Occeña retires from IMSE

Associate Professor Luis Occeña, after more than 34 years in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE), retired at the end of the fall 2021 semester. Serving as department chair from 2007-2020, he guided the department through challenges and opportunities during his tenure. He is most proud of ensuring IMSE has a solid […]

Researcher developing sensors to measure hormone levels in water

Researcher developing sensors to measure hormone levels in water

Fidalgo A Mizzou Engineer is working on a way to produce sensors that could quickly detect hormone levels in ponds, lakes and rivers. Maria Fidalgo, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, received funding from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) for the work, which will begin this spring. Specifically, Fidalgo is partnering with USGS’s [...]

Enhancing inclusivity in teaching and classrooms was the primary focus of the College’s annual Symposium on Engineering Teaching Excellence, held Friday, Dec. 10 as a hybrid online and in-person event. The Dean’s Council on Teaching Excellence organized the symposium to help Engineering instructors enhance their classroom environment through inclusive teaching methods. Roger Fales, associate dean […]

Buttlar furthers work to add plastic wastes to asphalt mixtures

Buttlar furthers work to add plastic wastes to asphalt mixtures

Glen Barton Chair in Flexible Pavements Bill Buttlar in the Mizzou Asphalt Pavement and Innovation Lab. Plastics are made to last hundreds of years. That’s a problem when you’re talking about bottles, bags and straws discarded after one use. However, for roads that need to support heavy traffic over the course of decades, plastic could [...]
Guidoboni shares intersections of engineering, precision health

Guidoboni shares intersections of engineering, precision health

Associate Dean for Research Giovanna Guidoboni presents at the NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series. From the development of home sensors that monitor vital signs to computational modeling of the human brain, there are numerous intersections between engineering and health care. That’s why Associate Dean for Research Giovanna Guidoboni urged faculty across campus to partner with [...]
Researcher to study ways to prevent gum formation in fuel

Researcher to study ways to prevent gum formation in fuel

Gasoline doesn’t come with an expiration date, but over time, some components of unused fuel and crude oil can oxidize and form gum-like deposits through a process called autoxidation. Scientists understand the chemical steps for this process, but they aren’t sure why it happens in some cases but not others. Now, a Mizzou Engineer has [...]
S-STEM Scholarship provides holistic support to new students

S-STEM Scholarship provides holistic support to new students

CEE S-STEM Scholars listen to project leaders during a Meet and Greet event held earlier this semester. A new scholarship program within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering provides students with more than tuition money. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the five-year, million-dollar Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) project also [...]
Approximate computing remains vulnerable to attacks; Mizzou Engineers to present findings at IEEE DATE conference

Approximate computing remains vulnerable to attacks; Mizzou Engineers to present findings at IEEE DATE conference

Hoque Companies relying on faster, less precise computing to gain energy efficiency still need to be cautious against cyberattacks despite a recent study that indicated otherwise, Mizzou Engineers have found. At the heart of the research is approximate computing, which is known for its effectiveness in improvising the energy efficiency of deep neural network (DNN) [...]
Mizzou Engineers edit book on supply chain analytics

Mizzou Engineers edit book on supply chain analytics

Analytics will play a significant role in decisions around supply chain management as manufacturers take a closer look at operations in a post-COVID world. To help researchers, industries and students gain a better understanding of where the field is headed, two Mizzou Engineers recently edited a book addressing supply chain problems, analytical methods and case [...]

Orton focuses on STEM outreach efforts to inspire next generation

Orton A Mizzou Engineer took time away from her busy academic and research schedule earlier this week to share her expertise on bridges with local middle school students. Sarah Orton, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, addressed about 100 seventh graders at Jefferson Middle School, a STEAM Academy in Columbia. “They were really [...]
