  3. In her “wild garden,” Lynn Conway is an architect, but only inasmuch she shapes the landscape to both enjoy and encourage a healthy natural environment. Conway has been this kind of architect for much of her life. From her contributions to the evolution of computing, to her gender transition, to her advocacy work with LGBT awareness and understanding, Conway has and continues to encourage positive growth by questioning the status quo and finding new ways forward.

    This video was produced as a companion to a written story, “Life, Engineered: How Lynn Conway reinvented her world and ours.” Both are part of a digital multimedia experience to be explored here: http://dme.engin.umich.edu/lynnconway

    Lynn Conway is a professor emerita in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the University of Michigan College of Engineering.

  4. Some Michigan entrepreneurs are leaving for Silicon Valley. Others are staying, or returning, or coming for the first time. Why are there differences in perspective about which place is better for startups? 

    Much like their predecessors in the Valley, Michigan entrepreneurs face a unique set of challenges based in the culture and resources at hand. What will it take for Michigan’s burgeoning startup culture to approach the vibrancy of the Valley’s startup culture?

    Michigan Radio will be hosting a town hall event for entrepreneurs and experts to discuss the future of entrepreneurship in Michigan on October 31 at 9:30 in Ann Arbor, MI. Find out more & RSVP for the event here: http://umicheng.in/michiganmojo

  12. One of the things that binds us all together is the love of aeronautics and space exploration. It is as true today as it was 100 years ago. The University of Michigan started the first collegiate aeronautics program in the United States in 1914. Since then, the department has graduated more than 6,000 aeronautical and aerospace engineers. Our graduate program ranks No. 1 among public institutions and our undergraduate program ranks No. 2 in the nation by U.S. News for 2014.
