With nature as their muse, Swanson School of Engineering researchers have developed a durable, clear, anti-fogging and liquid-resistant glass using machine learning to expedite design testing.

As a postdoctoral researcher, Bruce Hapke helped NASA determine the consistency of the moon’s soil, which helped engineers create the proper boots, rovers and wheeled equipment for the Apollo 11 landing, which happened 50 years ago this Saturday. Hapke and others at Pitt have helped build on a legacy of space research.
Students from Pittsburgh’s Hill District put their coding skills to the test to recreate the 1978 game Space Invaders, using a computer program provided by Pitt’s Swanson School of Engineering and the School of Computing and Information. The coding exercise was part of a three-day STEM mini-camp hosted by Pitt’s Hill District Community Engagement Center.
