What climate choices should cities make? A Princeton data tool helps planners set priorities.

A new tool for city planners helps them design a portfolio of actions that encompasses compact development, smart electric mobility, electric heating systems, mass timber construction, urban reforestation, and technologies that allow resources to circulate efficiently through the food, waste and energy sectors.

Nordenson elected to National Academy of Engineering

Guy Nordenson, a professor of architecture and affiliated member of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, which is among the highest honors awarded to engineers.

Civil engineering student pursues policy and design, leads campus network of Black engineers

By building knowledge in structural design, history and policy, Princeton engineering student Jayla Cornelius hopes to work toward sustainable infrastructure and environmental justice.

Part Fourteen: Hello, World

From making cities more sustainable and cooler, to combatting climate change and a global pandemic, to raising the next generation of programmers, Princeton Engineering carries on a hundred-year tradition of global impact.

Part Eleven: Building Big, Building Small

Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering… That’s what they are known by today, but over time the departmental names have shifted with the needs of society. Electrical engineers from Princeton have built the smallest microchips and the biggest companies. Civil engineers here have built “structural art” that combines high functionality with dazzling beauty.

Emerging Scholars join CITP’s community of tech and society researchers

Three recent university graduates joined Princeton’s Center for Information Technology Policy this fall as the inaugural class of Emerging Scholars, a program aimed at helping people start careers that combine technology and public policy.

Thin-film, high-frequency antenna array offers new flexibility for wireless communications

Princeton researchers have taken a step toward developing a type of antenna array that could coat an airplane’s wings, function as a skin patch transmitting signals to medical implants, or cover a room as wallpaper that communicates with internet of things (IoT) devices.

Social computing researcher views code as an engine for change

Andrés Monroy-Hernández, assistant professor of computer science, reflects on career and heritage.

Civil engineer connects materials research to sustainability — and her family’s history

Karina Alventosa, a Ph.D. student in civil and environmental engineering, reflects on her career path, graduate research and leadership roles at Princeton.
