Have a look at issues of Linux Journal from before the (recently) new editor joined - late last year I think. The tone swung away from academia a bit then.

They highlighted quite a few linux-based, engineering-oriented projects involving PhD students, especially in the US Navy. Eg, there was a fascinating article by some naval engineers discussing how they had used bash and BusyBox to do *all* the communications data processing  for a military satellite eg they compressed data in a pipe using gzip before sending it up!
