Biomechatronics and Intelligent Robotics




Dr. Hao Su co-organized CIPASS Mechatronics Workshop with Jorge Gonzalez-Cruz, Dr. Feridun Delale, and Dr. Fred Moshary of the CIPASS Experiential Learning Team. Invited guests include Brian Wilson (CEO, DuroUAS), Dr. Biao Zhang (lead principal scientist, ABB), Ranjan Mishra (principal engineer, Medtronic), and Dale Swarts (Senior Director,Stryker).

Congratulations for Viktor Silivanov, Hadia Perez, Brian Lynn, and Tom Park for receiving the fellowship and successfully defending their summer research work on soft exoskeletons sponsored by the CiPASS (CCNY Initiative to Promote Academic Success in STEM) program. What a summer! We are proud of your achievement.
