Resolve Magazine: Volume 2, 2018

Come Together

Welcome to the Fall 2018 issue of Resolve—a magazine dedicated to research and educational innovation in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science at Lehigh University.

As this issue reaches our readers’ virtual and physical doorsteps, Lehigh is in the very early stages of a capital campaign that charts a bold course for our future. Given that the campaign focuses on areas of critical importance to our College’s future, my sincere hope is that every member of the Rossin College community considers lending their support to this important endeavor. There is no doubt that ours is an outstanding University that embodies innovation in undergraduate and graduate education, excellence in research and scholarship, and a true commitment to effecting positive change in our community and our world. And it is equally clear that Lehigh people are not the kind to sit back and relax. Our students, faculty, and alumni pride themselves on rolling up their sleeves, diving in, and getting the job done. It’s a mindset that pervades the University, one that is especially true of Lehigh engineers.

A Few Good Collaborators

Creating quantitative and computational modeling of complex food, energy and water (FEW) systems is the focus of a four-year, $500,000 grant that Lehigh Civil and Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor Ethan Yang and an international team of colleagues from several institutions across the United States and China have been awarded by the National Science Foundation.

Living in a materials world

Solving the most urgent problems facing society in many cases will depend on finding new ways to crack the secrets of these stubborn substances. That is the inspiration for the launch of the new Institute for Functional Materials & Devices (I-FMD), one of three new Interdisciplinary Research Institutes (IRIs) that create communities of scholars and catalyze crucial research in areas where Lehigh is poised to make lasting societal contributions.

Seeing things differently

An innovative nearly two-decade partnership between Lehigh's P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applieced Science, TE Connectivity and the Bethlehem School District's Broughal Middle School has fostered success on multiple levels.
