The Michigan Technological University, (MTU) was established in 1885 in Houghton, Michigan. MTU is noted for academic excellence in the School of Engineering and Natural and Physical Science. The School of Technology includes computer science and is rated highly by comparable universities.
Three new minerals discovered by a Michigan Tech alumnus are secondary crusts found in old uranium mines. They're bright, yellow and hard to find.
A little sodium goes a long way. At least that's the case in carbon-based energy technology. Specifically, embedding sodium in carbon materials can tremendously improve electrodes—which could streamline solar cell and supercapacitor ...
A new study shows a huge US market for plug and play solar energy, with billions of dollars in retail sales and energy savings. So what's holding up widespread use?
When it comes to climate change, clouds are the wild card. Atmospheric physicists at Michigan Tech use a turbulence-generating cloud chamber to better understand the details and droplets.
Water and atmospheric processes are inseparable. Now, there is a supercomputer model that couples climate and hydrodynamic factors for the Great Lakes region.
A new patent search tool developed by engineers at Michigan Technological University makes it easier to discover and track inactive patents.
A team led by a physicist from Michigan Technological University has discovered a new mineral, named for the region in Tanzania where it comes from.
Double-stranded breaks in DNA can be detected with several technologies. Doing so in plants is exceptionally difficult, but GUIDE-Seq shows promise in new studies.
Almost as elusive as unicorns, finding practical materials for invisibility cloaking is challenging. Michigan Technological University researchers have new ideas how to solve that.
Michigan Technological University scientists have developed a process that could lead to stickier—and better—gene therapy drugs.
