Mining minerals found 15,000 feet below sea level could help secure a low-carbon future, but at what cost? Researchers including Thomas Peacock, professor of mechanical engineering at MIT, are racing to understand the environmental impact of deep-sea mining.
MIT engineers led by Associate Professor Xuanhe Zhao have designed a double-sided tape that can seal tissues in just five seconds. The tape could eventually replace surgical sutures, which don’t work well in all tissues and can cause complications in some patients.
In MIT D-Lab class 2.729, Design for Scale, MIT students work with clients in the developing world to manufacture products in a more cost-efficient and effective way – from ambulances in Tanzania to an irrigation pump in Nepal.
An MIT team, including MechE alum Laureen Meroueh PhD ’20 and Professor Douglas P. Hart, have produced practical guidelines for generating hydrogen using scrap aluminum.
A study from MIT engineers, including Professor Evelyn Wang, Associate Professor Betar Gallant, and grad student Lenan Zhang, has for the first time analyzed and quantified how bubbles form on porous electrodes.
It is the ongoing and generous support of the MechE community that allows the Department to continue its cutting-edge research and attract the best and brightest students and faculty. From student fellowships, excellence funds, faculty chair endowments, and lab support, there are a multitude of ways to support the Department of Mechanical Engineering in its mission to change the world for the better.
