Study Abroad, Aluminum Research, and IBB Art Show

Study Abroad in the city of Eger in Northern Hungary.

Students in the Scheller College of Business Leadership for Social Good Study Abroad Program in the village of Noszvaj, near the city of Eger in northern Hungary. One of their projects included working to preserve Roma cultural heritage. The caves, on top of which the students are standing, once housed the Roma and are now a place for artists from all over the world to visit and create. Photo taken July 3 by Karola Pap.

Aluminum material used in batteries.

A team of researchers led by Matthew McDowell, associate professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Materials Science and Engineering, is using aluminum foil to create batteries with higher energy density and greater stability. The new battery system could enable electric vehicles to run longer on a single charge and would be cheaper to manufacture — all while having a positive impact on the environment.
