  • The geometry of a moth's eye provides inspiration for a 3D printed antenna that absorbs specific microwave frequencies from any direction. Credit: Hojat Nejad.

    Tufts electrical engineers and chemical engineers create novel optical devices, including an omnidirectional microwave antenna inspired by a moth's eye.

  • Elementary school children looking at a television screen, displaying information that they submitted to the Design Keeper app. The children are sitting on the floor and raising their hands.
    Tufts and UMass Boston researchers provide a framework for applying years of learning research to engineering education.
  • Sensing threads prepared with bromothymol blue (top thread), methyl red (middle thread) and MnTPP (bottom thread) are exposed to ammonia at 0 ppm (left panel) 50 ppm (middle panel) and 1000 ppm (right panel).
    Equipment- and training-free textile detectors, developed by Ph.D. candidate Rachel Owyeung, Associate Professor Matthew Panzer, and Professor Sameer Sonkusale, could be used in public health, workplace safety, military, and rescue applications.
  • A Tufts research team — including Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin, the John A. and Dorothy M. Adams Faculty Development Professor, and alumna Ilin Sadeghi — developed a low-cost membrane to separate oil and water for environmental remediation and wastewater treatment.
  • The team behind ZwitterCo poses with a large check.
    ZwitterCo, a start-up founded by Tufts Gordon Institute and Civil and Environmental Engineering alumni, uses nanofilters to separate oil and grease from reusable water. The technique is based on Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin's research.
  • A group of students in a classroom
    Interested in studying Engineering and learning English in Boston over the summer? Our International STEM Scholars program will prepare you for graduate engineering programs. During the six-week program you will build skills to thrive in graduate school and the workplace, and earn credit hours in a special course taught by faculty from Tufts School of Engineering.
  • A man in a lab with an instrument
    Researchers from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering studied methods to support the development of GaAsBi-based devices for mid- and far-infrared applications, focusing on the increasing the fractions of the element bismuth without losing material quality. 
  • Engineers Week 2019 February 15-22
    Join us for Engineers Week at Tufts, February 15-22. All are welcome!
  • Two college campus buildings
    A group of Tufts researchers from the Departments of Computer Science and Chemical and Biological Engineering were on a team that utilized PROXIMAL, a tool that predicts putative structural modifications, to use enzyme promiscuity as basis to predict hundreds of reactions and metabolites that may exist in E. coli but have not been documented in other databases.
  • Wind turbines in the ocean
    Tufts offers first graduate program of its kind in the country, integrating engineering with policy and economics.
