Stories from mechanical engineering:
BYU engineering students have teamed with non-profit Engage Now Africa to create a socket for above-knee amputees that fits neatly into prosthetics made available by the international Red Cross.
Mechanical engineering students at BYU have created a special adapter to a bike pedal that allows people with leg-length discrepancies and knee flexibility issues ride smoothly and painlessly.
BYU engineering professors have created an origami-inspired, lightweight bulletproof shield that can protect law enforcement from gunfire.
A group of BYU engineering students hope to trigger energy change by installing solar cells in public locations you wouldn't think of.
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.
BYU mechanical engineers have made a name for themselves by applying the principles of origami to engineering. Now they're applying their origami skills to a new realm: the human body.
Julie Crockett and Dan Maynes have spent decades studying super-hydrophobic surfaces. Some of this research has resulted in commercial products, but the professors are finding characteristics aimed at large-scale solutions for society.
