New engineering minors expand opportunities for undergraduates

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 […]

Outreach programs introduce engineering to younger students

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 […]

MU IMSE offers past, present, future IMSE students Lean Six Sigma certification

Lean Six Sigma is a quantitative approach to improving a process.

In an effort to ameliorate the situation, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization, International Exchange and Research Board (IREX), has launched an Iraq University Linkages Program (ULP) whose mission is to “strengthen university curricula, enhance and […]

Inaugural students graduate from Coordinated Undergraduate Degree Program

With a bass voice that precedes him, Chao Fang laughs as he talks about “singing confidently.” At 6’2”, the MU computer science student originally studying at China’s Shanghai University said he doesn’t try to dominate the bass section in the Mizzou Choral Union, but he can’t help indulging his love of singing. “I have a […]

MU CELDi helps company save more than $2 million

Proprietors of any household budget would rejoice in the discovery of a way to save a few dollars.
