A project by University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers has come one step closer to making fusion energy possible.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has named a University of Wisconsin–Madison engineering professor to lead its Office of Fusion Energy Science, located within the DOE Office of Science.
Using a unique combination of barium titanate and tin, University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers have made the first known material that's stiffer than diamond.
A unique Web site that pools information from many databases will help public audiences and Wisconsin transportation officials gain a broader perspective on traffic safety issues and needs.
Notable energy experts from across the United States and as far away as France will consider energy-production impacts and choices at a symposium hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
University of Wisconsin–Madison engineering student Steve Preston is working to construct the outdoor exhibit "Portals to an Architecture" on the College of Engineering campus.
With $16 million in funding over five years from the U.S. Department of Transportation, UW–Madison transportation engineers will drive their research, education and technology-transfer efforts to the national level. President Bush will sign the "Safe, Accountable, Flexible and Efficient Transportation Act: A Legacy for Users" Wednesday in Aurora, Ill. The bill designates UW–Madison as one of 10 National University Transportation Centers charged with advancing research on critical national transportation issues and expanding the workforce of transportation professionals.
It was easy to blame last spring's flooding in Dane County on record-setting rains. But people are as much at fault as the weather, says Ken Potter, civil and environmental engineering professor.
Relieving the growing congestion on interstate highways and city streets will require more than simply building additional roads. Engineering is part of the solution, but economic, political, social and environmental considerations also determine what can and should be done. That's the concept behind a new interdisciplinary graduate-level certificate program offered by the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at UW–Madison.
As a result of work by a team of civil engineers and environmental scientists, the campus now can be seen from a bird's eye view with the accuracy of a conventional map.
