The Year Ahead, According to Engineers

Some of 2022’s top national stories have strong ties to engineering. Supply chain issues continued to strain the nation this year, with gas prices rising sharply before gradually falling. 

In the summer, the federal government passed the $280 billion CHIPS and Science Act to boost microchip production and make the U.S. more competitive around the globe. The funding will also bolster semiconductor manufacturing. 

That was followed by the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes provisions to address climate change. 

In November, NASA began a new era in space exploration with the launch of the Space Launch System and the Artemis mission. 

With the new year on tap, experts from the College of Engineering are looking into the future. Some have predictions for 2023. Others are addressing what must happen next within their respective research fields. 

From the future of aviation to wearable technology to sustainable AI and more, this is what some of our College's experts expect in 2023.
