Nearly 40% of the Michigan Marching Band are engineering students! Today all the newbies got their U-M instruments and started drilling for the upcoming football season.
Our lab hosted a design seminar for some korean high school students interested in the field of design and human engineering early on during my research internship. These are some photos of me interacting with the students. Although many students were shy about their english speaking abilities I was able to communicate and help guide them through the design process with no problems. I worked in the Innovation and Industrial Design Lab at UNIST and learned many things about the product development process and the relationship between engineering and industrial design.
MABEL’s Big Adventure!
MABEL, once dubbed the world’s fasted running bipedal robot, has served her tenure as the primary research robot of U-M engineering professor Jessy Grizzle. She’s starting her retirement in the biomechanics exhibit at the Chicago Field Museum.
Would you use your urine to save the planet?
Abe Noe-Hays applies pasteurized urine to a test bed of lettuce. Abe Noe-Hays is a co-founder of Rich Earth Institute. The institute promotes collecting and using human urine as a plant fertilizer to reduce global water pollution and provide affordable fertilizer to farmers. The institute works with the University of Michigan engineering researchers to test the public health safety of urine fertilizer.

Are you drunk? There’s an app for that — coded by minors. An Android app that detects whether a person is sober or drunk is just one of the apps designed by high school students at a Michigan Engineering camp. The idea is to help students move beyond being consumers of technology, and become inventors of technology. MiBytes is a two-week camp organized by Computer Science and Engineering. #Umich #UmichEngin
#UmichEngin space geeks in action!
The Michigan Aeronautical Science Association (MASA) has returned to campus with a Tier 2 ranking from the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition in Green River, Utah. The international competition requires university teams to build a rocket that will reach as close as possible to a specific altitude target while carrying a 10-pound payload. MASA competed in the Basic Category, having an altitude requirement of 10,000 feet above ground level.
HAIL TO THE VICTORS!! The University of Michigan Solar Car Team just won its fifth consecutive American Solar Challenge! Congrats on an amazing performance from a young team (due to turnover and graduation, none of these students had ever raced before). You have made everyone very proud! http://umicheng.in/1qb4KOo
Here are some pics from the team’s Flickr. Photos: Darren Cheng
When darkness falls…engineers go out exploring campus! Love these pics streaming in from the tag #UmichEngin18!
