The Mizzou chapter of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) took home first place among 12 schools in the University Student Rocket Challenge at SEDS’ annual conference, SpaceVision2016. This year’s event was held at Purdue University the first weekend in November.
The MU College of Engineering’s annual Scholarship Dinner was held Oct. 27 to honor the College’s generous donors and our outstanding students. The College of Engineering awarded more than $1.2 million to more than 540 students this year thanks to the support of its donors.
A ‘sixth sense’: Researchers patent device that can increase affordability, portability of chem-bio sensing
A new patent by a University of Missouri College of Engineering researcher is poised to make chemical and biological agent sensing much cheaper and more portable. Mark Prelas, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, recently filed a patent for a new deep-level transient spectrometer (DLTS) design. This patent pairs with previous patents […]
Researchers at the University of Missouri, including members of the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department, identified the most efficient ways states can partner to maximize renewable energy and cut carbon emissions.
Guoliang Huang, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, led an MU research team that published “Enhanced flexural wave sensing by adaptive gradient-index metamaterials” in Scientific Reports. The paper illustrates how the team developed active metamaterials to boost the elastic wave signals in large structures.
Mark Prelas, professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and five of his graduate students — Matthew Boraas, Fernando De La Torre Aguilar, J.D. Seelig, Modeste Tchakoua Tchouaso and Denis Wisniewski — wrote Nuclear Batteries and Radioisotopes, published by Springer Press in its prestigious “Lecture Notes in Energy” series earlier this year. The book spent time as the No. 1 new release in Nuclear on Amazon.
TECH-SERIES is a consulting program put on by the Small Business and Technology Development Office. The program is funded by University of Missouri Extension and Missouri Technology Corporation.
