Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Jeff Hill

October 18, 2021 03:28 PM
Dr. Jeff Hill was half a mile away when he helped set off a half a pound of high explosive for a work experiment that bent the grass waves as the shock rolled toward him. This kind of high impact in both engineering and people is Dr. Hill’s focus as the newest faculty member in the Brigham Young University Mechanical Engineering Department.

Faculty Spotlight: Meet Dr. Matt Allen

When rockets take off or airplanes fly, all of their internal parts move, shake and bend because of various forces. How do you design those parts so they don’t break? Dr. Matt Allen’s structural dynamics research group is working on solutions to these types of problems.

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Daniel Maynes

June 16, 2021 02:44 PM
Dr. Daniel Maynes decided to major in Mechanical Engineering through what he called “a process of elimination,” because he liked Chemistry, Math, Physics and did not like subjects like history. Maynes had narrowed down his focus to Engineering, Physics or Math before he left for his mission.

Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Brian Jensen

April 26, 2021 09:24 AM
When Dr. Brian Jensen was in first grade, his favorite subjects were math and science, so his mom told him he should become an engineer. That early introduction led to the Brigham Young University professors major focus in the field of microsystems.
