“The College of Engineering and Computer Science is currently experiencing an exciting and challenging phase,” said Dr. Ahad Nasab. “There’s strong momentum in the college’s research areas of machine learning, quantum computing, hypersonic flights, smart power grids, transportation logistics and intelligent robotics. We also remain steadfast in our commitment to preparing the next generation of skilled professionals to meet the evolving demands of the industry in the Southeast region of the country.”
At this month’s annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board (TRB), part of the National Academies of Sciences, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga was a sponsor of a research data challenge drawing competitors from across the country.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has awarded $1.1 million for research to enhance detection of “vulnerable road users” within the Smart City Corridor overseen by the Center for Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) at UTC. In addition to the funding awarded through the FHWA “Exploratory Advance Research” program, UTC and research partners will invest $300,000 to enable additional technology along the M.L. King Boulevard site to detect “vulnerable road users”—essentially, anyone not traveling inside an enclosed vehicle.
UTC among seven U.S. universities to receive renewed NSF funding for cybersecurity workforce development projects
The UTC program, “Collaborative Research: CyberCorps® Scholarship for Service: Strengthening the National Cybersecurity Workforce With Integrated Learning of AI/ML and Cybersecurity,” is among seven American university programs selected for renewed funding of more than $24 million from NSF over the next four years.
On Thursday, May 4, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga College of Engineering and Computer Science will open its second mechatronics laboratory—the Robotics, Intelligent Systems and Control Lab. The new lab will focus on two intertwined areas: Artificial intelligence and mobile mechatronics, also called mobile robots.
A memorandum of understanding between UTC and CO.LAB provides students and scientists with the University’s Center for Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) with unprecedented opportunities to apply today’s knowledge in Smart City research to find solutions to society-scale challenges.
Hong Qin, a UTC professor of computer science, has been selected to advance to the second of three rounds of review in the U.S. National Academy of Medicine’s Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge.
