MU Seismic Design Team rocks

Mizzou Engineering’s Seismic Design Team took second place in the seventh annual Seismic Design Competition sponsored by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), no small feat for a team that was competing in the national competition for only the second time. Five team members attended the event, held in San Francisco February 3-6, competing against […]

Office for Student Enrichment launched

Recent construction that transformed the reception area of the College of Engineering’s administrative offices, the Heritage Room and the vacated copy center into a suite to house the Office of Student Enrichment occurred in a flurry of activity over a few weeks’ time. But the schemes, dreams and plans that laid a foundation and launched […]

Sequencing of soybean genome adds potential to research

Nearly 5,000 years after the first written reference to soy appeared on a list of Chinese plants, the legume’s genome has been sequenced. Researchers at the University of Missouri were part of the large multi-disciplinary team of scientists from academia and business that successfully untangled soybean’s genetic code, paving the way to improve soybeans’ performance […]

Civil engineering student named STRIPES director

Ask Matt Wheeler why he got involved in STRIPES, and he’ll say he was hungry.  Not for involvement or community service. No, he was literally hungry. And STRIPES had free pizza. “That was enough to go the first time,” he laughed. On January 1, the junior civil and environmental engineering student took the reigns as […]

Mizzou Engineering alumnus takes success to new heights

As he began contemplating college, a counselor at William Baker’s high school in Fulton, Mo. urged the young man to take an aptitude test, and not surprisingly, Baker scored well as a potential engineer. It’s something that runs in his family; both of his grandfathers were civil engineers. In the fall of 1971, Baker enrolled […]
