Less than two years after its launch, the Engineering Our Future fundraising campaign to support Northern Illinois University engineering programs on the campus of Rock Valley College (RVC) closed in festive fashion on Thursday, Nov. 9, having exceeded its goal by $1.5 million for a total of $7.5 million. Academic, business and community leaders gathered...
  NIU College of Engineering and Engineering Technology Dean Donald Peterson, Ph.D., will chair a new ASTM International committee to develop industry standards in the growing field of exoskeletons and exosuits. The committee was formed in September in a meeting attended by dozens of representatives of industry, trade associations and government agencies from around the...
Researchers at NIU are investigating ways to boost the power of compact electron accelerators, with potential applications for homeland security and pollution cleanup. In a new research project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, faculty in the departments of physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and under the Northern Illinois Center for Accelerator and Detector...
Thousands of area kids who attended NIU’s STEMfest event last weekend took at least two things home with them: the idea that science can be fun and the realization that all types of people can be scientists. Nearly 7,000 children and families packed NIU’s Convocation Center, where 800 diverse NIU students and faculty amazed and...
When faculty and staff in NIU’s Industrial Management and Technology program look for hands-on experiences and mentors in the field, they don’t have to look far. The program – which offers a concentration in environmental safety and health – has built a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with departments across campus whose workers regularly encounter the issues...
NIU’s annual STEMFest will once again welcome budding scientists and curious visitors of all ages. On Saturday, Oct. 21, the Midwest’s premier festival for celebrating science, technology, engineering and math will return to the NIU Convocation Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many of the crowd’s favorite exhibits from previous years will be returning,...
NIU senior Jasmine Carey has had her eyes opened to a range of career possibilities in STEM education through her work with the STEM Outreach team at NIU’s Center for P-20 Engagement. As an instructor at the center’s STEM Outreach camps and classes, Carey has connected with students from elementary through high school to share...
Mitutoyo, a manufacturer of precision measuring instruments, showed its continued support of NIU’s engineering technology programs with a recent visit to campus on Monday, Sept. 11. Over the past 12 years, Mitutoyo has been an ardent supporter of the Department of Technology, providing the department with nearly $1 million in advanced measurement tools, plus support...
Milivoje M. Kostic, professor emeritus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, was recently invited to be a panel participant on the development of entransy theory at the 16th International Heat Transfer Conference (IHTC-16). The event, also known as Heat Transfer Olympics,  will be held at the Chinese National Convention Center, Olympic Game Park, Beijing, China, from Aug. 10-15, 2018, with...
Picus Martius didn’t start as a club. The NIU Mars Rover team began in 2016 as a senior design project. Five students worked together to develop the first Picus Martius, a project that landed them first place in the mechanical engineering division and the Engineering and Technology Alumni Society’s (ETAS) Engineering Excellence Award on the College...
Last spring, Eric Morgensen wasn’t sure whether he should apply for a summer fellowship at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) offered through Caltech. Morgensen, a Pecatonica, IL, native who is set to graduate in December with a degree in mechanical engineering, decided to go for it. He was selected, and spent 10 weeks in Pasadena,...
A team of NIU engineering students intent on building their own solar-powered car got a little practice over the summer, helping teenage girls build cars out of old refrigerators for the ComEd Icebox Derby Challenge in Chicago. In the Icebox Derby, now in its fourth year, 30 girls on six teams turn recycled refrigerators into...
