Professor Surya Kalidindi of the Department of Materials Science & Engineering has been notified by DARPA that he is being awarded a five year grant for $461K. This is the Drexel component of a larger grant with Brigham Young University as PI. The focus of Surya's study is "Modeling Microstructure Evolution in Friction Stir Welding".
This fiscal year, the total of NEW grants to our Materials Science and Engineering Department is over $8M and counting! This has also been a good year for Dr. Kalidindi with new grants as a PI or co-PI this year over $1.3M.
