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.

  • Quantifying heart valve interstitial cell contractile state using highly tunable poly(ethylene glycol) hydrogels 

    Khang, Alex; Gonzalez Rodriguez, Andrea; Schroeder, Megan E.; Sansom, Jacob; Lejeune, Emma; Anseth, Kristi S.; Sacks, Michael S. (Elsevier BV, 2019-09)
    Valve interstitial cells (VIC) are the primary cell type residing within heart valve tissues. In many valve pathologies, VICs become activated and will subsequently profoundly remodel the valve tissue extracellular matrix ...
  • Mechanical MNIST - Multi-Fidelity 

    Lejeune, Emma (2020-07)
    Each dataset in the Mechanical MNIST collection contains the results of 70,000 (60,000 training examples + 10,000 test examples) finite element simulation of a heterogeneous material subject to large deformation. Mechanical ...
  • Active learning for efficient microfluidic design automation 

    McIntyre, David; Lashkaripour, Ali; Densmore, Douglas (IWBDA, 2020-08-03)
    Droplet microfluidics has the potential to eliminate the testing bottleneck in synthetic biology by screening biological samples encapsulated in water-in-oil emulsions at unprecedented throughput. Sophisticated screens ...
  • Efficient large-scale microfluidic design-space exploration: from data to model to data 

    Lashkaripour, Ali; McIntyre, David; Densmore, Douglas (IWBDA, 2020-08-03)
    Droplet microfluidics is well poised to improve the gold standard in many fields such as synthetic biology. However, the lack of available design automation tools that can create a microfluidic droplet generator based on ...
  • Dependence of the MR signal on the magnetic susceptibility of blood studied with models based on real microvascular networks 

    Cheng, Xiaojun; Berman, Avery J. L.; Polimeni, Jonathan R.; Buxton, Richard B.; Gagnon, Louis; Devor, Anna; Sakadzic, Sava; Boas, David A. (Wiley, 2019-06)
    PURPOSE: The primary goal of this study was to estimate the value of beta , the exponent in the power law relating changes of the transverse relaxation rate and intra-extravascular local magnetic susceptibility differences ...
  • Awake mouse imaging: from two-photon microscopy to blood oxygen level-dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging 

    Desjardins, Michèle; Kilic, Kivilcim; Thunemann, Martin; Mateo, Celine; Holland, Dominic; Ferri, Christopher G. L.; Cremonesi, Jonathan A.; Li, Baoqiang; Cheng, Qun; Weldy, Kimberly L.; Saisan, Payam A.; Kleinfeld, David; Komiyama, Takaki; Liu, Thomas T.; Bussell, Robert; Wong, Eric C.; Scadeng, Miriam; Dunn, Andrew K.; Boas, David A.; Sakadzic, Sava; Mandeville, Joseph B.; Buxton, Richard B.; Dale, Anders M.; Devor, Anna (Elsevier, 2019-06)
    BACKGROUND: Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in awake behaving mice is well positioned to bridge the detailed cellular-level view of brain activity, which has become available owing to recent advances in ...
  • Effect of residual interatrial shunt on migraine burden after transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale 

    Ben-Assa, Eyal; Rengifo-Moreno, Pablo; Al-Bawardy, Rasha; Kolte, Dhaval; Cigarroa, Ricardo; Cruz-Gonzalez, Ignacio; Sakhuja, Rahul; Elmariah, Sammy; Pomerantsev, Eugene; Vaina, Lucia M.; Ning, MingMing; Buonanno, Ferdinando S.; Hung, Judy W.; Inglessis, Ignacio; Palacios, Igor F. (JACC, 2020-02-10)
    OBJECTIVES: This study sought to evaluate the long-term effect of transcatheter patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure on migraineurs with and without aura and examine the effect of residual right-to-left shunt. BACKGROUND: ...
  • Minimum size for the top jet drop from a bursting bubble 

    Brasz, C. Frederik; Bartlett, Casey T.; Walls, Peter L. L.; Flynn, Elena G.; Yu, Yingxian Estella; Bird, James C. (American Physical Society, 2018-07-11)
    Jet drops ejected from bursting bubbles are ubiquitous, transporting aromatics from sparkling beverages, pathogens from contaminated water sources, and sea salts and organic species from the ocean surface to the atmosphere. ...
  • Threshold for discretely self-similar satellite drop formation from a retracting liquid cone 

    Brasz, C. Frederik; Berny, Alexis; Bird, James C. (American Physical Society, 2018-10-16)
    Predicting the size of droplets that pinch off from a liquid jet is important to applications ranging from bubble-initiated atmospheric aerosols to inkjet printing. These predictions are complicated by smaller satellite ...
