Juan Jiménez

Juan Jiménez

Assistant Professor Juan Jiménez of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department already has several notable accomplishments to his record since coming to UMass Amherst in the fall of 2015. Earlier this year, the graduate of Michigan State (B.S.) and Princeton (M.S. and Ph.D.) Universities received a 2016 Innovation and Career Development Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society, presented to early career faculty for their accomplishments, significant contributions, and service to the biomedical engineering field.

WEC Faculty and Alumni Set Sail for First U.S. Offshore Wind Farm to Celebrate Program’s Momentous History

Wind Turbines off Block Island Shore in Massachusetts

On the weekend of October 30, an intrepid group of offshore-wind-energy experts took a blustery pilgrimage by sailboat to view the first offshore wind farm ever established in the United States. The five wind turbines, just south of Block Island, make up the 30-megawatt Block Island Wind Farm, built by Deepwater Wind of Providence. The trip – taken by several faculty and alumni of what is now called the University of Massachusetts Wind Energy Center (WEC) and their colleagues from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory – proved to be a stormy experience that embodied the very power of the term “offshore wind energy.”

Once Again Engineers Stand out on List of Rising Researchers

Rising Researchers

Fall 2016 Rising Researchers

In a continuing pattern of outstanding undergraduate research, two of the six students chosen as Rising Researchers at UMass for the fall of 2016 are engineers. The Rising Researcher program celebrates undergraduate students who excel in research, scholarship, or creative activity. This semester’s outstanding engineering undergrads named on the biannual list are mechanical engineering major Victor Champagne and physics and chemical engineering major Robert Johnston. Having multiple engineering representatives among the Rising Researchers has become something of a tradition over the past few years.
