College of Engineering students build skills through community service

A Columbia service project recently brought home to several Mizzou Engineering students what it means to be in society’s “problem–solving” field. Ten engineering student ambassadors built a wooden porch this spring for the Imani Mission Center, a not–for–profit organization at 7 E. Ash St. that provides training and activities for low–income families. The engineering group’s […]

Student aeronautics team takes off

The College of Engineering’s newest design team is entering competition this month with a preliminary victory already under its belt. Mizzou revived a dormant chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) last fall, revitalizing a group that had been inactive for about 10 years. The group’s members entered a design proposal in […]

New CoE associate dean for research takes the helm

Sam Kiger, a former CoE civil and environmental engineering department chair and an internationally recognized expert in blast resistant structural design, is the college’s new associate dean for research. The position has been open since former Associate Dean for Research Noah Manring stepped into an administrative position at Princeton University about a month ago. CoE […]

Timber bridge team wins “most practical design”

Wooden bridges have largely gone the way of horse drawn carriages, both replaced with innovations arising from the industrial revolution, though arguably a better case can be made for a car in every garage than for a span of cold steel over every stream. Just ask the folks at Southwest Mississippi Resource Conservation and Development, […]

College of Engineering researchers aim to deter bridge terrorism

Government officials have long acknowledged America’s vulnerability to terrorist attacks on the national transportation system. Backed by federal funding, Mizzou Engineering researchers are coming up with ways to protect against such attacks. Sam Kiger, an MU civil and environmental engineering professor who has focused throughout his career on designing structures to withstand explosions, is leading […]
