Students, including MechE senior and president of the MIT Radio Society Milo Hooper, have led efforts to preserve the iconic radar dome landmark on campus for future generations of education and research.May 7, 2021 Six from MIT named 2021 Knight-Hennessy Scholars
MechE senior Orisa Coombs and recent alum Max Kessler '20 have been selected for the newest cohort of the prestigious Knight-Hennessy Scholars program and will begin graduate studies at Stanford University this fall.May 5, 2021 Innovations in water accessibility
Mechanical engineering senior Flora Klise is pursing her passion for water research and preparing to launch a career in water innovation.
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.
Professor Rohit Karnik addresses real-world challenges with his micro- and nano-fluidics research, uncovering the unique behavior of fluid flow at the molecular level.
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.
