The Federal Aviation Administration has counted nearly 325,000 registered drone operators as of Feb. 8, 2016 – although this number represents only a fraction of the unmanned aerial vehicles currently at the fingertips of humans. According to the FAA, the average drone operator owns one and a half drones, putting the number of flying robots closer to half a million…but how many of these drones will dance?

Starting in 2017, researchers from around the university will have the opportunity to access the nation’s highest-quality Census data for analysis of U.S. economy and public policy issues as a partner with the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania and Penn State University in a new Federal Statistical Research Data Center that will be located in Philadelphia.
Drexel University researchers, led by MinJun Kim, PhD, a professor in the College of Engineering, have successfully pulled off a feat that both sci-fi fans and Michael Phelps could appreciate. Using a rotating magnetic field they show how multiple chains of microscopic magnetic bead-based robots can link up to reach impressive speeds swimming through a liquid. Their finding is the latest step toward using the so-called “microswimmers” to deliver medicine and perform surgery inside the body.
As Philadelphia prepares to host what is likely to be one of the largest and most historically significant Democratic National Conventions, Drexel experts are available to comment on issues ranging from the logistics of putting together the massive gathering and its historical significance, as well as addressing the biggest political issues that will face presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.
Drexel University’s Leonard Pearlstein Gallery will join forces with The Clay Studio, a nonprofit educational institution, gallery and studio dedicated to teaching, creating, supporting and promoting the ceramic arts — to curate an exhibition celebrating the work of ceramic educators in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Teaching artists will display various works that exemplify the wide range of ceramic artwork within the region. The exhibition will be open Tuesday-Saturday, from noon-5 p.m. and run from June 28-Aug. 13.
Amtrak, Brandywine Realty Trust, Drexel University, PennDOT and SEPTA unveiled the Philadelphia 30th Street Station District Plan and announced the initiation of several follow-on projects to improve the immediate station area and catalyze future development throughout the District.
Drexel University has named Yi Deng, PhD, dean of its College of Computing & Informatics. Deng comes to Drexel after a seven-year tenure as dean of the College of Computing and Informatics at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte where his leadership contributed to dramatic growth in enrollment and research funding. Deng takes the helm of one of the nation’s oldest recognized institutions of computing and informatics studies, whose programs have consistently ranked among the best in preparing students for jobs in these rapidly expanding fields.
Drexel University broke ground on an expansion of the Korman Center, a 1958 building at the heart of Drexel’s campus that has served as a University landmark for decades. An $8 million gift from the Hyman Korman Family Foundation, paired with another $8 million from the University, will make the Korman makeover possible. The project will also create a classic campus green in the open space in front of and around the Korman Center, a popular student hangout known as the “Quad.”
The bounce of a ball, the jingle of a bell and the roar of the crowd — these are the sounds of goalball, the Paralympic sport of champions. Introduced to the world in the 1976 Summer Paralympics in Toronto, goalball is the first sport created for athletes with a visual impairment. Thirty years later, a group of Drexel University students are turning goalball into a video game that uses auditory and tactile feedback to capture the excitement and intensity of the sport.
Drexel University researchers will now have the opportunity to work alongside scientists from the Army Research Lab — the Army's central laboratory. The institutions recently signed an agreement that formally connects Drexel as an ARL "open campus" for research. With this agreement, the University strives to engage a diverse and wide-ranging network of faculty in collaborative efforts with ARL entities.
Borides are among the hardest and most heat-resistant substances on the planet, but their Achilles’ Heel, like so many materials’, is that they oxidize at high temperatures. Oxidation is the chemical reaction commonly known as corrosion or rusting — it can signal the end for a material’s structural integrity. But researchers from Drexel University, Linkoping University in Sweden and Imperial College London have produced an aluminum-layered boride whose unique behavior at high temperatures keeps it one step ahead of nature’s slow march toward high- temperature chemical degradation.
Radnor Property Group LLC and Drexel broke ground on a new mixed-use development project, Vue32, in University City. The new complex, designed by Erdy McHenry Architecture, will include a 176,000+ square-foot 16-story residential tower, for-sale townhomes, a Nobel Learning Communities preschool and a community plaza with spectacular views to Center City.
