Many university undergraduate students don’t have the opportunity to participate in specialized research opportunities. Thanks to a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU) grant coordinated by Satish Nair, a University of Missouri professor of electrical engineering, 12 students from across the country were able to participate in a nine-week summer research opportunity […]
Engineering encompasses a wide array of fields and disciplines, and while the majors offered to undergraduates help to define fields of study, sometimes a little extra attention in the way of a minor can help students expand a chosen field into a research breakthrough or a career. That’s the intent of three new minors offered […]
Toothpicks and gumdrops may not be the materials most civil engineers use when building bridge supports, but for elementary school-aged students, they are perfect for teaching how design can affect a structure. In an effort to introduce engineering’s potential to children long before they are ready for college entrance exams, several engineering departments and organizations […]
