Bioengineering grad hits the ground running

Michael Maloney always knew that biology would play a role in his career, but when it came time to go to college, he worried that a straight degree in biology wouldn’t translate into the practical applications he wanted from his educational investment. “I heard from my mentor about a new program at the University of […]

Mizzou Engineering student team designs better septic tank

A Mizzou Engineering student team is devising a new type of septic tank that would better protect the environment. About 25 percent of the U.S. population—and 40 percent of new developments—use septic systems, according to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Web site statistics. But wastewater treated and released by many septic systems still contains nutrients, primarily […]

New Mizzou Engineering student organization on tap

Water quality will be the focus of a new Mizzou student organization now in the works. Prompted by requests from environmental engineers throughout Missouri, MU’s College of Engineering is laying the foundation for a student chapter of the Water Environment Federation (WEF). Only two other Missouri universities—the Missouri University of Science and Technology and Washington […]

Engineering students help residents stay warm

Engineering students help residents stay warm

Some Mizzou Engineering students are sharing the warmth of the season in an unusually practical way. About 30 Engineering Ambassadors and Mizzou Engineering Student Council members visited several low-income Columbia residents on Dec. 1 to help weatherize their homes. Using weather-stripping and other insulating tools, the students worked to reduce utility costs by improving energy […]

Energy symposium spotlights renewable alternatives

Energy experts agreed during a recent symposium cosponsored by the College of Engineering that America’s future fuel needs must be met with a mix of renewable and traditional resources. “Thermochemical conversion can produce energy, fuels and chemicals from the full spectrum of biomass resources.”—Bill Jacoby However, a CoE member of the symposium believes that the […]

CoE researcher seeks to shine light on autism diagnoses

Autism is widely known as a source of national crisis, a developmental disorder striking the lives of an increasing number of American families. But autism’s causes are still uncertain and its symptoms widely variable. Even autism’s diagnosis is grounded in behavioral evaluations rather than objective physical tests. Gang Yao, a University of Missouri–Columbia biological engineering […]

CoE researchers receive funding for sensitive cancer detection devices

Two MU College of Engineering researchers working on tabletop cancer detection devices will receive $470,000 from a private foundation dedicated to accelerating the development of new medical technologies. Xudong Fan and John Viator, both assistant biological engineering professors, have each won grants from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, a Florida–based not–for–profit foundation that supports biomedical […]
