Mizzou Engineering welcomes new faculty
Bio-inspired materials, sustainable energy, autonomic computing and advanced manufacturing are just a few of the areas of expertise new faculty members are bringing to Mizzou Engineering.
Post-doctoral fellowship program provides transition to academia
Roberto Nunez is using the power of mathematics to ignite advancements in mechanical engineering this year as part of a prestigious post-doctoral fellowship at Mizzou. Roberto Nunez Preparing Future Faculty for Inclusive Excellence (PFFIE) is a selective program designed to help recent Ph.D. graduates transition to full-time faculty positions.
Mizzou Engineering teams up with CAFNR to secure state’s first autonomous tractor
After more than a year of waiting, researchers at the University of Missouri welcome the arrival of one of the nation’s first-of-its-kind electric, autonomous tractors.
NSF Research Traineeship program to prepare materials and data scientists
A five-year, $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is establishing a doctoral training program at the University of Missouri to help prepare the next generation of scientists and engineers to work in the emerging fields of materials science and data science and analytics.
Engineers spend the summer gaining a global perspective through study abroad
Studying abroad is a great way for students to engage in their education outside the classroom. At Mizzou, one in five undergraduates study abroad, going beyond The Columns to gain a global perspective.
Ph.D. student awarded U.S. Department of Energy research fellowship
A Mizzou Engineer has been selected to participate in a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research fellowship program designed to support graduate students working on energy-related research.
Mizzou Engineering camps allow students to explore STEM opportunities
Mizzou Engineering hosted six summer camps designed to showcase opportunities in STEM.
Mizzou Engineer improving algorithms that power self-driving vehicles
Artificial intelligence (AI) makes all sorts of decisions for us. Netflix recommends our next movie. Amazon suggests products based on what’s in our shopping cart. Facebook determines the content that shows up in our feeds. While we have a basic idea of how these algorithms work, most of us don’t need machines to further explain why they are making those conclusions.
