Prof. Costas Chassapis PI of $3M NSF grant for Multiscale Engineered Systems Research.

Professor Costas Chassapis of Mechanical Engineering is PI of a recently awarded $3M grant from NSF's Graduate Education Division and the GK-12 program. The grant will provide support for up to 10 Stevens doctoral students per year over a 5 year period conducting research in the broad area of multiscale engineered systems. As part of the GK-12 program, PhD students will disseminate their research results to several participating high schools within the framework of the New Jersey Alliance for Engineering Education (NJAEE). The team includes Professors Sven Esche and Frank Fisher from Mechanical Engineering, Professor Rustam Stolkin from CEOE, Professor Lechler from the Howe School, and Elisabeth McGrath, Director of the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE). US citizens and permanent residents who are interested in this program and enrolling in the PhD program at Stevens should email Professor Chassapis for more information.
