A new telescope built by an international team of scientists will soon take high-resolution images of the universe.The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope will scan the universe with unprecedented width, depth and speed, said Charles Keeton, an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, who is helping design and construct the device.
Climate change is currently one of the biggest issues that our world faces today. Its effects have been far-reaching, going so far as to cause Greenland's ice sheet to begin melting, said Asa Rennermalm, an associate professor in the Department of Geography.The Greenland ice sheet is the second largest body of glacial ice in the world, with an area of 1.71 million square kilometers and a volume of 2.85 million cubic kilometers according to the Arctic Report Card written by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The research project is based on how climate change in the Arctic relates to the Greenland ice sheet, she said. “Greenland has been a part of my interest since I was an undergrad (when) I went to Greenland and did a research project there” she said.
The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), is a new telescope built by an international team of scientists that will scan the universe with unprecedent width, depth and speed and capture high-resolution images of the universe. MICHELLE KLEJMONT / MANAGING EDITOR
A new breed of skilled engineers will soon be trained to handle evolving global problems at the School of Engineering.The national "Grand Challenges” program adopted by more than 120 engineering institutions focuses on developing skilled engineers that will be able to tackle some of the most difficult problems facing the world, according to a press release by the National Academy of Engineering.
Creating a surround-sound videowall could revolutionize the way people learn.That is the concept behind a research project by the Aresty Undergraduate Research Program run by Richard Martin, an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science Department at the University.
An individual observes the surround sound videowall, which Richard Martin, an associate professor in the Department of Computer Scienece, describes as “looking through a window into another classroom.” COURTESY OF RICHARD MARTIN

With bee populations diminishing in size, researchers across the country are trying to find ways to save them from disappearing altogether.
Introducing undergraduate students to research expands their knowledge differently from a classroom experience, said Dean Brian Ballentine, Executive Director of the Aresty Undergraduate Research Program.The Aresty Program connects students with research projects throughout the University.
Daniel Cariveau, a researcher in Rutgers’ Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, is working with undergraduate students Kurtis Himmler and Rosy Tucker to determine if there are correlations between flower size and its pollinating bee’s size.
Children participate in “SciFest,” the event held to conclude “Geek Week,” where scientists part of the “Mad Science” group demonstrate a physics presentation in the Allison Road Classrooms on Busch campus.
On Tuesday, research groups from all over the School of Engineering arrived at the Busch Campus Center to display their work.The Second Annual Research Fair, hosted by the Society of Women Engineers and Sigma Phi Delta, helped exhibit the research that Rutgers is doing, as well as allow students to network with professors and graduate students from many departments.Samantha Murray, a senior in the School of Arts and Sciences, is in a research position at Materials Science and Engineering.
More than 85 percent of students who have internships receive two job offers after graduation, according to a sign in the Busch Student Center’s University Career Services window.As part of National Engineers Week, several School of Engineering students described their internship experiences for the 2nd Annual Interns Present competition.Interns’ presentations were judged on a basic rubric, said Kevin Bailey, the Vice President of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
National Engineers Week was brought to a close with Rutgers’ Fourth Annual Cardboard Canoe race, held in the Werblin Recreational Center Pool Friday night.
From making slime to forming clouds, students were able to experience different engineering principles at the fourth annual NERD Olympics Wednesday in the Busch Student Center.The Novel Engineering Regional Design Olympics was created to be a casual interactive event for School of Engineering students and faculty to attend, said Mansi Sanghvi, the Event Planning Assistant in the School of Engineering Dean’s Administrative Office.
Middle school students raced water-powered cars and built circuits Monday as part of the Verizon-Rutgers Engineers Week kickoff event.National Engineers Week is an annual series of events geared toward celebrating the accomplishments of engineers. Verizon hosted the first event at the University where children learned applications to basic mathematics and science lessons while surrounded by actual engineers and engineering students.
