Christina Koch: Women ‘can do absolutely anything they want’

Before she spent 328 days aboard – and sometimes outside – the International Space Station, Christina Koch spent five years at North Carolina State University.1 And as she prepares to deliver a commencement address to 9,100 NC State graduates in a virtual ceremony Friday evening, Koch (pronounced ‘Cook’) says NC State was about much more than the substantial physics and electrical engineering classes she took there.

NASA Interns Extending Internetworking Off-World

Ryan Daugherty, a computer engineering student at North Carolina State University, catalogued the required installation process for a DTN ground node. This program repository and related documentation will simplify implementing new DTN ground nodes, making it more straightforward for new users to adopt DTN.

New wireless, implantable chip from NC State could help fight Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s

“Our goal was to create a research tool that can be used to help us better understand the behavior of different regions of the brain, particularly in response to various forms of neural stimulation,” says Yaoyao Jia, corresponding author of a paper on the work and an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University. “This tool will help us answer fundamental questions that could then pave the way for advances in addressing neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.”

Cyborg cockroaches designed to complete tasks inside your HOME can carry objects across the room, transform into a display and draw objects on paper

In November 2014, researchers at North Carolina State University fitted cockroaches with electrical backpacks complete with tiny microphones capable of detecting faint sounds. The idea is that cyborg cockroaches, or ‘biobots’, could enter crumpled buildings hit by earthquakes, for example, and help emergency workers find survivors. ‘In a collapsed building, sound is the best way to find survivors,’ said Alper Bozkurt, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University.
