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.
During IAP, MIT.nano collaborated with MIT MechE to offer a three-module course on the basics of and resources for human subjects research, as well as technology for symptoms monitoring during the Covid-19 pandemic.
MechE faculty are passionate, out-of-the-box thinkers who love to get their hands dirty.
