Baker Talks About Offshore Wind Energy Program on NEPR

In December, Erin Baker of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department appeared on New England Public Radio (NEPR) to discuss her Offshore Wind Energy Program, an interdisciplinary graduate program in offshore wind energy engineering, environmental science, and policy that is now up and running with 25 faculty members from nine departments working with 13 full-time graduate students.

Goldstein’s Team Covered on Scientific Websites

Physorg.com and other scientific websites have posted articles on Joseph Goldstein of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department and his research team, which is trying to produce an iron-nickel alloy that is currently only found in meteorites for use in making supermagnets. The goal of the research is to develop bulk quantities of commercially viable, environmentally sound supermagnets, which can be used in electric vehicles, wind-turbine generators, and many other machines.
