Chemical engineering adds a student lounge

An MU College of Engineering renovation project that began with the razing of the high bay portion of Lafferre Hall in early in 2008 is nearing completion, with dedication slated for early November. The reconstruction, which will add upgraded classrooms, labs and student commons, is not the only new student-centric space being added within Mizzou […]

MU Researchers collaborate with company to take green technology on the road

MU Researchers collaborate with company to take green technology on the road

Ground corncobs, a plentiful agricultural by-product in Missouri and surrounding Corn Belt states, are the main ingredient in a new technology that may soon power natural-gas-powered vehicles on the country’s highways. The technology vital to making this a reality was developed by Peter Pfeifer, professor and chair of the MU Department of Physics, and Galen […]

Chemical engineering student presents prize-winning poster

It is no small accomplishment to win the Chancellor’s Award in the Physical Sciences and Engineering category at the 2009 Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievements Forum. This year judges reviewed the posters of 140 undergraduates and rated them on theoretical motivation, context within each student’s academic discipline, mastery of the relevant concepts and presentation quality. […]

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 […]
