COVID-19: CSU mechanical engineering researchers continue mask studies
Watch: MAV robot in action
Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor Jianguo Zhao and his research team are pushing the bounds of robotics technology – their latest endeavor with micro aerial vehicles (MAV). MAV have many promising applications ranging from environmental monitoring and agricultural inspection to package delivery, but there’s a problem: short flight times and high energy consumption.
To solve this problem, CSU is engineering a MAV that is able to rest by perching. Read more on New Atlas.
First-generation student launches career at NASA
Danelle Lazcano-Concelman’s prestigious internships at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, proved to be life-changing experiences. She now works at NASA as a cryogenic propulsion systems engineer – not bad for someone who is the first in her family to go to college and took calculus three times just to be admitted to the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering!

Research Dreams a Reality
Making tongues go mainstream is goal of open-source, CSU-created product
JJ Moritz, who recently completed his master’s degree in mechanical engineering, is leading the startup company Sapien LLC using technology developed at CSU. The technology senses the position of the tongue, which allows users to control video games or mobility and assistive devices with the tongue alone.
