Students explore future internships, jobs at Engineering Career Fair
Mechanical Engineering student Brooke Becker already has an internship for the summer, but she was eager to take an active role in the Spring 2023 Engineering Career Fair. “I’m looking forward to talking to as many companies as I can,” Becker said prior to the event on March 2. “I also signed up to be a fair volunteer, and I’m happy to be able to help out and give back to other students, especially after attending every other fair during my college experience and benefitting from it.”
Missouri Water Center works to monitor water quality, quantities; train students
When it comes to water, there are a lot of stakeholders. Not only do we all need access to clean water—including fish and wildlife—but local economies rely on lakes and rivers for agriculture and tourism. When there’s not enough, droughts can destroy a year’s worth of crops. Too much can cause flooding that devastates communities. With those factors in mind, Mizzou established the Missouri Water Center a year ago, merging two former centers.
