Congratulations to Professor Dan MacDonald of Civil and Environmental Engineering who along with several former students received U.S. Patent No. 9,581,128, "Systems and Methods for Wave Energy Conversion" on February 28, 2017, our second issued patent for this fiscal year.
We continue to make progress in moving UMassD inventions to the market.
