Amin, Ruhul

Professor
Mechanical & Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Currently I teach graduate and undergraduate courses on heat transfer and thermodynamics. My research interests are in the area of numerical and experimental heat transfer and fluid mechanics. Areas of research involve phase change materials, porous media, renewable energy etc.

June, Ronald

Assistant Professor
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Research in my lab seeks to understand how cells respond to mechanical loading. Understanding cellular mechanotransduction is important for many reasons including (1) learning how waterway biofilms respond to changes in waterflows as may happen due to climate change, and (2) understanding how mammalian cells respond to the loading due to normal usage.

I teach courses on Mechanics of Materials and Measurement and Instrumentation, and my laboratory has an emphasis in training undergraduate students in interdisciplinary science and engineering.

Larson, Robb

Associate Professor
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Director of the Montana Wind Applications Center (WAC), one of 11 WAC's located at universities throughout the U.S. with primary funding through the U.S. DOE National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL.) The WAC mission statement includes education, outreach and support for wind energy topics in Montana and nationally. I created and serve as Instructor for the ETME470 Alternative Energy Applications course which includes coverage of a range of renewable energy topics for upper-division students in various Engineering disciplines.

Mian, Ahsan

Associate Professor
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Currently I am involved with teaching several undergraduate and graduate courses and pursuing research in the areas of microsystem technologies. My research involves the design of application specific micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). Some of the applications are: MEMS devices to measure microbial response; waste energy recovery using MEMS devices; MEMS-based measurements of rheological properties of biofilm, etc.

Ward, Nicholas

Professor
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering
Montana State University - Bozeman

Dr. Nicholas Ward (F. Erg. S) obtained his Ph.D. in Human Factors psychology from Queen's University (Canada). Dr. Ward moved to the USA to become the Director of the ITS Institute human factors research laboratory at the University of Minnesota (www.humanfirst.umn.edu). Dr. Ward is currently a Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Montana State University and a Senior Research Scientist at the Western Transportation Institute (www.coe.montana.edu/wti/).
