A master of engineering program that began out of a lunch conversation between University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty and industry professionals is graduating its first class of 10 students this week.
UW-Madison engineer Katherine McMahon is integrating her expertise in wastewater engineering and in biological systems to study the bacterial community in different eutrophied lakes — two in Madison and one in China — to learn more about how those bacteria affect phosphorus cycling in the lakes.
A project by University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers has come one step closer to making fusion energy possible.
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.
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.
