Student Achievement

James Bryce, a senior in civil engineering, is one of 12 students nationwide to be selected for the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program this summer. The program introduces students to the impact they might have on public policy as professional engineers. Bryce wrote to faculty mentor Professor John Bowders from Washington saying, […]

Uncovering radar signatures to detect landmines

Countries throughout the world have joined forces to try to defuse the effects of landmines, which kill and injure thousands of people each year. Mizzou Engineering Professor Dominic Ho has contributed substantially to that effort during the nearly 10 years in which he has focused on landmine detection research, having already helped develop a ground-penetrating […]

Finding new causes for polar ice sheet changes

The Antarctic ice sheet may grow thinner or thicker from natural changes in snowfall that are unrelated to long-term trends, according to a recently released study co-authored by a University of Missouri engineering researcher. Experts are keeping a particularly close eye on changes in polar ice sheet thickness and mass as possible indicators of global […]

Mizzou grad to serial entrepreneur

Bob Lozano has aptly been referred to as a serial entrepreneur for the string of start-up technology businesses he has been associated with since he graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 1979. Lozano credits his passion for self-employable enterprises to his professors and fellow graduate students at […]

Small spark gaps; big X-rays

Pulsed power technology has many potential applications and University of Missouri’s College of Engineering researchers are hotly pursuing some of them in the College’s pulsed power labs. Funded by Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M., a National Nuclear Security Administration Lab, an investigation by Scott Kovaleski, an assistant professor in electrical and computer engineering, involves […]

Building a “smart” carpet for safer living

Nearly one–third of American seniors 65 and older fall each year, and such falls cause more deaths than any other injury, government statistics show. Harry Tyrer, a University of Missouri electrical and computer engineering professor, hopes to create a safer environment for seniors. Tyrer has received $200,000 from the Alzheimer’s Association to work with MU’s […]

Mizzou Engineering professor earns career recognition

Mizzou Engineering Professor Curt Davis is being honored by an international technology organization for his contributions to satellite remote sensing research. Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor and director of the MU Center for Geospatial Intelligence, has been named a “fellow” by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Davis’ new IEEE rank—the […]

Dominic Ho’s research receives U.S. Army recognition

Dominic Ho, a University of Missouri associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been recognized by a U.S. Army official for his work on developing a remote–controlled landmine detector. Ho has been working for several years with the Army, private defense contractors and researchers from the University of Florida and Duke University to come […]

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 professor receives college honors

College of Engineering leaders recently honored Professor Jim Keller for earning the University of Missouri’s highest academic rank with his pioneering computer research. Keller, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and computer science, has been named a curators’ professor, a designation given to the UM system’s most successful and prominent scholars. College administrators and […]
