Ice sheets becoming a hot topic

Rising sea levels are probably the most serious effect of global warming, and have already displaced portions of the world’s population, an MU College of Engineering professor warned Wednesday. “These effects are not in the future; these effects are happening now,” said Curt Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor whose research focuses on ice […]

CoE geotechnical team builds on its success in national competition

Overcoming a last–minute change in design requirements, the CoE geotechnical engineering team recently won a national competition for the second time in three years. “We felt it was a great accomplishment to win again,” said graduate student Daniel Huaco, a member of both winning teams. “I just wanted to make our program look good.” Mizzou […]

Engineering a personal success

MU’s College of Engineering houses mechanical engineers who work on complex topics ranging from ultrafast lasers to energy conversion techniques. Yet CoE student Jess Chism is earning kudos throughout the college for resolving the much more modest engineering dilemma presented by a batch of broken bumble balls. Chism, a mechanical engineering senior due to graduate […]

CoE students to compete in a national geotechnical competition

The CoE geotechnical engineering team is relying on a mix of experience and precision to repeat its 2005 victory at a national civil engineering competition. Mizzou Engineering’s four–member team—comprising graduate student Daniel Huaco and undergraduate students Hendrik Schoeman, Bradley Koester and Daniel Kuhn—will compete Feb. 21 in the Geo–Institute of the American Society of Civil […]

CoE working to lighten the military’s load

The high–tech American soldier—equipped with computers, radios and night–vision goggles—is by now a familiar figure. Less well–known is the physical and logistical burden the electronic equipment represents. Soldiers already are laden with tens of pounds of batteries to provide power for all the electronic devices and weaponry so prominent on today’s battlefield, and the military’s […]

Engineering safer bridges

The partial collapse of a New York state bridge a couple of years ago may prove to be a milestone of sorts in the maintenance of America’s civil infrastructure. Dunn Memorial Bridge, which spans the Hudson River in New York to connect Albany and Rensselaer, was temporarily closed in July 2005 when a portion of […]

CoE partners with campus colleagues to improve environment for women faculty members

National concern has been focused in recent years on America’s shrinking lead in science and technology. With the aid of a three–year National Science Foundation grant totaling nearly $500,000, the University of Missouri–Columbia College of Engineering is joining an intercollegiate effort to help bolster the educational foundation in those fields by improving the campus environment […]

CoE fortifies educational and research leadership through new faculty members

Two new faculty members have joined the MU College of Engineering, strengthening the college’s education force while fortifying its foundations for groundbreaking research. Zhiqiang Hu, a wastewater treatment expert, started work last August as an assistant professor in the CoE’s civil and environmental engineering department. Nam–Jung Kim, a nanotechnology researcher, became the CoE mechanical and […]

College of Engineering’s bioinformatics program receives $1 million boost

The MU College of Engineering’s bioinformatics program has received a financial boost from an alumnus that college administrators believe will give them the ability to attract the “very best” in the field. Paul and Dianne Shumaker are donating $1 million to the college to support research into the life–saving field, which uses computer analysis to […]
