More than 6,000 future scientists and engineers soaked up the UW-Madison experience last weekend during National Science Olympiad. The four-day odyssey included scores of specialized science workshops, a Wisconsin Showcase at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, a root-beer and brat bash on the Terrace, a UW Marching Band gig at the Kohl Center, and a midnight party at Union South. Oh, yeah … also a ton of competitive science on the engineering campus. The above video was produced by videographer David Nevala, with music from the Youngblood Brass Band.
It takes many hours of work to be ready to put together a bridge in minutes. The UW-Madison Steel Bridge Team designs, fabricates and tests a small bridge that members then assemble at a competition every spring. Waunakee-based Endres Manufacturing has helped them make it happen for the past 10 years.
Rajan Suri, a UW-Madison professor of industrial and systems engineering, discusses how quick response manufacturing can help companies reduce lead time, grow market share, and increase profitability by reducing non-value-added time, cutting inventory and increasing return on investment. Suri is author of a new book, “It’s About Time: The Competitive Advantage of Quick Response Manufacturing.”
Benedetta Cannestra, a UW-Madison sophomore in chemical and biological engineering, is one of six diversity scholars at UW-Madison supported by Rockwell Automation of Milwaukee. The innovative program offers full-ride scholarships and internships at Rockwell to Milwaukee-area students who show great promise for a career in engineering. This video was taken this summer during Cannestra’s summer internship at Rockwell.
John Yin, UW-Madison professor of chemical and biological engineering, has developed powerful computer modeling tools to improve the understanding of how viruses reproduce and spread — a critical step toward combating disease. Yin is one of the theme leaders in the new Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery.
Meet Elise Larson, a UW-Madison senior in biomedical engineering who epitomizes the shift toward interdisciplinary thinking. Larson is enrolled in a new certificate program that brings humanities principles to engineering, she works in a cutting-edge stem cell research lab and she’s leading an effort to design a public health clinic in Rwanda.
Winslow Sargeant has built a career that blends innovation and venture capitalism with a commitment to engineering education and academia in general. His expertise is nationally respected: August 18, President Barack Obama appointed Sargeant to be chief counsel of advocacy for the Small Business Administration.
Adam Richards, a senior in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, provides an inside look at “eMOO,” the university’s latest vehicle designed for the national Hybrid Vehicle Challenge.
Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Susan Hagness created the course Introduction to Society’s Grand Challenges to show students the impact engineers can make on the world.
“Several years ago, the National Academy of Engineering identified 14 Grand Challenges for the coming decade. It’s important for us to introduce students to these responsibilities and opportunities as soon as possible so that they can be inspired by these challenges.”
