Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality

Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality

Weiyu Feng uses virtual reality goggles to experience a classroom he is not physically in. Through the goggles, he can see classmate Will Slama in a realistic setting rather than on screen. Students unable to attend in-person classes in the future could still get the full classroom experience, thanks to emerging virtual environment technologies. Fang [...]

Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

This photo illustration shows how a drone captures aerial video of a farm. A Mizzou research team is devising a way to pull high-resolution images from that video footage automatically. Imagine being able to assess the health of a single plant in the middle of a field by automatically analyzing a photo of it. The [...]

Vidura, an AI advisor, will connect human inquiries to mass amounts of data. Want your smartphone to find a restaurant? No problem. Want artificial intelligence to help you plan a healthy diet on a grocery budget of $400 a month? You’re on your own. But research around artificial intelligence happening at Mizzou Engineering may change [...]
Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

REU Program students study consumer networking. Students from across the country will spend the next 10 weeks developing consumer networking skills. It’s part of a Research Experiences for Undergraduates, or REU, program at Mizzou Engineering funded by the National Science Foundation. And for some, it’s life changing. The REU program gives undergraduates an opportunity to conduct [...]
Engineering Students Help Create TV Production

Engineering Students Help Create TV Production

Scene: In the not-too-distant future, a digital artist creates a machine that integrates with the biometrically-attached technology imbedded in most of the population—cell phone technology implanted in a person’s arm and Google glasses for one’s eye. Her machine pulls all of the data from these imbedded devices to create art. When the artist’s sister, a […]

The course, “Connectivity and 5G” uses a multidisciplinary approach with students and instructors from a variety of fields of study including […]

The End of Moore’s Law

The End of Moore’s Law

As our electronic devices continue to grow in power and shrink in size, the semiconductor industry has been challenged to increase the number of transistors per unit. For 50 years, the industry has basically observed Moore’s Law, named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore. He observed in 1965 that the number of transistors per silicon chip […]

Students Create and Innovate at International MIT Reality Hack

Students Create and Innovate at International MIT Reality Hack

Four students represented the College of Engineering at the MIT Reality Hack where participants were challenged with developing new cross reality experiences using the industry’s best technology. The hackathon took place in January over five days filled with workshops, networking, and of course, hacking. The MIT Reality Hack is an international competition with half students […]
