.

Our graduates commit to excellence: Katherine MacManus, a 2018 UGA Engineering biochemical engineering graduate, is a member of GE's prestigious Edison Engineering Development Program. Recently, she and other Edison Engineers participated in training at GE's Gas Turbine Outage Simulator. (Katherine is on the front row, second from the right.) The team learned firsthand about the physical process to service bearings, nozzles, shrouds, and combustion hardware on a 7F gas turbine, the same turbine used for testing and development of new service tools and processes. Great work, Katherine!
