Mizzou Engineering digging further into earthquakes

Mizzou Engineering researchers have begun digging more deeply into what triggers earthquakes, thanks to a powerful new device that simulates the enormous forces bearing down on rocks about a kilometer below the ocean floor. Engineering’s geotechnical group in mid-April installed a $16,800 high-pressure soil compression test device, jointly financed by a $4,000 donation from Kansas […]

Grounded in energy alternatives

Renewable and sustainable energy resources are on the minds of U. S. citizens from grade school children to grandparents, and are at the forefront of consideration and action among politicians, scientists, engineers and investors. A national goal to produce 10 percent of this country’s electricity using renewable resources by 2012 increases to 25 percent in […]

TigerPlace: where care and aging with dignity go hand-in-hand with technology

Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” It’s a catchphrase that has been the stuff of jokes and parodies since a 1980s stiffly dramatized commercial for a medical alarm company, but fall risk assessment and prevention for the elderly is serious business. Researchers at the University of Missouri have been collaborating for the past […]

Perfecting laser defenses

From “Star Wars” to “Star Trek,” the laser has captured the popular imagination like few other high-tech devices. Short for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation,” the laser has a storied history dating back to 1917 and Albert Einstein, who first suggested the concept of stimulated emission.  Simply stated, radiation can stimulate electrons in […]

Mizzou steel bridge team builds for the future

Mizzou Engineering’s steel bridge team finished 36th in this year’s national competition, laying a foundation for next year upon which team members already are starting to build. “We’re ready for next year,” team President Matthew Brucks said. “We’ve seen a lot and learned a lot.” MU’s team won third place in the American Society of […]

New nanotechnology center opens

Advanced technology research in Missouri will get a boost April 7 with the opening of the MU College of Engineering’s new nanotechnology center. The CoE Center for Micro/Nano Systems and Nanotechnology will research and develop highly miniaturized technology—so–called “nanotechnology”—that can be used for both military and private purposes. While the CoE already conducts such research, […]

Class Feature: Mid-90’s Grads

Five classmates who graduated in the mid-1990s agreed to share their experiences as engineering students at MU for this class feature. They are: Mike Brekken BS CEE ’96; Carson Coffman BS CEE ’95; Paula (Day) Gough BS CEE ’95; Kristi Jo (McTeer) Gribble BS MAE, ‘94; and Rick Vogt BS ChE ’95. In 1995, the […]

MU receives high marks in international protein structure prediction competition

The University of Missouri has raised its stature in the international protein modeling community with its remarkable success in the Eighth Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP8), sponsored by the National Institute of Health. Results were released at the CASP8 conference held in Cagliari, on the island of Sardinia, Italy, in early […]

Center for Sustainable Energy launched

University of Missouri’s College of Engineering and College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources are seeking campuswide participation in a new center focused on developing renewable energy resources. The MU colleges jointly launched the Center for Sustainable Energy last spring in hopes of establishing Missouri as a leader in the nation’s search for energy sustainability. […]
