Modified vascular tissue patches developed in a bioengineering lab at Mizzou and implanted into pigs showed better integration than existing commercially available biological patches. The results have potential to improve such material currently being used in human surgical procedures.
The Mizzou Women Mentoring Women program, halfway through its second year, has implemented suggestions from first-year participants to support the goal of retaining female engineering students.
As an incoming freshman, Charles Meyer didn’t know anything about research. But when he was encouraged to apply for the Discovery Fellow undergraduate research program. Now, he’s not only acclimated to research — he’s thrived.
After a sabbatical in Ireland, Robert O’Connell brought back a modern teaching method for use in the undergraduate engineering classroom and also began a new study abroad course to Ireland.
Corey Matzat accomplished a great deal before coming to MU — including a perfect 36 on the ACT. Now, the Presidential Scholar is studying electrical and computer engineering and doing research as part of the Discovery Fellow undergraduate research program.
A group of Columbia high school students will have the opportunity to learn all the necessary skills to build and launch a rocket, thanks to Mizzou engineering students.
A team of researchers aims to create an easily inserted and withdrawn device to block any debris from reaching the brain during aortic valve replacement surgery.
Michaela Becchi, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Missouri, received nearly $500,000 for research on data-intensive uses for GPU clusters.
Dave Cockrill is an alumnus of the College of Engineering who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 1985 and is currently the first plant manager at a plant in the Kansas City area.
In the inaugural year of a new category at the 30th annual Research and Creative Activities Forum, two MU chemical engineering students won second and third place in the Engineering/Computer & Information Sciences category. Jing Wang, who won second place, and Jiangyun Zhu, who took third said they practiced a lot for the presentation.
