Our Engineers Respond

Magazine Cover

For disciplines like engineering that often involve hands-on work, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant a lot of ingenuity — the kind we’ve seen time and again from our faculty and staff. Rice Engineering researchers have promptly jumped into action, marshaling resources to address the global pandemic. In this Fall 2020 issue of Rice Engineering Magazine, you’ll read about how our engineers responded to the pandemic by using optimization models to plan nursing schedules, collaborating with physicians to make improvements to surgical masks and developing a mobile phone-based, rapid COVID-19 test.
