Milivoje M. Kostic
Milivoje M. Kostic, professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been appointed as a guest-editor of the special issue of Entropy journal “Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics,” an international and interdisciplinary open access journal. The goal of the special issue is to put certain physical and philosophical concepts in perspective, to revisit...
Scientists from Northern Illinois University and 25 other institutions worldwide are planning an experiment that could open the doors to new realms of particle physics – and new opportunities for NIU students to participate in leading-edge research. But first the core of the experiment – a complex electromagnet that spans 50 feet in diameter –must...
Aaron McKeown, part of the Supermileage Team, a senior in Mechanical Engineering.
Senior Design Day, the NIU College of Engineering and Engineering Technology’s annual rite of spring, brought out the creativity and talents of graduating seniors. Projects on display at the May 3 event ranged from a scale model of a “smart home” to a home Hibachi grill adapter. In the corridors and labs of the engineering...

The NIU Foundation Venture Grants Committee has announced Lichuan Liu and Federico Sciammarella as recipients of the 2013 Venture Grants. In partnership with NIU’s Technology Transfer Office and the Northern Illinois Research Foundation, the NIU Foundation Grants Committee has chosen the proposals that most closely exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit, vision and potential for marketability reflected...
CEET Senior Design Day 2012
NIU’s College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (CEET) is gearing up for what students are anticipating to be the best Senior Design Day yet. Seniors from CEET will present their senior design projects Friday, May 3, to faculty, staff, other students and corporate partners of the college. Seniors spend at least one semester preparing, designing...
Promod Vohra, dean of the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, celebrates the grand opening with Nigel Blakeway, Omron CEO and president of the Omron Foundation.
More than 15 years ago, the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology partnered with Omron to provide internships to NIU students. In working with NIU students and faculty, Omron became fond of CEET’s curriculum, seeing that it had laid a great theoretical platform for students entering the workforce. Later, Omron donated safety and automation equipment...
Justin Whiting
Mechanical Engineering undergraduate Justin Whiting received the ASM Chicago Regional Chapter Award, given to only one student a year. Facing competition from students representing other engineering schools in the Chicago area, it is a great honor for Whiting. According to the American Society of Metals, “the Chicago Regional Chapter Award recognizes and encourages students to...

NIU’s College of Engineering and Engineering Technology is committed to strengthening the pipeline of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students through middle school and high school programming. Building a pipeline of young students and funneling them into these disciplines ultimately ensures a more technically powered workforce for the future. One of the ways this...
NIU mechanical engineering students explore DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport
NIU’s College of Engineering and Engineering Technology seeks ways of going beyond the classroom to experience the industry first-hand. Last month, Nicholas Pohlman took his Mechanical Engineering 453 class to the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport for an up-close viewing of a turbo-jet engine and supersonic aircraft. The trip related to many topics discussed in class...
Dan Gebo, Paul Kelter and Zhili Xiao
NIU has named Dan Gebo in anthropology, Paul Kelter in literacy education and Zhili Xiao in physics as its 2013 Board of Trustees Professors – a top university honor that recognizes faculty members for international renown in their research and excellence in all facets of teaching. Gebo’s paleontological research is elucidating the origins of primates....
Michelle Case
NIU students are learning the inner workings of biomedical engineering, a cutting-edge industry that applies engineering principles to medicine. Biomedical engineers have played a huge part in stem cell research, tissue engineering and several other monumental discoveries in the field. Students can experience the hands-on work of a biomedical engineer in the College of Engineering...
NIU Institute of Industrial Engineers logo
In early March, Northern Illinois University’s Institute of Industrial Engineering chapter attended the regional conference in Iowa City, Iowa. Chapter members submitted and presented two papers in the technical paper competition: one by Donato Miroballi, the chapter president, and one by senior industrial and systems engineering (ISYE) majors Adrienne Decker and Anthony Zozzaro. The paper...
