July 27, 2016

Prof. Robert Dell and Chih-Shing (Stan) Wei, along with three ME grad students, William Foley, Nicholas Mitchell, and Anthony Edward Morris, co-authored six different papers that were accepted to be published this coming fall. Two of them are for the GRC (Geothermal Resources Council) annual meeting happening in October, and four of them are for ASME IMECE happening in November. A list of the papers can be found here.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
