Building a career with hands-on experience: Lofgren earns civil engineering degree

Ryan Lofgren, an Iowa native, first toured Mizzou as a rising junior in high school and fell in love with the character of campus. After going on various other visits in the year that followed, he says nothing quite compared to his experience at MU. So, he followed his gut and could not be happier with that decision.

Gain technical skills and community by getting involved in undergraduate research

It’s Show Me Research Week, and engineering students are showing up to present work on the world’s most pressing problems. Kate Barnard has been involved in research since her sophomore year. A mechanical engineering student, she’s been working with civil engineering Assistant Professor Maryam Salehi on multiple research projects in order to reduce the number of microplastics in our water.


Mizzou Engineers hold key roles in international data science symposium

Nearly 350 Transportation officials from across the globe discussed smarter ways to build and maintain roads during the third annual Data Science for Pavements Symposium (DSPS24) last month.

Ensuring a safer world: Baolin Deng

When Baolin Deng, University of Missouri William Andrew Davidson Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and co-director of the Missouri Water Center, went off to college at China University of Geosciences, he dreamed of discovering hidden mines and treasures. Little did he know that removing arsenic and other pollutants from water would actually be his calling.


Faculty, staff, students, alumni recognized with Engineering Awards

Mizzou Engineering on Friday recognized outstanding faculty, staff and students for their dedication and service as part of the College’s annual awards banquet.


Mizzou Engineer leads synthesis to study safety roadway countermeasures

A Mizzou Engineer is leading a project to help determine what measures state departments of transportation (DOTs) are using to help keep motorists safe. Henry Brown, a research engineer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is Principal Investigator on the synthesis, which is under the umbrella of the National Cooperative Highway Research Project (NCHRP). Findings are expected to be published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine next year.


Construction Management Leadership Institute helps professionals hone skills

Just a few years after graduating from Mizzou Engineering, Joe Modica is already climbing the leadership ladder, now serving as an assistant project manager at Nabholz Corporation. So when he saw an opportunity to expand upon his engineering and leadership skills at Mizzou, he seized the opportunity. Now, Modica is one of 36 professionals who successfully completed the inaugural Construction Management Leadership Institute, a three-day intensive training for civil engineers and construction professionals.
