Two MSI Principal Investigators in the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) have been named Titans of Technology by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Professor Art Erdman (Director, University of Minnesota Medical Devices Center; Mechanical Engineering) and Professor Jian-Ping Wang (Director, Center for Spintronic Materials, Interfaces, and Novel Architectures; Electrical and Computer Engineering) will be honored at a luncheon in September. The awards recognize outstanding tech professionals and those who support technology.

Professor Erdman uses MSI for computer modeling and simulations that help solve problems in developing medical devices. MSI will be participating with the Medical Devices Center at the 2014 Minnesota State Fair on August 28, 12-6pm. Professor Wang has used MSI over the years for a number of projects related to electronic structures, most recently into the structure of Fe16N2. He has been featured this summer in articles about his most recent startup company and about the Twin Cities economy.
