The College of Engineering at Boston University is a community of students, faculty, and staff focused on advancing science and technology through research and discovery, and preparing students to be technology leaders in the 21st century. Undergraduate students participate in a comprehensive core curriculum that sets the foundation for their engineering studies while delivering a breadth of education across the humanities, mathematics, and social and natural sciences. Through an array of majors and concentrations, they can study aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical, manufacturing or mechanical engineering, as well as nanotechnology, and energy technologies and environmental engineering. They also have the opportunity work side-by-side with research faculty in a number of modern, high-tech facilities. Graduate students partake in myriad programs and research opportunities leading to doctoral or master’s degrees in biomedical, computer, computer systems, electrical, manufacturing, mechanical, global manufacturing, photonics, systems, or materials science and engineering.

  • The impact of payer status on hospital admissions: evidence from an academic medical center 

    Zhao, Yanying; Paschalidis, Ioannis C.; Hu, Jianqiang (2021-09-07)
    BACKGROUND: There are plenty of studies investigating the disparity of payer status in accessing to care. However, most studies are either disease-specific or cohort-specific. Quantifying the disparity from the level of ...
  • Quantitative birefringence microscopy for imaging the structural integrity of CNS myelin following circumscribed cortical injury in the rhesus monkey 

    Blanke, Nathan; Go, Veronica; Rosene, Douglas L.L.; Bigio, Irving J. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2021-03-22)
    Significance: Myelin breakdown is likely a key factor in the loss of cognitive and motor function associated with many neurodegenerative diseases. Aim: New methods for imaging myelin structure are needed to characterize ...
  • Informative predictors of pregnancy after first IVF cycle using eIVF practice highway electronic health records 

    Xu, Tingting; de Figueiredo Veiga, Alexis; Hammer, Karissa C.; Paschalidis, Ioannis C.; Mahalingaiah, Shruthi (2022-01-17)
    The aim of this study is to determine the most informative pre- and in-cycle variables for predicting success for a first autologous oocyte in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle. This is a retrospective study using 22,413 ...
  • Glass-fiber-reinforced polymeric film as an efficient protecting layer for stable Li metal electrodes 

    Gao, Shilun; Cannon, Andrew; Sun, Feiyuan; Pan, Yiyang; Yang, Dandan; Ge, Sirui; Liu, Nian; Sokolov, Alexei P.; Ryan, Emily; Yang, Huabin; Cao, Peng-Fei (Elsevier BV, 2021-08)
    [SUMMARY] With numerous reports on protecting films for stable lithium (Li) metal electrodes, the key attributes for how to construct these efficient layers have rarely been fully investigated. Here, we report a rationally ...
  • Lattice setup for quantum field theory in AdS2 

    Brower, Richard C.; Cogburn, Cameron V.; Fitzpatrick, A. Liam; Howarth, Dean; Tan, Chung-I (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)
    Holographic conformal field theories (CFTs) are usually studied in a limit where the gravity description is weakly coupled. By contrast, lattice quantum field theory can be used as a tool for doing computations in a wider ...
  • Sarc-Graph: automated segmentation, tracking, and analysis of sarcomeres in hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes 

    Zhao, Bill; Zhang, Kehan; Chen, Christopher S.; Lejeune, Emma (2021-10)
    A better fundamental understanding of human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs) has the potential to advance applications ranging from drug discovery to cardiac repair. Automated quantitative ...
  • SoK: hate, harassment, and the changing landscape of online abuse 

    Thomas, Kurt; Akhawe, Devdatta; Bailey, Michael; Boneh, Dan; Bursztein, Elie; Consolvo, Sunny; Dell, Nicola; Durumeric, Zakir; Kelley, Patrick Gage; Kumar, Deepak; McCoy, Damon; Meiklejohn, Sarah; Ristenpart, Thomas; Stringhini, Gianluca (IEEE, 2021-05)
    We argue that existing security, privacy, and antiabuse protections fail to address the growing threat of online hate and harassment. In order for our community to understand and address this gap, we propose a taxonomy for ...
  • A first look at zoombombing 

    Ling, Chen; Stringhini, Gianluca; Balci, Utkucan; Blackburn, Jeremy (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2022-03)
    We conducted the first data-driven study of calls for zoombombing attacks. We analyzed 223 calls for zoombombing posted on Twitter and 4chan. We found that most calls for zoombombing come from insiders who have legitimate ...
  • The evolution of the manosphere across the web 

    Ribeiro, Manoel Horta; Blackburn, Jeremy; Bradlyn, Barry; De Cristofaro, Emiliano; Stringhini, Gianluca; Long, Summer; Greenberg, Stephanie; Zannettou, Savvas (2021-06-07)
    We present a large-scale characterization of the Manosphere, a conglomerate of Web-based misogynist movements focused on “men’s issues,” which has prospered online. Analyzing 28.8M posts from 6 forums and 51 subreddits, ...
  • Understanding the use of fauxtography on social media 

    Wang, Yuping; Tahmasbi, Fatemeh; Blackburn, Jeremy; Bradlyn, Barry; De Cristofaro, Emiliano; Magerman, David; Zannettou, Savvas; Stringhini, Gianluca (2021-06-07)
    Despite the influence that image-based communication has on online discourse, the role played by images in disinformation is still not well understood. In this paper, we present the first large-scale study of fauxtography, ...
