In 1847, a course offering studies in mechanical philosophies and mechanics appeared at what was then East Tennessee University. Now, almost 170 years later, the school is UT, and the course has grown into the College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, two-thirds of which would have been considered science fiction to those many years ago.

Circuits on Demand: Engineer Prints Electrical Components on Paper

Anming Hu

One of humankind’s biggest technological steps was the ability to print words on paper. Now, thanks to UT College of Engineering assistant professor Anming Hu, it’s technology itself that is being printed. Hu, of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, has researched a way to print circuits on paper, the main impact of which could be a decrease in cost and an increase in portability for any number of devices.
