June 21, 2019 - Last week, faculty and grad students were recognized for their entries in several competitions at the premier manufacturing research conference, NAMRC.
June 20, 2019 - MechSE's Taher Saif, along with Justin Rhodes from the Department of Psychology and Jonathan Sweedler from the Department of Chemistry, will aim to identify the chemicals released from muscles when they contract. The chemicals enhance neuron communication.
June 20, 2019 - Alumnus Marcus Bowman Crotts (MSME '56) was recognized as one of the MechSE Distinguished Alumni in 1980. He passed away June 8, 2019.
June 14, 2019 - MechSE professor Tonghun Lee hosted the Center for UAS Propulsion, or CUP program, review on April 30 and Industry-Academia Connection Days May 1-2.
June 10, 2019 - Professor Emeritus Clark Bullard has been named a recipient of the National Wildlife Federation's National Conservation Special Achievement Award.
June 7, 2019 - Among those featured are MechSE undergraduate and ROTC cadet Ryan Nixon and MechSE graduate student Lt. Daniel Meaney.
May 31, 2019 - Professor Harley Johnson has discovered for a small flake of crystalline material that is weakly bonded to a crystalline substrate, it is possible to induce rotation of the flake by applying strain to the substrate. This may make it possible to achieve the particular relative rotation between flake and substrate required for the recently discovered 'magic' angle effect in bilayer graphene, at which unconventional superconductivity can be found.
May 17, 2019 - Collaborations between Professor Leon Liebenberg in MechSE and the Abbott Power Plant on campus have resulted in more self-directed learning for undergrads.
May 16, 2019 - The building renaming honors Illinois alumnus Sidney Lu, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1981.
May 10, 2019 - Zayo Group Holdings CEO Dan Caruso (BSME '86) will present the keynote speech at this weekend's College of Engineering graduation ceremony.
May 8, 2019 - Amy LaViers introduces a novel point of view from which to observe robotic capabilities, and the groundbreaking aspect of her work is her particular counting model that has not been used before in robotics.
