STEM Cubs ignites students’ curiosity for engineering
The College of Engineering’s STEM Cubs had students from kindergarten through fifth grade roaring about STEM. STEM Cubs is a day camp aimed at increasing access to science, technology, engineering and math for lower income and underrepresented minority students. Held three times a year, the fall edition focused on structure building. The camp incorporates STEM concepts into fun activities that resonant with students and show them these seemingly challenging subjects are exciting and doable.
Career Fair 2019: Repetition pays off for Scanlan
There’s a reason why Scanlan has attended eight career fairs: The exposure is invaluable. Employers "are seeing hundreds, if not thousands, of applications. You can’t let them stumble upon you. You really have to be like, ‘No, I’m the one you’re hiring,’” he said.
Career Fair: Employers reach more than 1,000 Mizzou Engineers
More than 200 companies spoke at length with more than 1,000 students at the 2019 Mizzou Engineering Career Fair on Tuesday. Some were new to this particular event, some longtime participants — and all received a deluge of students eager to show off their skills and resumes in search of a job, co-op or internship.
Mizzou Engineering goes global for International Week
The College of Engineering welcomed international students with open arms and encouraged others to take their college experiences global as a part of last week’s International Week.
New Student BBQ helps engineers find community
Peace Park was filled with the smell of hamburgers and the chatter of excited freshmen as they got to know their new family at the College of Engineering. The New Student BBQ on Thursday evening was, according to Dean Elizabeth Loboa, the largest she had ever seen. She hoped the barbecue gave new students the opportunity to get to know the College more and build lasting connections.

Trio of federally-funded programs showcase computational neuroscience
If you’re looking for a holistic approach to neuroscience research and education, the University of Missouri is the place to be each summer thanks to three federally funded, interdisciplinary programs. Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Professor Satish Nair leads an interdisciplinary team of faculty and grad students who put on two programs funded by the National Science Foundation and another by the National Institutes of Health.
Mizzou Engineering hosts prestigious AmeriMech Symposium
Mizzou Engineering, in conjunction with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine and the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, hosted the AmeriMech Symposium: Non-reciprocal and Topological Wave Phenomena in Solids and Fluids recently.
Army Ants wrap up an incredible year of FIRST Robotics
Army Ants, Columbia’s FIRST Robotics team, recently wrapped a tremendous academic year. The organization includes nearly 40 students from Columbia Public Schools alongside several adult mentors. That’s where Mizzou Engineering comes in. Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering Professor Kevin Gillis has been a mentor for the organization since its foundation in 2011, including spending several years as its chief mentor.
IISE recognizes MU Engineering’s Noble for stellar career
The Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, like many professional engineering organizations, recognizes its top members by naming them fellows. IISE fellows are elected for making “significant, nationally recognized contributions to industrial and systems engineering.” Jim Noble fits the bill to a T, and that’s why the MU Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Professor earned one of IISE’s loftiest titles this year.
