College of Engineering’s 2021 Virtual Design Showcase

June 01, 2021

By Rachel Steere and Noah Pflueger-Peters

The Engineering Design Showcase is the culminating experience for graduating seniors. This event brings together project teams from all eight departments for an opportunity to share their design projects with their peers, professors and the public. This year, the College of Engineering will host the showcase virtually on the college’s website on June 3, 2021. About 130 design teams and engineering clubs have signed up to share their efforts with industry partners, alumni and the campus community.

Inside the "New Normal" of Remote Instruction

November 09, 2020

Since Yolo County issued a shelter-in-place order on March 18 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, life has changed dramatically for the College of Engineering’s students, graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) and faculty members. In keeping with Aggie spirit and pride, our community demonstrated tremendous flexibility and resilience in transitioning spring quarter classes online and have immersed themselves in the virtual environment to create a robust remote learning experience this fall.

Engineering creative solutions for teaching remotely

June 02, 2020

When Yolo County issued a shelter-in-place order on March 18, the College of Engineering’s graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) and faculty members had less than two weeks to transition their spring classes online. While spring 2020 will be remembered as anything but a normal quarter, innovation in teaching and community among students and TAs have helped keep the college running and make the best of the situation.

Wearable device assists people with loss of bladder function

March 12, 2020
UC Davis medical and engineering experts are teaming up to develop an under-clothing biosensor that can recognize in real time when someone’s bladder is full. Most people take that kind of biological awareness for granted, but it is lacking for the approximately half a million individuals in the United States with spinal cord injuries or spinal anomalies.
