"Biological Materials Science" is written by Po-Yu Chen and Professor Marc Meyers and is intended to be a text that will introduce the fertile field of Biology to Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering.

Professor Miroslav Krstic has received the triennial Chestnut Textbook Prize of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) for the book Boundary Control of PDEs. The award is named in honor of late Harold Chestnut, the founding president of IFAC ('57), president of IEEE ('73), and member of NAE ('74).

Professor Tom Bewley presented the recent work of the UCSD Flow Control & Coordinated Robotics Labs at the recent CommNexus headliner event entitled San Diego: The Hub for the New Age of Robotic Innovation.  Also presenting were Professor Al Pisano, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering, Dr. Eugene Izhikevich, CEO of Brain Corp, and Tim McConnell, Director of Engineering at 3D Robotics.  To see the video click here.
