  • Professor blends engineering and healthcare through research

    Though likely not the first thing to come to mind when discussing the field of engineering, Kennesaw State University associate professor Philippe Sucosky said there is much to unlock by viewing the human body from an engineer’s perspective. The cardiovascular system, for instance, really isn’t all that different from the typical plumbing inside a house. “You have a bunch of arteries and tubes connected together forming a complete system, so when you study the cardiovascular tree, there really isn’t much of a difference from studying the flow in a mechanical network of pipes,” said Sucosky, who teaches mechanical engineering in the Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering. “The connection between engineering and healthcare is very literal in that sense.”  –  October 05, 2020

  • KSU School of Music students learn how to build home recording studios

    Musicians who still want to work in a COVID-19 world can benefit greatly from a home recording studio. However, trying to figure out how to get started, what equipment is required, and how to use it effectively is a job in itself. A quick Google search for “how to build a home recording studio” nets over 78 million results. Kennesaw State University (KSU) School of Music (SOM) professors in the jazz concentration have made it much easier for their students by offering unique masterclasses on how to create a professional home recording studio, keeping in mind that student budgets vary widely.  –  September 30, 2020
