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.
A planned new building is a critical starting point in the college’s ability to provide a hands-on education to many more engineering students and help keep pace with industry growth.
“The new facility will stimulate collaboration, spark research discoveries and serve as the focal point of our engineering campus, Robertson said.
Max Bock-Aronson says his UW engineering education, and the opportunities he had as a student, played a crucial role developing his entrepreneurial skills.
Unlike other radiative vapor condensers which can only operate at night, the new design works in direct sunlight and requires no energy input.
The team of UW–Madison engineers developed a simple and inexpensive do-it-yourself fitter that ensures a tighter mask seal around the wearer’s nose, mouth and face, as masks can leave gaps that could allow virus particles to escape.
In this Badger Talks interview, mechanical engineering professor Scott Sanders talks through some of the mask-fitting guidance.
Not only are top UW–Madison materials science students sought after by industry, but breakthroughs in materials developed at the university often have direct impacts on local businesses.
The start of mass vaccination for COVID-19 has raised the exciting prospect of being able to travel again in the near future. In this Badger Talks video, Laura Albert, professor of industrial and systems engineering, talks about what we can expect as we return.
The study may help structural engineers to understand environmental stressors of polymer composite materials and how to design them to resist microbial degradation.
A prototype “contactless” thermometer was created by borrowing the sensor from a commercially available thermometer and adding a microcontroller and distance sensor controlled by open-source code.
A team of researchers led by University of Wisconsin–Madison mechanical engineer Christian Franck is working on better ways to detect concussions and better protective equipment to prevent them.
UW–Madison’s newest trio of fellows in the National Academy of Inventors are responsible for scores of patents, and bring the university’s total academy membership to 10.
Once a refugee himself, senior Joel Baraka has invented "5 STA-Z" — a board game for students across sub-Saharan Africa that turns learning into fun.
