Mizzou Engineers, Physicians to Help Rural Missouri Plan Ahead for Pandemic: Geospatial Big Data is Key

This image from Professor Chi-Ren Shyu's work shows the distance between rural Missouri communities and nearest hospitals. Planning ahead for a pandemic—or any disaster situation—is costly and complex. Now, Mizzou researchers are hoping to take the guesswork out of it for Missouri’s smaller communities. The catalyst for the research is COVID-19. In spite of a [...]
Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the [...]
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19

The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for [...]

Flu researcher brings team together to tackle COVID-19

Henry Wan studies flu viruses and is now part of research tracking COVID-19. | Photo by Roger Meissen, Bond Life Sciences Center Professor Henry Wan has studied flu viruses for years, and he can assure you, coronavirus is not the same. It’s trickier. Less predictable And for many, deadlier. But there are insights scientists can [...]
Powering the Army of the Future

Powering the Army of the Future

Professor Bill Ma in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is proposing new electric power technology to support Army operations in 2035. Solar energy is expected to meet the energy demand for a variety of equipment associated with Army multi-domain operations in the future. Ma, who co-authored with Pengtao Wang, presented his white paper […]

Mizzou Engineers Develop New AI Advisor

Mizzou Engineers Develop New AI Advisor

Vidura, an AI advisor, will connect human inquiries to mass amounts of data. Want your smartphone to find a restaurant? No problem. Want artificial intelligence to help you plan a healthy diet on a grocery budget of $400 a month? You’re on your own. But research around artificial intelligence happening at Mizzou Engineering may change [...]
Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

REU Program students study consumer networking. Students from across the country will spend the next 10 weeks developing consumer networking skills. It’s part of a Research Experiences for Undergraduates, or REU, program at Mizzou Engineering funded by the National Science Foundation. And for some, it’s life changing. The REU program gives undergraduates an opportunity to conduct [...]
DEPC Recognized by National Academy of Inventors

DEPC Recognized by National Academy of Inventors

The College of Engineering established the Diverse Engineering Professionals Conference (DEPC) in 2017 to recognize diversity organizations and diverse students while promoting the college’s core college values of integrity, excellence and collaboration. Several student organizations, under the leadership of Assistant Dean for Inclusive Excellence and Strategic Initiatives Tojan Rahhal, launched the first conference in 2017 […]

New Cloaking Material Could Protect Buildings, Soldiers

New Cloaking Material Could Protect Buildings, Soldiers

Stealth technology, the idea of reducing the ability of the enemy to detect an object, has driven advances in military research for decades. Today, aircraft, naval ships and submarines, missiles and satellites are often covered with radar-absorbent material, such as paint, to hide or cloak them from radar, sonar, infrared and other detection methods. A […]

Switching Modalities Mid-Term to High-Quality Online Leads to Similar Learning Outcomes

Switching Modalities Mid-Term to High-Quality Online Leads to Similar Learning Outcomes

Students who switch from face-to-face teaching to high-quality online even within a semester show similar learning outcomes – yet overall prefer the online setting, a new study has found. This spring, when the COVID-19 outbreak forced the University of Missouri and other institutions of higher education to move all courses to digital learning (fully online […]
