Blugold materials science graduate Kao Yang tells the story of how changing his major truly changed his life.
Elizabeth Stubbs has been recognized nationally as a scientist and as a gymnast. In 2015, she won a Goldwater Scholarship, given to only the top science, math and engineering students in the country. She’s also a three-time All-American and two-time MVP gymnast.
Senior materials science major uses his knowledge of scientific applications to connect the Materials Science and Engineering Center with area industries looking to create or expand production.
For any Blugold who has the chance to participate in undergraduate research, it’s a life-changing experience. For materials science graduate Kyle Lobermeier, the experience made all the difference in his decision to continue his education.
Veteran student and Blugold alum Erik Engness found acceptance, friendship and inspiration in the material sciences department at UW-Eau Claire. By conducting undergraduate research, taking leadership positions in a campus organization and even becoming a co-founder of a nonprofit event, Erik truly found nontraditional levels of success.
Dr. Marc McEllistrem makes the case for the materials science and engineering program at UW-Eau Claire as the best four-year option in the area.
For materials science major Sam Schultz, balancing his desires to both advance his education and serve his country has brought him to the ROTC program at UW-Eau Claire, where his leadership skills and physics knowledge are carving a solid future for him in engineering.
Dr.s Marc McEllistrem and Doug Dunham provide the latest findings in their ongoing research into semiconductors.
Dr.s Doug Dunham and Marc McEllistrem provide updates to the research into nanomaterials.
This research looks at fracture mechanics of metallic elements, their intermetallic compounds and mixtures called alloys. Superconductors are materials that allow electric current to flow through them with no resistance. Research at UWEC investigates the physical properties of superconductors and the interfaces with other materials.
In the ongoing research into computational materials, Dr. Ma keeps us updated in the most recent discoveries in this area.
As part of an ongoing effort at UWEC to increase cross-disciplinary engagement, faculty and students from English, Theatre and several science programs have developed an evening of dramatic readings and informative presentations that showcase humankind's creative journey of discovery — whether on a canvas, or a stage, in a laboratory or in the field. This year we will be presenting a reader’s theatre of excerpts from four different science plays, along with transitional contextual (“bridge”) explanations, all performed by students.
Dr. Liz Glogowski keeps us updated on her ongoing research in polymers and colloids. Research at UWEC includes synthesizing and characterizing new types of polymers and colloids.
To help students compete in the ever-growing science and technology industry, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire announces a new degree program in materials science and engineering beginning in the fall 2016.
UWEC thinks things like undergraduate research is so important, they are now offering a new scholarship to help more Blugolds have these experiences.
Chancellor James Schmidt testifies before the Joint Committee on Finance about the proposed 2015-17 state budget and shares the UW-Eau Claire story, including 2015 Rhodes Scholar Tayo Sanders II.
Tayo Sanders’ journey from unsure freshman to Rhodes Scholar.
Dr. Jennifer Dahl receives a 2015 UW System Regent Scholar award in recognition of her innovative faculty-student research.
