Even if you are not a cook, you might have wondered why a pinch of flour (or any small particles) thrown into a bowl of water will disperse in a dramatic fashion, radiating outward as if it was exploding. Pushpendra Singh, PhD, a mechanical engineering professor at NJIT who has studied and written about the phenomenon, has not only thought about it, but can explain why. >>
Ralph Izzo believes that our society is steering a very unsustainable course when it comes to energy — and he speaks with authority. In the first Technology and Society Forum presentation at NJIT for spring 2009, Izzo will explore how the impacts of climate change and an uncertain economy make it imperative to redefine our complex relationship with energy. >>

Pushpendra Singh, PhD, professor in the department of mechanical engineering at NJIT, has been elected as a fellow of the American Physical Society. Singh was recognized for his outstanding contributions to the development of efficient algorithms for the direct numerical simulations of multiphase fluids. >>

KUDOS - November 2007

November 01, 2007
NJIT Professor Named Fellow of American Physical SocietyPushpendra Singh, PhD, professor in the department of mechanical engineering, has been elected a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).  Singh was recognized for his outstanding contributions to the development of efficient algorithms for the direct numerical simulations of multiphase fluids (DNS), and for using the DNS technique in conjunction with experiments as a tool for understanding the physics of a broad range of multiphase systems. NJIT Student Awarded Google Hispanic College Fund ScholarshipOscar Tapia, a computer technology major at NJIT, is a recipient of  the 2007 Google Hispanic College Fund Scholarship. The program provides awards of $5,000 to both undergraduate and graduate students who have demonstrated academic excellence in the fields of computer science and computer engineering and who have made significant contributions to their communities.  >>
