As part of Engineers Without Borders, the MU chapter traveled to Majé de Chimán, Panama, as part of their continued efforts to provide a reliable water distribution, filtration and storage system for the community there.
The goal of the event is to showcase the field of engineering and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers to girls in grades six through nine and their parents. Women are typically underrepresented in engineering careers, and events such as Daughter Engineering Day seek to help grow the number of women in the field by developing an early interest.
Hosted by MU’s Neural Engineering Laboratory, the 13th annual Robotics Design Challenge welcomed 325 participating K-8th graders to test the robots they had spent months creating.
Mary Carlson (BS ChE ’78) wanted to help future generations of students like her, establishing a scholarship for MU undergraduate chemical engineering students, with a focus on women and underrepresented minorities, and she continued that support this year on Mizzou Giving Day.
Two classes of Benton Elementary School fifth graders were invited to the MU transportation simulator lab recently for a morning of educational fun. Benton’s STEM program partnered with ZouTrans, MU’s “vibrant undergrad and graduate research community,” in the College of Engineering, to bring approximately 50 students to the facility for a lesson on traffic safety, […]
Robert and Marcia Healy, longtime supporters of Mizzou and the College of Engineering, were honored at the Potential Energy Cafe grand opening in February.
Some of Ray Kowalik’s fondest memories can be traced back to the time he spent with friends while he was a civil engineering student at the University of Missouri — simple things, he said, like sitting outside and watching the girls go by, walking around campus, a few late nights at The Shack and attending […]
In the spring of 2015 Associate Professor Paul Chan announced his retirement after 35 years on the MU chemical engineering faculty. It wasn’t an easy decision for him. He enjoys what he does, especially his work as the department’s undergraduate advisor as well as his decade-long position as chair of the College of Engineering’s scholarship committee.
