Meet PhD student Greg Formosa, the design and controls mastermind behind the Endoculus, a robotic capsule endoscope capable of performing autonomous colonoscopies that was engineered in Associate Professor Mark Rentschler’s lab.
Meet Micah Prendergast (PhDMechEngr'19), expert in navigation and localization for the Endoculus, a robotic capsule endoscope developed in Mark Rentschler’s lab. For a robot making its way through the colon, navigation is no easy task.
Associate Professors Mark Borden hosted a summer school program for faculty from around the world on microbubbles this week in the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory on campus. CU Boulder Instructors included Todd Murray and Andrew Goodwin.
What if the wood used to build your house could decrease your electricity bill? In the race to save energy, Xiaobo Yin at CU Boulder and researchers at the University of Maryland have uncovered a way for buildings to dump heat.
A new machine at CU Boulder will allow researchers, including Assistant Professor Virginia Ferguson to see materials in 4D. The ZEISS Xradia 520 Versa is an X-ray microtomography imaging system — essentially an X-ray microscope.
Judges and public voted on Expo 2019 engineering projects they found to be most impressive. Six mechanical engineering teams received awards. Learn more about this year's Senior Design and Graduate Design projects and view our album of photos from the event.
Assistant Professor Nina Vance and her team examined emissions from cooking, cleaning, furniture and more. Using electronic monitoring equipment, they measured emissions inside a test kitchen at the Univeristy of Texas.
