Shock forces – at the cellular level

Engineer, 2012

A small spark ignites more than 1 million pounds of solid fuel to launch the space shuttle into space. An airbag deploys during an automobile accident in 30 milliseconds, preventing the driver from hitting the dashboard. A large round of ammunition punctures nearly five inches of armor on the side of a tank. What do […]

Enhancing infrastructure through innovative testing and engineering

Engineer, 2012

Each day, millions of Americans hop in their cars and drive across roads, over bridges and under signs without thinking twice about transportation infrastructure. Fortunately for the general public, Dr. Christopher Foley and other leading civil engineers are helping the government keep closer tabs on the upkeep, safety and cost of key components of the […]

Improving the lives of cerebal palsy patients with robot-enabled therapies

Engineer, 2012

Dr. Brian Schmit, professor of biomedical engineering, has invented half a dozen robots during his 17-year career as a neuroscientist. Robotics was a big part of what drew him to engineering originally, but what has kept his interest is how he uses what he invents. His newest project involves using one of his “older” — […]

A new platform for transformation

Engineer, 2011

message-dean

We know that today’s engineers, grounded in the strong foundation of theory and knowledge that has been the hallmark of a Marquette engineering education for more than 100 years, must also be creative thinkers, problem-solvers, communicators, designers and innovators. It is their ideas, their discoveries that can help us address real-world problems — the global […]
