In downtown Wausau, an old strip mall hides one of Wisconsin’s most sophisticated e-commerce systems, dedicated to selling shoes online, an operation built with the help of UW–Madison.
Conveyor maker Nercon's leaders learned new productivity techniques from UW–Madison's Engineering Professional Development department.
An idea hatched during an engineering class at the University of Wisconsin–Madison promises to reduce waste in a common industrial mixing process.
UW-Madison researchers began a two-year grant from the University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute (WRI) to examine water samples taken from 22 monitoring wells in and around Dane County to try to determine the geological strata that contribute to elevated radium levels in groundwater.
Student keynote speaker Terrence Thurk, who's graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering, was selected after submitting a video showing his passion for UW–Madison.
What’s the future of high-speed transportation? A team of UW–Madison students thinks it’s on the right track — actually, more of a tube — with Badgerloop, a 200-mph pod that levitates its passenger through an above-ground vacuum tube.
It’s hard to take Chris Nguyen seriously when he says, “I’m just a regular guy.” After all, he drew leaders from international industrial giant GE to the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus Monday bearing awards and scholarship money.
For decades, scientists have tried to harness the unique properties of carbon nanotubes to create high-performance electronics that are faster or consume less power. Now, for the first time, University of Wisconsin–Madison materials engineers have created carbon nanotube transistors that outperform state-of-the-art silicon transistors.
Spinning large objects nonstop takes a lot of time and mechanical energy. So scanning from a stationary position could speed up long-range detection and communications.
