Johannes Van der Watt, research assistant professor at UND’s Institute of Energy Studies, has been awarded more than $1.25 million in funding to study the feasibility of using industrial residues to capture carbon dioxide in a solid form—and then using that solid in a beneficial way.
Waste not, want not — the high-tech way
North Dakota has become synonymous with developing and testing uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS), and now this technology is being put to use on the University of North Dakota campus to help reduce energy costs and assist with infrastructure repairs and improvements.
Next up: Next-gen components for nuclear reactors
Sougata Roy, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, received nearly $250,000 to study how additive manufacturing (AM) processes can be used to make the nuclear reactor components. Additive manufacturing is a process not dissimilar to how a 3D printer makes plastic objects.
Grad students deliver quickfire research summaries at 3MT competition
A graduate student’s final project represents years of hard work, backed by a full understanding of their academic discipline. For many, that final project is the crowning achievement of their early academic careers.
Julia Dewhurst loves math, puzzles and people. Depending on when you see her, at least one of those passions will be notably present.

Shedding light on diversification of North American gastropods over deep time
In a recent scientific article co-authored by Joseph Hartman, a professor of geology and geological engineering at UND, new research infers diversification rates of North American freshwater gastropods from the Late Triassic to the Pleistocene.
One more giant leap
“We’re very excited about this collaborative project between the College of Engineering & Mines and the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences,” said Brian Tande, dean of the College of Engineering and Mines. “This project will build upon a long history of space-related research at UND and further grow our capabilities to develop new technologies for space applications. It will also capitalize on the generous investment the North Dakota Legislature has recently provided for space research at UND and will certainly lead to even more opportunities.”
A pledge of a lifetime
Bi-annual ceremony celebrates graduating CEM students’ pledge to integrity and respect On Friday, the College of Engineering & Mines at the University of North Dakota held its Order of the Engineer Ceremony for students graduating in December. The Order of the Engineer is a national organization that promotes engineers’ ethical and professional practices. The ceremony […]
