Berkeley Engineering Today

When Hollywood knocked on the doors of UC Berkeley engineering professors Michel Maharbiz and Jose Carmena, the researchers answered. Director Wally Pfister tapped the researchers’ expertise in neural engineering and brain-machine interfaces during the filming of his movie, “Transcendence,” which opens in theaters Friday, April 18.
Bioengineering professor Adam Arkin, director of Berkeley Lab’s Physical Biosciences Division and a biologist who is recognized as a leading authority on the evolutionary design principles of cellular networks and populations and their application to systems and synthetic biology, has been named one of six recipients of the 2013 Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award, the Department of Energy’s highest scientific honor.
TI lab project Apr 15, 2014 Texas Instruments
Students show off design projects from TI lab
As the first anniversary of the Texas Instrument-funded Electronics Design Lab approaches, TI highlights some of the cool student projects -- from a tic-tac-toe board to an autonomous quadcopter -- that were made possible through this $2.2 million teaching lab and adjoining "maker lounge."
Software pioneer Eric Allman (B.S.'77 EECS, M.S.'80 CS), whose creation of the sendmail program in the 1980s made possible email as we know it today, has been inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame. Joining him as a member of the class of 2014 is the late Douglas Engelbart (Ph.D.'55 EE), father of the computer mouse.

dissecting collagen from turkey skin Apr 01, 2014 The Scientist
Dermatologically derived
Inspired by turkey skin, bioengineering professor Seung-Wuk Lee’s team has devised a bacteriophage-based sensor whose color changes upon binding specific molecules.
High speed rail Mar 31, 2014 San Francisco Business Times
More woes for high-speed rail
The $68 billion cost estimate for a Los Angeles-to-San Francisco high-speed rail network is far too low, and the system may be eclipsed by emerging technologies before the 30-year project is completed, civil engineering professor C. William Ibbs warned the state Senate transportation committee last week.
Fish got to swim, birds got to fly, and engineering students got to do wild and wacky things -- like designing, building, and racing canoes made of concrete. And nowhere do they do it better than at Berkeley Engineering, where civil engineering students are working overtime getting this year’s canoe, Calamari, ready for the Mid-Pacific Regional Conference in early April.
