Student Capstones Spring 2023 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Computer science students connect with local bakery for capstone project

Computer science students in the capstone group Pecan π Shop created a web application for bakery owners to manage all aspects of their businesses. The project was one of many that CS students worked on for their capstone course, a class that connects student groups with industry partners to solve a real-world problem.

Missouri Water Center works to monitor water quality, quantities; train students

When it comes to water, there are a lot of stakeholders. Not only do we all need access to clean water—including fish and wildlife—but local economies rely on lakes and rivers for agriculture and tourism. When there’s not enough, droughts can destroy a year’s worth of crops. Too much can cause flooding that devastates communities. With those factors in mind, Mizzou established the Missouri Water Center a year ago, merging two former centers.
