As an undergrad, Jian “Javen” Lin had every intention to go into industry after completing his doctorate. Instead, he discovered a passion for research and decided to continue in academia.
Common cooling solutions in heat transfer are not sufficient for today’s electronics. Researchers around the world, including Hongbin “Bill” Ma, are looking for solutions to this pervasive and growing problem.
A chemical engineering research team is working to develop a solution to help existing power plants capture and store excess carbon dioxide emissions.
Researchers in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department have devised a system that creates a toroidal- (or ring-) shaped plasma emission in open atmosphere.
MU researchers have taken note of the keen interest in energy efficiency in the business and construction. As a result, consortium of six campus energy initiatives has come together as the Midwest Energy Efficiency Research Consortium (MEERC).
Just a few feet below the surface of the Earth — seasonally baked dry in summer’s heat and frozen solid in icy winter months — the soil remains a stable 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on the location. This constant temperature represents an incredible source of environmentally friendly, sustainable energy to heat and cool […]
The yellow dwarf star at the center of our solar system that reliably illuminates and warms this planet was considered a deity in ancient cultures. The science behind the sun’s energy only gradually occurred to the curious and the ingenious. Today, the ability to harvest solar energy is viewed as one of the foremost solutions […]
Three teams of MU civil engineering students received top-tier placements for their paper proposals in the 2011 FAA Design Competition last June. The students spent a semester preparing for the competition in Carlos Sun’s Fall 2010 Airport Engineering course with the end goal of submitting a design project of their choice to compete in the […]
As members of a carbon resource dependent culture gazing into our uncertain energy future, we are daily inundated with stories on topics of high fuel prices, pollution, global warming and energy alternatives that are less than economically feasible or that might even be socially irresponsible. But William “Bill” Jacoby, an associate professor of biological engineering […]
University of Missouri engineering students took the opportunity to celebrate National Engineers Week, Feb. 21-27, by attending and participating in the St. Louis Science Center’s annual event. In honor of Engineers Week, the center invited organizations and universities to meet and talk with visitors — children and their families — about engineering and what it means […]
