Work is underway to realize the vision of Brock University’s Yousef Haj-Ahmad Department of Engineering.

Since the formation of the department was approved by the University Senate in May 2021, significant progress has been made in creating bold new programming that will welcome the first cohort of undergraduate integrated engineering students from Brock for the 2024-25 academic year.

Integrated Engineering takes key concepts from traditional engineering fields – such as mechanics, software, and electricity – and brings them together in one cohesive program where students learn about each field as well as the connections between them.

Students will explore topics such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, medical devices, energy, sustainability and climate change, robot automation, manufacturing, and transportation.

Beatrice Ombuki-Berman, who was the founder and interim president of Brock’s Yousef Haj-Ahmad engineering department, recently handed over the leadership reins after a year overseeing hiring and program development for the department. .

Within months of Senate approval, the Department of Engineering – with the interdisciplinary nature of integrated engineering in mind – hired its first faculty members and staff: Assistant Professor Jasneet Kaur, who is cross-appointed to the Department of Physics; Associate Professor Shengrong Bu, Engineering’s first senior hire; Assistant Professor Glaucio Haroldo Silva de Carvalho, co-appointed with Computing; and administrative assistant Josie Zhao.

These efforts were spearheaded by the department’s founding and interim chair, Beatrice Ombuki-Berman, who recently handed over the leadership reins after a year overseeing hiring and program development. This included the hiring of the department’s new head, Professor Shahryar Rahnamayan, and two new faculty members – Associate Professor Amir Mofidi and Assistant Professor Alonzo Zavafer (appointed jointly with Biology) – all who started at Brock July 1.

Rahnamayan is an award-winning researcher who brings over 18 years of research experience from the University of Waterloo, Michigan State University, Simon Fraser University and Ontario Tech University.

Rahnamayan earned his BSc and MSc in Software Engineering, as well as his Ph.D. in Systems Design Engineering. He has published over 200 papers in the fields of machine learning, optimization and medical image processing, and was ranked among the top two percent of artificial intelligence researchers in the world in 2020 and 2021. Rahnamayan received teaching and research awards during his time. at the Ontario University of Technology.

Ombuki-Berman, a computer science professor at the university, said Rahnamayan’s interdisciplinary research, combined with his experience in launching new programs, made him the ideal candidate for the position.

“We were looking for someone who could bring administrative experience, interdisciplinary research excellence and international worldview to our integrated engineering program,” she says. “We are fortunate to now have Shahryar as head of engineering at Brock. He is already actively involved in advancing the department.

Rahnamayan says he was intrigued by the opportunity to help build the University’s engineering program from the ground up.

A group of five people - two men and three women - stand together in a stairwell.

In addition to its new chair, Brock’s engineering department now includes (left to right) Associate Professor Amir Mofidi, Administrative Assistant Josie Zhao, Assistant Professor Jasneet Kaur, Associate Professor Shengrong Bu, and Assistant Professor Glaucio Haroldo Silva de Carvalho. Absent from the photo is Assistant Professor Alonzo Zavafer.

“There’s so much potential here and I’m thrilled to be a part of it,” he said. “I believe the establishment of engineering at Brock is a turning point for the University and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.”

Brock will be one of only three Canadian universities to offer integrated engineering programs at the undergraduate level.

Since Rahnamayan started in his new role, he has been focused on advancing curriculum development and growing the department, which will welcome his newest faculty member next July.

In keeping with Brock’s commitment to fostering a culture of inclusivity, accessibility, reconciliation, and decolonization, the department, since its inception, has not only focused on developing an excellent interdisciplinary program, but is also committed to attracting an excellent pool of diverse and inclusive talent, including students, staff and faculty, says Ombuki-Berman.

The next step for engineering at Brock will see a proposal brief detailing the curriculum for the program presented to the Senate for consideration this fall.

With its undergraduate programming in place, the engineering team intends to present a statement of intent for graduate programs within the department.

Rahnamayan thanked Ombuki-Berman, Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science Ejaz Ahmed as well as Greg Finn, Special Advisor to the President and Provost, and members of the Engineering Advisory Committee for their contributions to the development of the department, which was also made possible by a transformational gift of $5 million from the Haj-Ahmad Family Foundation.

Hungary encourages Filipinos to study nuclear engineering to help provide possible energy solutions for the Philippines in the future.

At the 7th Political Consultations between the Philippines and Hungary in Budapest this week, officials encouraged interested Filipinos to apply for a scholarship once the application reopens.

“The Philippines thanked Hungary for continuing to provide Filipino scholars with training opportunities to study at Hungarian universities through the Stipendium Hungaricum program, which annually awards 35 places to qualified Filipinos,” a foreign ministry statement said. (FDFA) dated September 30. “In considering possible energy solutions for the Philippines in the future, Hungary has encouraged Filipinos to study nuclear engineering under the scholarship program.”

The application for the Hungarian scholarship was last opened in November 2021 for the academic year 2022-2023.

Besides education, the possibility of a bilateral labor agreement was also raised in response to the growing number of Filipinos being deployed to Hungary.

In addition, the two countries reviewed the status of ongoing agreements on financial cooperation and transportation while considering making greater use of existing agreements on agriculture, science and technology.

The FDFA said the meeting provided an opportunity to exchange views on regional issues, including security situations in Southeast Asia, the South China Sea and Europe.

Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs Ma. Theresa Lazaro and Hungarian Assistant Secretary of State for the Development of Eastern Relations Adam Stifter chaired the meeting held on September 26.

They were joined by Philippine Ambassador to Hungary Frank Cimafranca and officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Department of Fastest Growing Economies. (NAP)

Indian Railways is credited for constructing the highest railway bridge in the world – Chenab Bridge in Kashmir, successfully completing the Golden Joint. The Golden Joint connects the two ends of the deck of the highest railway bridge in the world, thus symbolically connecting Kashmir to the rest of India.

A feat of Indian engineering, the 1,315 meter long bridge forms a crucial link on the 111 km stretch from Katra to Banihal, which forms part of the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla section of the Kashmir Railway Project.

The Chenab Bridge is built 359 meters above the riverbed (Photos: Indian Railways)

The highest railway bridge in the world, the Chenab bridge culminates at 359 meters above the bed of the river, or 35 meters higher than the Eiffel Tower. The bridge is the key link to provide direct connectivity to the Kashmir Valley. The design life of the bridge is at least 120 years.

The Chenab Bridge has already taken enthusiasts by storm. Social media calls it “connectedness to heaven on earth”. During the monsoon, the bridge looks almost like something out of a fairy tale drowned in a sea of ​​clouds.

The photos of the bridge are so stunning that Twitterati checked with the Ministry of Railways to pre-book the train ride!

The Chenab Bridge is an engineering marvel as its construction continues in the face of several challenges. The project was designed and is being implemented despite the awareness of the challenges posed by the geology, difficult terrain and hostile environment.

Engineers and railway managers are at work with commitment and ingenuity despite gargantuan challenges in order to meet the schedule.

According to the managing director of Northern Railways, Indian Railways plans to link Kashmir with the rest of the country via the rail link by the end of 2023.

This project is India’s highest railway network – defying gravity on the impossible terrain of the Pir Panjal range. Indian Railways’ “Future Ready” rail system will surely be the next chapter in J&K’s glory, development and prosperity.

Surender Mahi, Administrative Manager of the Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link (USBRL) project, said: “It was a very big project for all of us. To get here, we had to build 26 km of access roads with bridges and tunnels”. .

Top institutions including IIT – Roorkee and IIT Delhi have extended their technical support for the construction of the bridge

Mahi said that by defying obstacles and challenges, engineers finally built the tallest bridge in the world and gifted this engineering marvel to the people of Kashmir.

This feat, according to him, was achieved with the technical support of several prestigious science and technology institutions in the country including IIT-Roorkee, IIT-Delhi, Indian Institute of Sciences – Bangalore, DRDO, National Remote Sensing Agency, GSI and other agencies. ”

The responsibility of linking the country through rail infrastructure over the dangerous J&K terrain in addition to the Chenab Bridge has been given to Mumbai-based Afcons.

The company is constructing another 16 railway bridges in the Kashmir Valley, all of which are part of a cost-effective and weatherproof USBRL project that will be a boon to the local economy.

Connectivity is the key to development. Kashmir was almost separated from the rest of the country due to poor connectivity, mostly inhibited by difficult terrain. This hindered the general development of the region.

Although road transport was available, it was a tedious journey for travelers. Through Indian Railways, the rail link will provide round-the-clock transport to and from the valley.

This cheap transport will usher in new developments in the region as it will facilitate transportation across India of all local products especially apples, handicrafts and art products consisting of warm clothes and wood.

73 villages that were only accessible on foot or by boat will benefit from this rail link

Although Indian Railways planned the rail link to Kashmir long ago, the administration has been pushing for the timely completion of all the projects since the repeal of Section 370, despite the related hurdles to the pandemic along the way.

The railway line also ushers in the development of surrounding areas which until now lacked even a basic road network. Indian Railways has constructed access roads over 205 km long, which include a tunnel and 320 bridges.

73 villages in the region that were previously only accessible on foot or by boat are now accessible thanks to this rail link.

The electrification of the 137 km Banihal-Baramulla corridor rail link, costing Rs 324 crore, with three main substations – Qazigund, Budgam and Baramulla – is another boon for the region.

This will not only reduce pollution in the region, but also save 60% of total fuel consumption at present.

Infrastructure development in J&K saw a strong boost after the repeal of Section 370 and since then the government has announced many development projects and policies in the J&K area.

The sincerity of the central government in developing J&K could be gauged by the fact that 34% of J&K budget revenue for the financial year 2022-23 estimated at Rs 68,206 crore would come from the central government in the form of grants.

The central government continuously pumps monetary resources and takes policy initiatives to rejuvenate the local economy. The National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDCL) is developing five tunnels in the region at a cost of $3.42 million. The tunnels will be accessible in all weathers and will be completed by 2024.

The bridge is expected to give a big boost to tourism in Kashmir

Previously, the underdeveloped strategic highways had aggravated the worries of the agriculture and horticulture sectors in the region as the movement of fruits took an excessively long time to reach the market destinations.

But now that fear is giving way to hope as the government continues to build major highways as a priority. These connectivity projects are expected to bring development and prosperity to Kashmir as well as business and job opportunities for young Kashmiris.- IANS

September 20, 2022 | By Mary Bailey

Amogie Inc.. and Trafigura announced an agreement to study the use of ammonia as a carrier to transport clean hydrogen from the point of production to the point of consumption. The results of this joint ammonia cracking research will help support industry-wide efforts to decarbonize transportation and heavy industrial processes and reduce carbon emissions to meet global climate goals. .

Trafigura deploys infrastructure, logistics and finance to connect global producers and consumers of petroleum and petroleum products, metals and minerals, electricity and renewable energy through efficient and sustainable supply chains . The company is exploring future low-carbon energy sources, including technologies that can enable high-volume transportation of zero-emission fuels. Ammonia is considered a promising hydrogen carrier due to its high volumetric density of hydrogen, allowing economical transport of hydrogen over long distances.

Amogy’s ammonia-to-electricity platform includes the company’s proprietary cracking technology that converts ammonia back to hydrogen. Following successful demonstrations, Amogy is now expanding its technology for use in larger applications and pursuing strategic partnerships to support global decarbonization efforts.

Amogy and Trafigura will launch a joint research effort to identify and evaluate scenarios in which ammonia cracking technology can be deployed to support the growing hydrogen market, starting with Europe which is targeting 20 million tonnes of hydrogen consumption by 2030. demand forecasts, the two companies will determine the viability and profitability of industrial-scale ammonia crackers.

“Our partnership with Trafigura opens tremendous opportunities for the Amogy team to better understand and explore the potential benefits of our platform at scale,” said Seonghoon Woo, CEO and co-founder of Amogy. “We look forward to working with Trafigura to identify opportunities for large-scale ammonia cracking to enable the global transport of hydrogen.”

“At Trafigura, we recognize that hydrogen will need to be transported over long distances, from regions rich in renewable energy to centers of demand. Ammonia is a cost-competitive hydrogen carrier that will require cracking at destination to meet different end uses,” said Margaux Moore, Head of Energy Transition Research at Trafigura. “We believe that ammonia cracking will be a key enabling technology for the large-scale adoption of clean hydrogen. Our work with Amogy will help us understand the economics of this supply chain, in order to provide the most competitive low-carbon hydrogen to our customers.

Ammonia is a carbon-neutral energy carrier and potential transportation fuel widely used in fertilizers, plastics, and explosives. Conventional ammonia synthesis methods rely primarily on the high temperature, high pressure Haber-Bosch process, which results in considerable energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, it is essential to develop appropriate solutions to achieve high efficiency, low energy consumption, low emissions and sustainable ammonia production under benign environmental conditions. Electrochemical ammonia synthesis, which has become a popular research topic, allows the thermodynamically non-spontaneous ammonia synthesis reaction to be carried out under ambient conditions driven by electrical energy. However, nonpolar N2 is insoluble in water, which limits its adsorption and activation on the surface of the catalyst, and the competitive reaction of hydrogen evolution at the reduction potential considerably reduces the yield and faradic efficiency of N2 ammonia reduction. Therefore, finding new electrocatalysts with high catalytic performance and studying the reaction mechanism of N2 ammonia reduction is crucial.

Recently, Professor Luo Wenbin from Northeast University and Li Feng from Metal Research Institute published a paper titled “Boosting Electrocatalytic Nitrogen Fixation by Three-Dimensional TiO2-δNOTδ nanowire arrays” in Journal of Energy Chemistry. The first author of this article is Mu Jianjia, a doctoral student at Northeastern University. Gao Xuanwen, who is an associate professor, is the co-author. The corresponding authors are Professor Luo Wenbin and Li Feng.

In this study, 3D nanowire networks were grown on carbon fabric to form an integrated network to avoid binder-induced side reactions, thereby increasing cycle life. The nitrogen reduction reaction (NRR) showed a high yield rate of ammonia (14.33 µg h1 mgcat1) at −0.2 V and high faradic efficiency (9.17%) at −0.1 V in 0.1 M KOH electrolyte, outperforming the reported Ov-rich in TiO2based on electrocatalysts. The synergistic effects of Ov and TI3+ in the RNR under ambient conditions have been experimentally and theoretically demonstrated, thus presenting a new concept of highly efficient electrocatalysts.

A valuable university of Hawaii to Mānoa’s engineering program provided 15 high school students rising from Hawaii and Japan with opportunities to conduct meaningful laboratory research, engage in professional development and cultural activities, participate in engineering challenges, and visit engineering companies to explore career opportunities in a variety of contexts.

The College of EngineeringThe signature internship program was relaunched this summer after a four-year hiatus and is now known as Junior Engineers Summer STEM Live (JESSE). Select for JESSEinterns went through a rigorous application process that included submitting transcripts, teacher recommendations, and essays demonstrating their passion for engineering.

At the start of the program, each intern was paired with an engineering lab and mentor—most of whom were graduate students—and given a meaningful research project to complete individually or in a small group. Seven labs participated and covered different engineering topics, from drone technologies to aerospace to water resources and geotechnical testing.

During the lab weeks, there were additional educational opportunities such as resume workshops, public speaking and presentation training, and site visits to various local employers. Participating industry partners included KAI Hawaii, Trane Technologies, Raytheon, Austin Tsutsumi & Associates, Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific, Booz Allen Hamilton, Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation, SSFM International and Burns & McDonnell.

At the head of JESSE were from college Engineering Student Ambassadors—current students who lead STEM outreach programs and planning university events throughout the year. JESSE lead and ride mechanical Engineering Senior Dedrick Sakuma took care of the coordination and logistics of the program, and also developed a mentoring relationship with many interns, advising them on studies and university life.

“Working with these rising high school students has definitely been an unforgettable experience,” Sakuma said. “It was a pleasure to know them and we hope to see many of them in uh next fall, or else back in Hawaii in the future as engineering professionals.

The course ended with a final evening at uh Mānoa during which interns enjoyed dinner and presented their research results and program results to an audience of family members, friends, mentors and university professors. assistant dean Song Choi was one of many attendees who were blown away by the quality of work and presentation skills of the interns.

“Having been involved from the start of the uh Mānoa College of Engineering Summer Internship Program 20 years ago, the quality of internship projects and professional presentations was beyond any caliber displayed in recent years,” Choi said. “This year’s project groups were exceptionally articulate and detailed in their project scope and results. I really appreciate all the efforts made by the organizers and the mentors. Fantastic!”

In a post-program survey, trainees provided overwhelmingly positive feedback on their experiences, with 100% of the group willing to recommend JESSE to others. What did they like? Applied learning, industry access, and new connections were key highlights.

It was a “great opportunity to meet like-minded engineering students and gain hands-on experience working on engineering projects,” said one student. Another liked the program because it “gives you a great insight into what engineering looks like on a professional level and it allows you to network and meet some really cool people and mentors.”
