The College of Engineering raised nearly $500 for the University of Missouri’s annual United Way campaign at its 2016 College of Engineering United Way Barbecue and Raffle Fundraiser. The event was held in conjunction with Mizzou’s near 50-year tradition of raising money for the Heart of Missouri United Way and included a hamburger lunch and […]
At Mizzou, the College of Engineering’s SHPE chapter celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month, which occurs annually between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15, with a panel discussion with Latino and Latina academians in STEM fields.
Baolin Deng, C.W. LaPierre Professor of civil and environmental engineering, will serve on the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board’s Drinking Water Committee until 2018. He’ll also serve on a task force to update the Missouri Water Plan, an effort being undertaken by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Tony Han, associate professor of computer science, currently is on a research sabbatical, working on cutting edge research in the field of deep learning.
Silver nanoparticles have a wide array of uses, one of which is to treat drinking water for harmful bacteria and viruses. But do silver nanoparticles also kill off potentially beneficial bacteria or cause other harmful effects to water-based ecosystems? A new paper from a team of University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers says that’s not the case.
The Fall 2016 University of Missouri College of Engineering Career Fair, held Sept. 13 at Mizzou Arena, proved to be a record-setting success. A total of 190 companies participated in the event, topping the previous record of 175.
Elizabeth Loboa, dean and bioengineering professor of the University of Missouri College of Engineering, was named a fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) at the society’s annual meeting held Oct. 5-8 in Minneapolis.
The team used what’s called electrical cell-substrate impedance spectroscopy (ECIS) to monitor the process stimulated human fat, or human adipose stem cells (hASC), goes through to convert to bone cells.
Research found that optimal production levels decreased significantly for items that have a high environmental cost to produce, such as beef, with the environmental cost being calculated in terms of carbon dioxide emissions embodied in the creation of that food product.
The University of Missouri College of Engineering and School of Medicine once again received approximately $500,000 to cover five grants for cutting edge biomedical innovations from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
