This month's guest is Shahram Rahimi, department head for Computer Science & Engineering.
In 2015, MSU’s Space Cowboys soared above all opponents at the international collegiate rocket competition, placing first out of 70 universities from seven countries. That’s makes them the best in the world and they’re still climbing.
Mississippi State was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration in 2015 as the National Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems. That means our teams are writing the flight plans for a new industry right on our MSU campus.
Emerging technology and advances in wireless communications have increased the nation’s vulnerability to cyber-attacks. One of the nation’s best cybersecurity education programs is MSU’s. Our innovative curriculum offers hands-on opportunities for students to learn both theoretical and practical applications – from anticipating and defending against viruses to disarming malware and derailing takeovers.
As supercomputers go, Mississippi State has one of the fastest in the world. So fast that it’s capable of 593 trillion calculations per second. Most people pass that off just another interesting fact until they get a look at what it actually does.
As one of the nation's leading research universities, MSU is driven to lead the way in innovative research, discover solutions to real-world problems, and ignite the futures of students from across the globe. We are ready for the future. We are the future.
As a leader in integrated computational materials engineering, MSU stands at the forefront of research of mechanical responses for the brain under car crashes, football concussions and military explosions.
At Mississippi State, our award-winning teams are developing The Car of the Future: a lighter, more cost-effective hybrid featuring automatic torque vectoring for more precision driving, a lighter battery for optimized energy storage, a regenerative braking system, and technologies that lead to energy independence with no environmental impact.
