Vanderbilt University, acting through program co-leads Owen Graduate School of Management (OGSM) and the School of Engineering (VUSE), has entered a partnership with NYC-based Trilogy Education Services to offer "The Vanderbilt Coding Boot Camp," beginning in January 2019. Although no formal announcement has yet been made about the new product, Skip Culbertson, executive director of Owen GSM's executive education department, confirmed for Venture Nashville that promotion of the non-degree, certificate-bearing program will begin within the next 60 days, with the first cohort of individual enrollees to be enrolled by 1Q 2019
SmartTruck, a small business in Greenville, SC, recently completed its first detailed unsteady analysis using modeling and simulation at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and has become the first company to request certification from the EPA through computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Access to the computational resources at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, enabled SmartTruck to successfully complete, for the first time, a detailed unsteady analysis using modeling and simulation. As a result, SmartTruck also became the first company to request certification through computational analysis instead of through physical testing.
An emerging pathogen that devours the skin of salamanders will be the subject of a new study funded by the National Science Foundation. Matt Gray and Debra Miller, both faculty members in the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture Center for Wildlife Health within the UT Department of Forestry, Wildlife and Fisheries, have been awarded a $2.5 million grant to lead a collaboration among scientists from Vanderbilt University, the University of Massachusetts-Boston, Texas Tech University, the University of California-Santa Barbara and Washington State University.
