From the Diag to Pierpont Commons, Michigan Engineering has installed a series of posters featuring the cover of a book, "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind."
The posters ask engineers across campus one very important question: "What chapter are you on?"
In findings that help astrophysicists understand our corner of the galaxy, an international research team has shown that the soft X-ray glow blanketing the sky comes from both inside and outside the solar system.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have taken a major stride toward perfectly efficient lighting that is also relatively inexpensive and simple to make. The same material can also reveal the presence of water by changing color.
A University of Michigan professor of chemistry and engineering is among the 15 scientist educators selected as Howard Hughes Medical Institute professors, the institute announced Monday.
Natalia "Natasha" Andronova, a research scientist in the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences, died Sunday after a battle with brain cancer.
When we're strolling down memory lane, our brains recall just as much information while walking as while standing still — findings that contradict the popular science notion that walking hinders one's ability to think.
Software engineering students at the University of Michigan this fall will use IBM's "Jeopardy"-winning Watson system to develop apps that help children with special needs.
A College of Engineering faculty member will lead a new $25 million project to help nations with nuclear power safeguard their materials.
The project also will improve monitoring of nations that don't observe the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty.
A handheld radiation camera developed by U-M engineering researchers offers nuclear plant operators a faster way to find potentially dangerous hot spots and leaky fuel rods.
The university has a long tradition of entrepreneurship education dating back to 1927, but those early seeds have sprouted and grown into a lush garden of offerings during the last 12 years under President Mary Sue Coleman. As she wrote in a commentary published by Forbes in 2010:
The College of Engineering is seeking nominations for its 2014 Excellence in Staff Service Award Program.
