After 10 years of rejected applications and failed walk-on attempts in multiple cities, UW alum Jay Flores finally got the call to compete on American Ninja Warrior — and an opportunity to share his message about STEM and perseverance on television’s big stage.
Lennon Rodgers of the College of Engineering performed the scan on the 15-foot dugout canoe recovered in 2021 from the waters of Lake Mendota, part of the ancestral home of the Ho-Chunk Nation.
The new research details the framework for designing a network of AED-outfitted, autonomous flying drones, which could allow the life-saving devices to more quickly reach people experiencing cardiac arrest.
A team of UW–Madison mechanical engineers have pioneered the integration of several imaging technologies into a system that can study the fundamental mechanics of electron beam powder bed fusion in real time.
Not only did researchers find that the apps gather audio data while "mute" is activated; they could identify activities picked up when microphones weren't believed to be on, such as eating, playing music, typing and cleaning.
UW researchers have discovered a way to enable a prominent additive manufacturing technique called laser powder bed fusion to produce metal parts that have significantly fewer defects.
A research team will refine and test a novel idea for a traveling magnetic field strong enough to deflect harmful radiation from astronauts as they travel to Mars or set up bases around the moon.
The carbon nanotube could be used in lightweight, high-performance armor materials, for example, in bulletproof vests to better protect the wearer or in shields around spacecraft to mitigate damage from flying high-speed microdebris.
On Feb. 18, the creators at UW Makerspace turned to a light-hearted task: Waxing skis and snowboards.
This is the eleventh year in a row that the online engineering programs, offered through the College of Engineering’s Interdisciplinary Professional Programs, have been highly ranked among a competitive field of engineering and online programs.
Wei-Di Cheng, a 1993 engineering graduate, analyzed mechanical ground systems to propose, design, fabricate, test and deliver ground systems to support spacecraft and payload integration.
The awards recognize the outstanding academic and community-service efforts of students from traditionally underrepresented minority groups who are pursuing a degree in business or engineering.
The Madison Area Addiction Recovery Initiative offers an alternative to the use-arrest-use cycle of individuals who committed a nonviolent, drug use-related crime.
Students overwhelmingly enjoy the classes that enable them to put their calculus, chemistry, physics and other knowledge to use.
Every semester, the Inter Engr 170 freshman design course gives first-year University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers a chance to get valuable hands-on experience working on practical projects with real clients.
