Peter Hancock, a UCF Psychology Pegasus Professor and University Trustee Chair, has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Fellow. His appointment, beginning January 2017, is in recognition of his contributions to adaptive human-systems engineering. Adaptive human-systems use direct information from on-line brain physiological monitoring. The systems adjust and adapt their operations to […]

Building a Pathway to Engineering for Our Daughters – Brick by Brick

As a father of young elementary and middle school-aged kids, I’m also curious to know exactly how my undergrad students came to be interested in mechanical engineering. An exchange with a UCF student might go like this: “You did a great job on the exam. Congrats! By the way, how did you get interested in […]

Peruvian Engineering Grads First to Receive Degrees in UCF Program

This UCF-Designed Tech is Amazing

A team of UCF scientists has developed a new process for creating flexible supercapacitors that can store more energy and be recharged more than 30,000 times without degrading. The novel method from the University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Center could eventually revolutionize technology as varied as mobile phones and electric vehicles. “If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,” said Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate who conducted much of the research.
