Stories from Engineering and Technology:

BYU engineering professors have created an origami-inspired, lightweight bulletproof shield that can protect law enforcement from gunfire.

Prostate cancer is much easier to cure in its early stages, but can remain undiagnosed because early stages of the disease may not produce symptoms until the tumor is either very large or has invaded other tissues.

A Brigham Young University MRI expert worked with a UK-based team on the world’s largest health-imaging study, a massive undertaking to scan the brain of more than 100,000 people to find connections with developing diseases.

A group of BYU engineering students hope to trigger energy change by installing solar cells in public locations you wouldn't think of.

BYU professor Michael Scott is one of 54 American professors recently named as a “Highly Cited Researcher” by Thomson Reuters.

BYU professor Kevin Franke was one of four U.S. professors invited to a special geotechnical engineering reconnaissance mission to learn how the earthquake impacted ancient and modern infrastructure.

Grant Schultz

Newly published research from BYU civil engineers finds that up to 25 percent of vehicles in Utah’s high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes during rush hour are violating carpool requirements.

Water Droplets

Syntrichia caninervis (aka seriously awesome desert moss) uses tiny hair-like structures on its leaves to absorb water from the atmosphere until droplets form and flow to the leaf. And sometimes it does it upside-down.

Foosball

Computer engineering students at BYU spent this past semester creating a robotic, vision-controlled foosball table with the objective to beat a human foosball player. The project was a great success. Only problem? The A.I. is a too good.

Todd and McKay Mitton

A group of mechanical engineering students in the Capstone Program have built an adult-sized, two-in-one bike trailer/jogging stroller for McKay Mitton, an 18 year old with cerebral palsy.
