“It didn’t hit me until I got back to the facility and saw how many people are coming to volunteer. There are so many people who are giving up a lot to do this. It’s really, truly amazing to be a part of it.”
The group has built prototypes and launched a website where it's encouraging healthcare facilities, manufacturers and donors to fill out an intake form to help assess need and build more connections while production capacity is rapidly expanded.
To grow layers of single-crystal oxides for electronic components requires neighboring layers to interlock like Lego blocks. A new method throws out that limitation, producing new capabilities for data storage, sensing, energy technologies, biomedical devices and many other applications.
The university's civil and environmental engineering students will host the regional competition April 2–4 and the national competition June 13–15. UW–Madison won five consecutive national titles from 2003 to 2007.
“If we can understand the key factors causing cell migration, then we could perhaps develop new treatments to speed up wound healing,” says Jacob Notbohm, an assistant professor of engineering physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
The UW–Madison College of Engineering's Makerspace held a workshop Oct. 24 to teach the basics of thermoforming and mold making by creating Halloween masks. Makerspace Workshops are geared toward newcomers and are open to all UW–Madison students, faculty, staff and alumni.
New accelerated Master of Science in Design + Innovation engages five disciplines, sparks creativity, excites employers
Combining expertise from five schools and colleges with team-based interaction, the program promises to offer students a breadth of highly desired skills.
Reversing baldness could someday be as easy as wearing a hat, thanks to a noninvasive, low-cost hair-growth-stimulating technology developed by UW–Madison engineers.
Dumesic was selected for his pioneering work on novel catalytic processes for converting plant material into advanced fuels, biodegradable plastics, and other renewable chemicals.
Students from the University of Wisconsin–Madison are facing off against teams from around the world with their concept for an ultrafast futuristic form of transportation in the fourth annual SpaceX Hyperloop Competition.
UW-Madison engineers have devised a method to create pieces of “smart” glass that can recognize images without requiring any sensors or circuits or power sources.
MacDon set up shop in Madison in 2015 for a simple reason: Because of the abundance of engineers with farm experience, mostly educated at UW–Madison.
