Deep Learning Approach to Molecular Property Prediction
BluePallet was formed in 2020 through a merger between Velloci, a FinTech platform, and EchoSystem, a chemical marketplace founded in 2017. BluePallet was built with the support and advice of The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) and its 400-plus members and affiliate companies and based on the platform created by BluePallet founder and CEO, Scott Barrows and now utilized by Ticketmaster, Live Nation, and the NFL. Wisecube is a team of veteran data scientists and engineers that focus on solutions for the Life Sciences Industry. They have been building and operating data driven products and platforms for many decades. They have taken their passion for data and have chosen to apply it in the life sciences domain where they can have a truly life changing impact. This ChemE DIRECT graduate student team will work to integrate the Chemprop library into a small molecule modeling platform, Dryad. This will involve three phases: PHASE 1: Build baseline models for a list of molecular properties. These will be neural network models for classification and regression. PHASE 2: Deploy the models to the Dryad. This will involve writing the code for taking a SMILES string and producing a prediction. PHASE 3: Experiment to improve the models. This phase is a stretch goal, but offers the opportunity to try novel modeling approaches to reach state-of-the-art performance. The datasets of the models to be built are QM8, QM9, ESOL, FreeSolv, Lipophilicity, PDBbind, PCBA, MUV, HIV, BBBP, Tox21, SIDER, and ClinTox.

Developing a synthetic railbelt power system model
A team of electrical and chemical engineering graduate students on a capstone project focused on developing a synthetic power system model of Alaska’s Railbelt transmission system.
Third annual Boeing capstone
Students earned their wings during a spring quarter capstone project undertaken in partnership with Boeing. Fittingly, they worked on a novel design for a wingtip end cap that was produced using 3D printing.
Students design a rover to help fish
As part of an industry capstone project, engineering students created a rover to inspect sewer pipes and culverts for damage that may prevent fish migration.
