UW-Green Bay student Paul VanderKelen (Mechanical Engineering) has been named a 2019 scholarship recipient by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA). VanderKelen is a six-year employee of HART Design and Manufacturing Inc. in Green Bay, and will be working there after graduation in May 2020. Read more.
UW-Green Bay Engineering Club students toured KI in Green Bay on Friday, March 8, 2019. KI is one of the top 10 furniture manufacturing companies in the world (and much of the furniture used on the campus is from KI). The tour provided a great opportunity for the students to see first-hand how a big manufacturing plant operates, learn more about the fabrication processes, and network with employees. The Engineering Club members were accompanied by their faculty adviser, Assistant Prof. Jagadeep Thota (Natural and Applied Sciences, Mechanical Engineering). KI is a generous supporter and invaluable partner of UW-Green Bay.
UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Md. Riaz Uddin Ahmed (Natural and Applied Sciences) has been selected as a round two winner for the Smart Cities-Smart Futures Competition sponsored by Foxconn. Ahmed will now move on to the third and final round of the competition. Evaluation of round three will occur in the month of April, with winners being announced in early May. Learn more.
UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Maruf Hossain (Electrical Engineering Technology) has co-authored a paper entitled “Three-Phase PLL for Grid-Connected Power Converters under Both Amplitude and Phase Unbalanced Conditions,” which has been accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, one of the high impact factor journals published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The article is co-authored with an international team of researchers from UW-Green Bay (USA), Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Bangladesh), Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Copenhagen (Denmark) and Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). All the authors are thankful to Dean John Katers (College of Science, Engineering and Technology) for his support to set up the experimental lab, which was used to conduct the experiments for this paper.
Assistant Prof. Mohammad Upal Mahfuz (Natural and Applied Science, Electrical Engineering Technology) has recently published an article (a chapter) entitled, “Brownian Motion” in the book Encyclopedia of Wireless Networks, Editors: Shen, Xuemin (Sherman), Lin, Xiaodong, Zhang, Kuan, published by Springer Nature Switzerland, 2019, pp. 1-5, DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-32903-1_231-1, ISBN 978-3-319-78263-8. The article discusses on diffusion-based molecular communication approach among nanomachines that use information-carrying molecules. Learn more about the book.
Assistant Prof. Maruf Hossain (Electrical Engineering Technology) has co-authored a paper entitled “Open-Loop Approach for Robust Detection of Selective Harmonic in Single-Phase System,” which has been accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics. This is a collaborative work with other two professors from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. All the authors are grateful to Dean John Katers (College of Science, Engineering and Technology) for his support to set up the experimental lab, which was used to conduct the experiments for this paper.

Work on the STEM Innovation Center on the Green Bay campus is continuing to make progress. Crews are continuing to work on the concrete footings and walls in preparation for masonry, steel and precast wall panel delivery. Digging for footings and backfilling is ongoing, and site utilities are nearing completion. The steam and chilled water piping in the tunnels will also be taking place soon.
