UW-Madison is recognizing 2012-13 as the Year of Innovation, offering a chance to reflect on what this concept means to the university and to society. With $136 million in research and more than 100 patent disclosures annually, the College of Engineering has worked to cultivate innovation as a standard operating procedure in our classrooms and labs. The best way to appreciate innovation—what it means, where it comes from and why it matters—is to hear it described directly by our faculty, students and alumni. We chose nine engineers—who happen to be inventors and entrepreneurs—to tell their stories.
