University Marketing and Communications

2018 Michigan Tech Magazine

Six months, 41 researchers, two pipelines, 4,380 simulations, roughly 2 million gallons of oil, and more than 600 pages of science. In an independent risk analysis of the Straits Pipelines, Michigan Tech led a team of experts to answer one question: what's the worst that could happen? Read issue two of the 2018 Michigan Tech Magazine online.

Acoustic Engineers use Carbon Nanotubes

Our students and faculty know what tomorrow needs. Acoustics engineering focuses on making spaces sound the best they can by analyzing complex sound waves, testing new materials, and building sound-cancelling devices. That matters because in places like hospitals, noisy heating and cooling units affect people’s ability to recover from illness and prevent airborne infection.
