Biological engineering senior lands $10,000 NCMR scholarship

Biological engineering senior Bryant Harris’ future fell into place when he learned he had been awarded a $10,000 research scholarship from the National Consortium for Measurement and Signature Intelligence Research (NCMR). The scholarship program was established to encourage students to consider technical career paths within the intelligence community. “I was overwhelmed with joy when I […]

New student group focuses on hacking, a.k.a. creative repurposing

When most people think of a hacker, they don’t imagine a school-sponsored club that meets once a week, much less a school funded organization. They generally imagine an unknown person who steals private information behind the screen. But for a new MU group, hacking means a constructive way to learn about repurposing systems for new […]

Project to develop renewable energy source evaluation tools

When it comes to moving this country’s energy consumption toward renewable resources “the lights are on.” But the “nobody’s home” punch line of the old cliché just as easily refers to the lack of available tools to help businesses, organizations and individuals make informed decisions about the viability and the political and economic impact of […]

Fulbright students from Afghanistan work to improve transportation infrastructure

Years of unfavorable conditions can spawn an abundance of opportunities for development.

The three visiting scholars are working with Carlos Sun, professor […]

Neuro-LEGO Robotics program thrives at Mizzou

Five years ago University of Missouri engineering faculty submitted a proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) with the goal of training engineering graduate students in professional skills by partnering with the Columbia Public Schools and other mid-Missouri schools. The team – who adopted the name Incorporating Science, Industrial Technology and Engineering (InSite) – worked […]

Engineers Without Borders chapter takes flight at Mizzou

A little delegation goes a long way – 1,764 miles to be exact. The Mizzou Engineers Without Borders (EWB) chapter, formed in 2007, is making headway into the assessment and rehabilitation of a wastewater treatment facility in the small town of Ciudad España, Honduras. A subset chapter group of seven students and one professional mentor […]

Yuwen Zhang publishes innovative textbook

Yuwen Zhang, professor in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department, stands at the forefront of his field in closing educational gaps. In June he published a premier textbook in an effort to cover all pertinent topics of emerging technologies in a single volume, something Zhang said does not exist. Zhang co-authored “Advanced Heat and Mass […]

Conference targets green construction

The message of an upcoming Greening Midwest Communities conference is that with energy efficient “green” construction, everyone wins. The construction process can become more efficient with savings for both the contractor and the client. The building industry gets a needed boost and homeowners’ energy bills will be reduced. The rest of us benefit from a […]

Family Weekend comes to the College of Engineering

A group of tigers is sometimes called an ambush, and this year’s Family Weekend might feel like just that. With enrollment at a record high, expect crowds on campus when tiger families join alumni and students Sept. 24-26. And following extensive building renovations and additions, what better time for the College of Engineering to host […]

Engineering diversity program enjoys continued success

“I’m really excited about significant number of outstanding minority engineering students coming to Mizzou, largely due to program incentives we’ve been able to put into place,” said J.R. Swanegan, diversity director with the University of Missouri’s College of Engineering. Preliminary enrollment figures for the 2010-2011 academic year show that even with the overall growth in […]
