The National Institute for Leadership Advancement for 2014 was held at UC San Diego this year. The future looks very promising with the excellent leaders that attended this conference. The variety of workshops and inspirational stories have given attendees excellent tools and inspiration to lead their chapters in this 2014-2015 fiscal year. SHPE National has presented […]
Congratulations to UC Merced for being selected as the hosting chapter for Region 1 RLDC. With the assistance and collaboration of the Silicon Valley Professional Chapter, San Francisco Professional Chapter, and the Fresno Professional Chapter, we look forward to an excellent conference for 2015!
The Bomba Cup is an event where each year all chapters from Region 1 compete in a soccer tournament. Winning team gets bragging rights for the entire year as the best soccer players our region has to offer.
SHPE stages regional leadership development conferences on a yearly basis for the leadership of the SHPE student chapters to improve their organizational, managerial, and technical skills. They take place in all of the seven SHPE regions. This program helps college students develop and improve their pre-college outreach programs and improve the infrastructure of SHPE student chapters.Student leaders learn […]
The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.
New uses for deep learning have been developed, report researchers, specificially reconstructing a hologram to form a microscopic image of an object and improving optical microscopy. Their new holographic imaging technique produces better images than current methods that use multiple holograms, and it's easier to implement because it requires fewer measurements and performs computations faster.
Renderings of 3-D cells in the body are traditionally displayed using 2-D media, such as on a computer screen or paper; however, the advent of Virtual Reality (VR) headsets means it is now possible to visualize and interact with scientific data in a 3-D virtual world.
In a breakthrough development, scientists have shown that they can successfully amplify light using electrically excited films of the chemically synthesized semiconductor nanocrystals known as quantum dots.
A new catalyst brings researchers one step closer to artificial photosynthesis -- a system that, just like plants, would use renewable energy to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into stored chemical energy. By both capturing carbon emissions and storing energy from solar or wind power, the invention provides a one-two punch in the fight against climate […]
