  Penn Engineers Develop New Materials to Use in Stress Tests
  When deciding what materials to use in building something, determining how those materials respond to stress and strain is often the first task. When stress causes a material’s constituent molecules to rearrange in a way such that they can't go back to their original positions, it is known as "plastic deformation." Penn Engineers have devised a method to study stress at the macro and micro scales at the same time, using a model system in which microscopic particles stand in for molecules.

  Engineering APOC Students Travel to Ghana to Study Type 2 Diabetes
 
Students participating in Penn Engineering’s Appropriate Point of Care Diagnostics (APOC) program traveled to Ghana to design a point-of-care device that will address the growing problem of Type 2 diabetes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Type 2 diabetes is gravely understudied in Sub-Saharan Africa, with about 80 percent of the affected population believed to be undiagnosed.
