What does it take to be a faculty entrepreneur?

Several on the University of Missouri College of Engineering faculty are “doing,” having launched businesses based on their research breakthroughs. What follows is an examination of how faculty launch start-up ventures and a look at a handful of some of engineering’s adventurous risk-takers’ efforts, in various stages of development.

Biological engineering senior lands $10,000 NCMR scholarship

Biological engineering senior Bryant Harris’ future fell into place when he learned he had been awarded a $10,000 research scholarship from the National Consortium for Measurement and Signature Intelligence Research (NCMR). The scholarship program was established to encourage students to consider technical career paths within the intelligence community. “I was overwhelmed with joy when I […]

MU Nano Mems Semiconductor Utililization Lab opens to public

A for-fee Nano Mems Semiconductor Utililization Lab located in the University of Missouri’s College of Engineering has opened, offering academic and private industry investigators training and access to instrumentation, as well as contracted nano mems services. Through the NMS Utilization Lab, users may be trained to operate the equipment they require for their research or […]

Engineering students present undergraduate research at State Capitol

For many engineering students, a critical component of their education is research. Most students begin research their junior year — but others get a head start, including Sophomore Devin McCormack and Junior Bryant Harris. McCormack and Harris were among 26 students selected to present their undergraduate research at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City on […]

New nanotechnology center opens

Advanced technology research in Missouri will get a boost April 7 with the opening of the MU College of Engineering’s new nanotechnology center. The CoE Center for Micro/Nano Systems and Nanotechnology will research and develop highly miniaturized technology—so–called “nanotechnology”—that can be used for both military and private purposes. While the CoE already conducts such research, […]

Mizzou nanotechnology research team wins industry award

Mizzou Engineering Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay and her research team have won an industry award for combining nanotechnology with microchip–based technology to generate powerful shock waves and energy. Nanotech Briefs magazine, a three–year–old monthly digital publication for nanotechnology researchers, has selected the Mizzou team’s work as one of the year’s top 50 technologies or innovations in […]

Advancing nanotechnology research

C. W. LaPierre Chair and Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay gave an overview of research under way at the College of Engineering’s Center for Nano- and Micro-Electromechanical Systems and Nanotechnology as well as its goals during the center’s dedication on April 7. Gangopadhyay, an electrical and computer engineer, heads the college’s work on highly miniaturized technology that […]

CoE professor co-authors winning nanotechnology paper

A nanotechnology paper co–authored by CoE Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay earned top honors during a recent international science and technology conference. The paper, called “Nanostructured Energetic Materials,” won the nanotechnology session’s Best Paper Award during the 25th Army Science Conference in November, which featured presentations from scientists and engineers in government, industry and academia. The winning […]
