The University of Georgia College of Engineering marks its ten-year anniversary! Established July 1, 2012, the college has grown from approximately 400 students to more than 2,600. More than 140 faculty and staff members are performing next-generation research and partnering with communities across Georgia and beyond to tackle society's most pressing challenges. And we're just getting started! The college will host a celebration the week of Sept. 19 to mark this important milestone.

Yanjun Yang, doctoral student in the College of Engineering, is the lead author of the research article Silver nanotriangle array based LSPR sensor for rapid coronavirus detection. Featured this week in The Red & Black, Yang and her colleagues found using LSPR wavelengths can be a more rapid and economical method for detecting COVID-19 virus in saliva samples with a high degree of acuracy.
