Going the Extra Mile for Chemical Engineering

Opportunities for educational and personal growth outside the classroom are readily available on the University of Missouri campus and while some students do not actively seek them, others jump at the chance. Peter Cosgrove took the leap. A senior in chemical engineering and president of the University of Missouri student chapter of the American Institute […]

Marrero honored for lending expertise

University of Missouri’s Extension Commerce Resource Development Association (UECRDA) has honored Professor Thomas Marrero as a Friend of UECRDA for “providing outstanding support to the association.” Virgil Woolridge, a business development specialist with University Extension, and past-president of UECRDA made the presentation to the MU chemical engineering professor December 5. “A small Mexico, Mo., manufacturer […]

Mary Carlson, establishes scholarship

‘Tis better to give than to receive – just ask Mary Carlson. A 1978 graduate of the University of Missouri, Carlson received her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and has been working her way up the corporate ladder ever since. But one thing has remained constant-her need to give back. Carlson recently established a scholarship […]

Mizzou Engineering gears up to ease nuclear expertise shortage

Responding to a nationwide shortage of engineers for the nuclear industry, Mizzou Engineering is launching a two-pronged program to encourage both scholarship and training in the field. “Our goal is to build a core of individuals who are both high-impact researchers and educators so that they can effectively educate future generations of nuclear engineers,” College […]

Drive and determination: Katie Pfefferkorn

Katie Pfefferkorn, BS ChE ’07, is set to compete in the Missouri 340, a canoe and kayak race that begins in Kansas City on July 15 and ends 340 miles later in St. Charles. Paddlers must make the grueling trip in 100 hours. In its third year, Pfefferkorn has competed each time. In 2006, she […]

Mizzou team steering towards the hydrogen highway

The University of Missouri’s alternative energy team has undergone a transformation that may prove prophetic. After 15 years of building a solar car for competition, the team decided in late 2005 to steer instead towards the “hydrogen highway” by constructing a fuel cell car. It’s a course with few maps but great potential to revolutionize […]

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 […]

Mizzou Engineering at the Capitol

Like many working for the nano revolution, Mizzou Engineering sophomore Daniel Tappmeyer is convinced that the science of very small things is enormously important to our future. So Tappmeyer traveled to Jefferson City for this year’s undergraduate research day at the Missouri State Capitol in hopes of shoring up legislative support for nanotechnology research, which […]

Running on foam

The Mizzou Engineering chemical car team’s real test will come not when its vehicle starts—but when it stops. Eight Mizzou students are competing for the first time later this month in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ (AIChE) annual Chem–E–Car Competition. Competing teams must design and build a model car—roughly the size of a shoebox—powered […]
