You can find engineering in everything — the food you eat, the roads you drive on, the water you drink, the electronic devices you use, the medicine and medical devices that keep you healthy and so much more. Engineers innovate and impact the world in the way few other professions can. At the University of Missouri College of Engineering, world-class faculty conduct cutting-edge research and train not just future engineers, but engineers ready to shape their world for the better the day they graduate. Are you ready to get in?
Pillars of Pursuit
As a world-class, globally renowned engineering leader, we will build upon our strengths in education, research and service. We will inspire and invest in our faculty and students and increase our impact upon the world through the four pillars of pursuit.
As part of Engineers Without Borders, the MU chapter traveled to Majé de Chimán, Panama, as part of their continued efforts to provide a reliable water distribution, filtration and storage system for the community there.
The goal of the event is to showcase the field of engineering and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers to girls in grades six through nine and their parents. Women are typically underrepresented in engineering careers, and events such as Daughter Engineering Day seek to help grow the number of women in the field by developing an early interest.
The highlight of the week for the Mizzou contingent was finishing second in the Student Cyber Challenge, coming in just slightly behind the University of Alabama team. The team earned high marks for their project, “Compartmentalized and Extensible Security Framework for Securing Pre-Existing Systems.”
Hosted by MU’s Neural Engineering Laboratory, the 13th annual Robotics Design Challenge welcomed 325 participating K-8th graders to test the robots they had spent months creating.
Mizzou NSBE was named Region V Medium Sized Chapter of the Year for chapters with less than 75 members. The chapter also won the National T.O.R.C.H. (Technical Outreach and Community Help) Chapter of the Year for their work in the Columbia community and had two members elected to regional leadership.
Marge Skubic’s extensive and groundbreaking work in the field of eldercare and rehabilitation technology has earned several honors over the years. The latest comes from the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.
