Burning questions on air pollution

A University of Utah engineering study shows restrictions on wood burning in Utah dramatically improve air quality.


The force is with U

U’s LUKE Arm stars at the start of the newest “Star Wars.”


Bionic breakthrough

U mechanical engineering assistant professor Tommaso Lenzi received two grants to further advance the “Utah Bionic Leg” technology, a self-powered prosthetic limb with a computer processor and motorized joints in the ankle and knee that enable an amputee to walk with more power and vigor, as well as better balance.


Star Wars-inspired prosthetic arm

U engineers help develop a motorized prosthetic arm that can sense touch and move with your thoughts.


A major merger

The U’s departments of Materials Science and Engineering and Metallurgical Engineering recently merged into a single academic unit.


Restoring hearing loss

U engineers are part of team to improve technology for the deaf.


Clear the air

U researchers find using a thermostat for heating and air conditioning systems that turn on and off based on air quality can clean the air in your home without using much more energy than a fan.


Energy Frontier Research

Researchers received $10.75 million Department of Energy grant for new center.


THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

U engineering study details proposed improvements to ease Little Cottonwood Canyon traffic.


2018 ROSENBLATT PRIZE FOR EXCELLENCE

Richard B. Brown, dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Utah, was honored with the U’s highest faculty accolade.
