With just a push of a button, faculty and students can create dozens of design variations for anything they want to build. It's all thanks to Cornell's partnership with engineering-software company Autodesk, which is helping students win competitions and improve their research.
A new study describes a breakthrough method for imaging the physical and chemical interactions that sequester carbon in soil at near atomic scales, which may have implications for mitigating climate change.
By delving into scientific and economic data, Cornell engineers have examined whether New York could achieve a statewide carbon-neutral economy by 2050. Their finding: Yes – and with five years to spare.
