"Intelligent Welding" by Alexandra Del Carmen Basantes Defaz, Materials Engineering; 2nd Place
3 Engineering Students Win Image of Research Awards
Congrats to our Image of Research winners! The Image of Research exhibition is the annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition organized by the Graduate College and University Library to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC.  "Intelligent Welding" by Alexandra Del Carmen Basantes Defaz, Materials Engineering; 2nd Place"Intelligent Welding" I am not your stereotypical welder. I am an M.S. student in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering conducting research in UIC’s Welding Laboratory under the direction of Professors Ernesto Indacochea and Didem Ozevin. I am researching traditional welding techniques and autonomous welding in “real-time” to avoid defects. It addresses weld quality assurance by developing a combined real-time diagnosis, decision, and control system based on multi-sensor fusion and machine learning methodology. The…

ECE Students Giving Back to the Community through Senior Design Projects
Embracing and partnering with the community is one of the key elements of UIC’s strategic priorities. And 16 students in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) are taking this mission to heart and using their engineering knowledge and skills to help four Chicago nonprofits.
Chicago EDT robot
Chicago EDT Wins 2nd at NASA Competition
UIC's robotics team, the Chicago Engineering Design Team (EDT), won the Second Place Caterpillar Autonomous Award at the 2017 NASA Robotic Mining Competition. The competition, held at the Kennedy Space Center, challenged teams to design and build a robot that can dig and collect basaltic regolith simulant and autonomously navigate a simulated Martian terrain—objectives designed to help NASA find innovative ways to excavate well-insulated water ice. Chicago EDT beat 44 teams including Purdue University, Illinois Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, and UIUC in its fifth year participating in the competition.Visit chicagoedt.org for more information.
