Jeehwan Kim, associate professor of mechanical engineering at MIT, is using his background in materials science to build a physical neural network and produce cheap semiconductor wafers – technologies that could help bring the artificial intelligence power of super computers to handheld devices.
Millions of people die each year as a result of soot or smoke inhalation from these wood-burning cookstoves. A team of students from MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering and MIT D-Lab are helping a start-up in Uganda manufacture charcoal briquettes that produce a cleaner burn, minimizing these health risks.
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.
Theberge, who was beloved by students, staff, and faculty, served as an administrative assistant for the mechanical engineering undergraduate program since 2012.
MIT addresses its own contributions to climate change through programs and initiatives like class 11.S938 / 2.S999, Solving for Carbon Neutrality at MIT, co-taught by Professor Timothy Gutowski.
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.
