Running on foam

The Mizzou Engineering chemical car team’s real test will come not when its vehicle starts—but when it stops. Eight Mizzou students are competing for the first time later this month in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ (AIChE) annual Chem–E–Car Competition. Competing teams must design and build a model car—roughly the size of a shoebox—powered […]

E-Week in brief

Growing green E–Week pranksters took advantage of unseasonably warm temperatures to sow a crop of shamrock cookies outside the College of Engineering’s administrative headquarters. The doughy crop sprouted in the trees fronting Lafferre Hall at the week’s beginning, withstanding both stiff winds and curious onlookers. Students recognized E–Week’s playful traditions in other areas of the […]

E-Week in brief: page two

Some familiar tools helped introduce about 1,000 mid–Missouri youths to advanced technology research during Mizzou Engineering’s annual Open House and Laboratory Exhibit program. About 1,000 students toured this year’s engineering exhibits, designed to introduce youths to engineering and its effect on their everyday lives. The college’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department won first place for […]

Ice sheets becoming a hot topic

Rising sea levels are probably the most serious effect of global warming, and have already displaced portions of the world’s population, an MU College of Engineering professor warned Wednesday. “These effects are not in the future; these effects are happening now,” said Curt Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor whose research focuses on ice […]

Engineering tradition swings into full gear

Pranksters launched the MU College of Engineering’s annual celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this week with some good-natured ribbing of their traditional law school rivals. More than a century ago, engineering students seeking a break from their stringent school schedules declared St. Patrick their patron saint and his namesake day a holiday. The celebration since […]

CoE geotechnical team builds on its success in national competition

Overcoming a last–minute change in design requirements, the CoE geotechnical engineering team recently won a national competition for the second time in three years. “We felt it was a great accomplishment to win again,” said graduate student Daniel Huaco, a member of both winning teams. “I just wanted to make our program look good.” Mizzou […]
