Aspiring engineers explore Mizzou

Mizzou Engineering summer campers viewed laser research through a new perspective recently as they kicked off a week of hands-on engineering lessons. The students listened to light as they experimented with a laser that generates sound waves, and looked at the colors of wavelength numbers. These and other experiments were designed to introduce young engineers […]

Michael Maloney always knew that biology would play a role in his career, but when it came time to go to college, he worried that a straight degree in biology wouldn’t translate into the practical applications he wanted from his educational investment. “I heard from my mentor about a new program at the University of […]

Student Achievement

James Bryce, a senior in civil engineering, is one of 12 students nationwide to be selected for the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program this summer. The program introduces students to the impact they might have on public policy as professional engineers. Bryce wrote to faculty mentor Professor John Bowders from Washington saying, […]

Class of 1970

In 1970, Richard M. Nixon was President, Erich Segal’s “Love Story” was the top-selling fiction book, and Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix died drug-related deaths. In May of that year, U.S. troops invaded Cambodia and a resulting student protest at Kent State University in Ohio ended with the tragic deaths of four students at the […]
