2017_08_01__0671_RU_Eng_Matheny.jpg Rutgers Students Invent Medical Devices for Disabled Children and Adults
Two summers ago, Rutgers Biomedical Engineering students immersed themselves at the Matheny School in Peapack, New Jersey, a nonprofit organization that is home to children and adults with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and other developmental disabilities. The students' goal: find ways to improve their independence and quality of life. After talking with staffers and students, the SoE students designed prototypes, including a motorized headrest for wheelchairs to give people with cerebral palsy a greater range of vision and reduce their reliance on caretakers.

Nicholas C WongCROP.jpg Alumni Q&A: Nick Wong BS'98, MS'99
"Rutgers gave me the basics for what I need to do at work every single day."
Back in eighth grade, Nicholas (Nick) Wong was asked what he wanted to do in the future. He wrote down "engineer." In 1998, Nick earned his BS in civil engineering, followed the next year with an MS in structural engineering - both from Rutgers. After working in several engineering firms after graduation, he founded Titan Engineers in 2005, a structural and consulting engineering corporation. Titan Engineers was a 2018 winner of the NJBIZ "Best Places to Work in New Jersey" award. Read the Q&A>>
