Hello all! My top engineering technology picks of the week include Jaguar’s new (partially) transparent car for safer driving, why you should wait to buy a new smartphone until next year and how aluminum can improve product design across many industries. Have a great weekend (and a good holiday)!
I need to share a story with you that began on the 25th of December, 2013. Every Christmas Day, I wake up very excited to discover what Santa has brought me. But on this particular Christmas, I was extremely disappointed: no present from Santa, even though I sent my letter to the North Pole very early in November. How strange!

Hello all! My top engineering technology picks of the week include the development of rewritable paper, a smartwatch that is smart enough to predict when seizures will occur and how you really get your products shipped from Amazon during the Black Friday and holiday rush. Have a great weekend!
The Swanson School of Engineering — located in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, a short four miles from the downtown — is having its first Student Design EXPO today, Thursday, December 4, from 6:00 to 8:30 in Alumni Hall. This first EXPO has a unique focus on sustainability — each of the 71 projects must include a sustainability component as this is the “Year of Sustainability” at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Swanson School has an obvious strong relationship to ANSYS. John Swanson, ANSYS’s founder received his PhD from us. On December 5, 2007, John presented the University of Pittsburgh with a most generous gift and we became the Swanson School of Engineering. John is a frequent visitor to the Swanson School and is currently mentoring several student projects focused on harvesting and using solar energy, a current passion of his. Continue reading →
