MSE News and Events

The paper titled “On the nature of thermal transport in organic/inorganic nanolaminates” by Rajan Khadka and Prof. Pawel Keblinski has been featured as a cover article in the Journal of Applied Physics. Independently, the same work, as well as Rajan Khadka, were recognized by the MSE department by the 2024 “Norman S. Stoloff Research Excellence Award.
The MSE department welcomes new new Assistant Professor, Dr. Wei Bao, who will build a research group in the broad area of quantum materials for quantum information and quantum computing applications.
Prof. Jian Shi has won the prestigious 2023 IEEE Ferroelectrics Young Investigator Award “for his exciting out-of-box work on ferroelectrics and new way exploration of old materials." This highly-competitive award recognizes only one or two exceptional scientists under the age of 40 in the relevant field each year.
Dr. Hull has been appointed as Vice President for Research after serving as Acting Vice President for Research since March 2020. He also continues to serve as director of the Rensselaer Center for Materials, Devices, and Integrated Systems (cMDIS).

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate Professor position in Materials Science and Engineering with expertise and potential in the broad area of bulk/thin film metallic materials.

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have fabricated a device no wider than a human hair that will help physicists investigate the fundamental nature of matter and light. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, could also support the development of more efficient lasers, which are used in fields ranging from medicine to manufacturing. 
The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has established a new master’s degree program that will prepare students for careers of biomedical data science, a fast growing engineering specialty.Those with expertise in biomedical data science are already in high demand, and that demand will  continue to rise in the future, said Juergen Hahn, Ph.D., head of the Biomedical Engineering Department.
