A group of mechanical engineering seniors at the University of Colorado Boulder have designed a water-purification system called Puresip, which is housed inside a bottlecap and shines ultraviolet radiation through a straw to purify the water as the user drinks.
Professor Shelly L. Miller is a problem solver and an air pollution engineer. She finds reward and value when solving issues with immediate benefits, such as improved public health. Doing her work through a community partnership model is a match made in heaven.
PhD student Aniya Khalili was looking for a research lab that would match her values. She found that match in 2019 with Professor Shelly Miller and was introduced to the practice of community-engaged scholarship.
A group of mechanical engineering seniors at the University of Colorado Boulder have designed an adjustable lower limb prosthetic called OneLimb Assembly, which will help reduce the number of new fittings and assemblies.
Dean Keith Molenaar said the college’s climb from No. 20 public in 2016 to No. 10 public in 2024 represents a commitment to leading large-scale interdisciplinary research that generates fundamental knowledge and translates to positive impact on society.
Say “hello” to the robots of the future: They’re soft and flexible enough to bounce off walls or squeeze into tight spaces. And when you’re done with them, you can toss these machines into a compost bin to decompose.
A group of mechanical engineering seniors at the University of Colorado Boulder have helped bridge the gap between athletic performance and engineering by designing a sleep cabin prototype, where athletes can relax and recover in optimal conditions between games.
180 middle schoolers from STEM Launch in Thornton, Colorado, had the chance to see first-hand how awe-inspiring engineering can be, thanks to an outreach fair organized by the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering.
