A Chinese student in power engineering at Michigan Technological University takes what he’s learned back to his native village — hoping to keep the lights on more reliably.
Snowflakes need a tiny speck of dust to form. But how does that happen in the pristine air of the Arctic? Researchers at Michigan Technological University in the snowy Upper Peninsula may have the answer.
If time travelers exist, they’re covering their tracks pretty well. At least, that’s the word from a study set up by a physics professor at Michigan Technological University searching for prescient Web content on social media Web sites.
The latest staffing, leadership and boardroom news from Michigan’s technology-focused companies, institutions, and organizations.
Michigan Technological University will honor alumnus and longtime supporter John Edgar McAllister by building a new Welcome Center named for him to introduce future students and their families to the campus.
The National Science Foundation has awarded a $1.32 million grant to five Michigan universities for a project that will increase the academic success of underrepresented minority graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in STEM (science, technology , engineering, and mathematics) fields, as well as women graduate students in gender-imbalanced fields.
Until now, 3D printing has been a polymer affair, with most people in the maker community using the machines to make all manner of plastic consumer goods, from tent stakes to chess sets. A new low-cost 3D printer developed by Michigan Technological University’s Joshua Pearce and his team could add hammers to that list. The detailed plans, software and firmware are all freely available and open-source, meaning anyone can use them to make their own metal 3D printer.
A new collaboration of five Upper Peninsula manufacturing technology companies, along with the Houghton tech business accelerator MTEC SmartZone and Michigan Technological University, is pitching its expertise to the aerospace and defense industries.
Joshua Pearce is not one for understatement. “This is the beginning of a true revolution in the sciences,” says the author of “Open-Source Lab.” For cash-strapped researchers, he could be right. His new book, published by Elsevier, is a step-by-step do-it-yourself guide for making lab equipment.
Mechanical engineering faculty from a private Indian university will soon be pursuing their Ph.D.’s from Michigan Technological University.
