Mizzou software mapping paths to the planets

A NASA probe’s flight to Mars may well seem a daunting undertaking to those who remember America’s initial efforts to send men to the moon. Yet from Mizzou Engineering Professor Craig Kluever’s perspective, the current Mars mission is relatively straightforward. It’s NASA’s Messenger spacecraft, on its way now to Mercury using planetary gravity to guide […]

Turning a profit on pollution prevention

Global business strategy will join forces with environmentalism in a Mizzou Engineering internship program slated to launch next spring. The new pollution prevention intern program will train students to provide on-site environmental assessments for Missouri businesses and industries. Interns will spend 10 weeks analyzing a client business to develop recommendations for increasing efficiency and cutting […]

Mizzou Engineering professor earns career recognition

Mizzou Engineering Professor Curt Davis is being honored by an international technology organization for his contributions to satellite remote sensing research. Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor and director of the MU Center for Geospatial Intelligence, has been named a “fellow” by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Davis’ new IEEE rank—the […]

Engineering students help residents stay warm

Engineering students help residents stay warm

Some Mizzou Engineering students are sharing the warmth of the season in an unusually practical way. About 30 Engineering Ambassadors and Mizzou Engineering Student Council members visited several low-income Columbia residents on Dec. 1 to help weatherize their homes. Using weather-stripping and other insulating tools, the students worked to reduce utility costs by improving energy […]

Mizzou taking measures for dam safety

Mizzou taking measures for dam safety

As engineers all across America struggle to maintain the nation’s aging infrastructure, a University of Missouri researcher is developing a way to prevent one type of disastrous dam failure. Vellore Gopalaratnam, an MU civil and environmental engineering professor, is developing a sensor system that will remotely measure how much strain is being placed on a […]

Expanding Mizzou Engineering’s international education program

The College of Engineering is organizing a new student exchange program that will offer young engineers the opportunity to obtain a truly international education. College leaders have agreed to launch an exchange program next fall with Sunchon National University (SNU) in South Korea. SNU, which focuses on engineering education, features international exchange programs with universities […]

Energy symposium spotlights renewable alternatives

Energy experts agreed during a recent symposium cosponsored by the College of Engineering that America’s future fuel needs must be met with a mix of renewable and traditional resources. “Thermochemical conversion can produce energy, fuels and chemicals from the full spectrum of biomass resources.”—Bill Jacoby However, a CoE member of the symposium believes that the […]

MU students sort through information overload

Three MU computer science students are receiving national recognition for successfully tackling a segment of today’s information overload dilemma. Engineering graduate students Wannapa Mahamaneerat, Jason Green and Tetsuya Kobayashi have earned kudos from the American Medical Information Association (AMIA) competition for a computer program they developed that categorizes huge amounts of data so that useful […]

Mizzou Engineering launches nanotechnology enterprise

Mizzou Engineering and university leaders have agreed to launch a nanotechnology consortium that would collaborate with area businesses to commercialize the college’s research. College of Engineering Dean Jim Thompson led a daylong workshop last month to create a public-private sector partnership that would build a new center for nanotechnology entrepreneurship. More than 200 business and […]

Mizzou Engineering to help Peru recover from earthquake

A Mizzou Engineering geotechnical team will travel to Peru in October to help the earthquake-shattered nation rebuild its most devastated cities. Thousands of earthquake survivors have been living in makeshift shelters since a magnitude 8.0 quake struck central Peru’s coast on Aug. 15, killing more than 500 people and reducing houses in the cities of […]
