It’s not unusual for working engineers to enroll in master’s programs to update or broaden their knowledge. But a master’s program in the Rutgers’ School of Engineering seems to be drawing more than the usual number of students who are sponsored by their employers. This past year, 11 people from the Canadian Forces, Greece’s Hellenic Air Force, and Schlumberger, a worldwide oilfield services firm headquartered in Paris, chose to pursue graduate work in Rutgers’ Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE).

Qingze Zou is one of those behind-the-scenes types, though in a way that just might save lives someday. In 2009, while teaching at Iowa State University, the mechanical engineer received a National Science Foundation award of $400,000 over five years to develop a microscope that will observe cells in extreme detail. “It will help people understand cell behaviors better,” Zou says, “and help develop, for example, better medical materials for cancer patients.

The next time you’re riding in a plane, train or automobile, the next time you’re popping in a piece of toast, microwaving a pizza or brewing coffee, the next time you fire up a laptop, gas grill or lawnmower, thank a mechanical engineer. We rely on the problem-solving skills mechanical engineers in almost every facet of our modern daily lives.
