While California would address many issues in the development of 20th century state
higher education, it can safely be said that San Jose State University and its College
of Engineering’s challenge against certain restrictions in 1953 created a watershed
in the development of the state university system’s role in California education,
and made a significant and positive impact on what state schools could offer to meet
the growing needs of the public.
Materials Engineering undergraduates from San Jose State University participated in
a virtual technical presentation at the November joint technical meeting hosted by
the Santa Clara Valley chapter of ASM International and the Northern California chapter
of SAMPE, the world’s largest associations of metals and composites-centric materials
engineers and scientists.
How would you like your residential solar photovoltaic system to operate at maximum
efficiency, regardless of whether shade hits your solar panels? SJSU Electrical Engineering
professor Mohamed Badawy and his students have created a differential power-processing
architecture for a partially shaded photovoltaic string that could increase the extracted
amount of solar energy by 15-30% compared to conventional systems.
The Davidson College of Engineering is launching a new Masters of Science program
in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in fall 2020. The first cohort of the MSAI program
will be offered through Engineering Extended Studies with one of the College of Engineering’s
off-campus corporate partners.
The unfair and non-competitive political redistricting process known as gerrymandering
could be solved using new mathematical models and computer implementation, according
to a recent study by a San Jose State University research team that appeared in Computers
& Industrial Engineering, an Elsevier publication.
