Prestigious DARPA Award: Dr. Kourosh Shoele


AME is proud to announce that Dr. Kourosh Shoele is a recent recipient of DARPA's Young Faculty Award! The long-term goal of DARPA’s Young Faculty Award program is to develop the next generation of academic scientists, engineers and mathematicians who will focus significant portions of their careers on Department of Defense and national security issues. Congratulations, Dr. Shoele!

Welcome New REU MASS Students!


The AME Center has some new faces this summer as it welcomes undergraduate students in engineering for an educational enhancement program that will involve them directly in advanced research activities including the development of micro air vehicles, multi-modal robots, active flow control, aeroacoustics, sensors & actuators, smart materials, energy harvesting and storage, and much more. Take a look at their projects!

Celebrating a New Partnership: Air Force Research Laboratory


The Air Force Research Laboratory at Eglin will fund a $400,000 grant to create the Air Force Research Laboratory Scholars program at the College of Engineering. The program will bring students into the lab environment where they can directly benefit from working with faculty researchers on Air Force-related research. AME will be one of two centers housing this effort!

AME Open House Highlights


Every Spring, Innovation Park bustles with local community members who are curious to explore the research laboratories of the area's leading experimental and theoretical thinkers. On February 23rd, the AME building showcased fan favorites such as Augmented Reality demonstrations, infrared imaging of ice cream ingestion, dry ice bubble generation, and an introduction to the latest humanoid addition to AME, Cassie. Check out some of the highlights and images from the event, and be sure to make it out next year!

Introducing: Dr. Christian Hubicki


AME is proud to welcome to the center Dr. Christian Hubicki and his newly launched Optimal Robotics Laboratory (ORL) within CISCOR! The launch has been marked by the arrival of CASSIE--an Agility Robotics project which Christian helped incubate and design during his graduate research at Oregon State University. Don't be alarmed if you run into a robotic ostrich-like creature patrolling among the geese in Innovation Park!

Going Green: AME joins FSU Sustainable Campus


The AME building has been recently certified as a Green Office at Florida State University. As part of this program, academic departments and research centers at FSU set goals and implement green practices in areas including; energy conservation, waste reduction, recycling, transportation, IT, and purchasing. By completing sustainability objectives, organizations contribute to the mission of FSU Sustainable Campus: promoting resource conservation while benefiting via cost savings.
