College of Engineering Students Compete in SpaceX Hyperloop Competition

January 22, 2016

Imagine zooming between cities in a high-speed transportation pod at 700-plus miles an hour, all the while levitated above a small pocket of air. Cool, right? Now imagine designing, engineering, manufacturing, marketing a prototype of that very pod, all from scratch and while still an undergraduate student. For about 80 students at Drexel University, that is out-of-this-world, hyper cool.... Read More »

Oil Spill Material

In hopes of limiting the disastrous environmental effects of massive oil spills, Materials scientists from Drexel University and Deakin University, in Australia, have teamed up to manufacture and test a new material, called a boron nitride nanosheet, that can absorb up to 33 times its weight in oils and organic solvents—a trait that could make it an important technology for quickly mitigating these costly accidents.
