Neutrinos are one of the most common subatomic particles in the universe. However, with a mass close to zero and no electric charge...
The aerospace industry offers many career opportunities for engineers, who can apply their skills to challenges involving rockets, spacecraft, airplanes and more. Now, undergraduate students in the UW-Madison engineering mechanics degree program can focus their education on this field by selecting the new “aerospace engineering option.”
College of Engineering faculty members are leading two ambitious industry partnerships and contributing to two others as part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Promoting Industry Collaboration Initiative.
University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have made a unique, asymmetric material that behaves in a new and unexpected way: When this “chiral” material is squeezed or stretched, it also twists.
On July 8, 2011, the space shuttle Atlantis blasted off from the Kennedy Space Center into a cloudy sky in the last launch of the three-decade-old program...
Seals have an incredible ability to track their prey underwater thanks to the unique geometry of their whiskers. Unlike the smooth whiskers of cats and dogs, seal whiskers have wavy surfaces that help them detect disturbances in the water caused by their prey.
A significant advance in numerical fusion energy sciences by University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers provides a new tool for solving pressing challenges for ITER, the international fusion experiment under construction in France.
Deploying micro-scale nuclear reactors—microreactors—for on-site power generation at select U.S. government facilities could enhance their ability to recover during a power grid outage, according to a new study by University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers.
