A computer science doctoral student and a faculty member from the MU School of Information Science and Learning Technologies paired up to develop an event-based Twitter analyzation software program that is more accurate than existing tools.
For the second consecutive year, MU civil and environmental engineering graduate student Boris Claros came out on top in the 2014 Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) student essay competition.
Glenn Washer, an associate professor in MU’s Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, recently completed a paper with the goal of creating a more risk-based set of standards for how frequently bridges require inspections.
A chemical engineering research team is working to develop a solution to help existing power plants capture and store excess carbon dioxide emissions.
Electrical engineers worked with a computer scientist and a computational biologist to create and utilize a robot that would automatically collect the latter pair’s data for research into maize phenotype mutants.
Researchers in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department have devised a system that creates a toroidal- (or ring-) shaped plasma emission in open atmosphere.
For his graduate work at the State University of New York, Ye Duan explored computer vision, using a camera to record 2D images of stationary objects from different vantage points and using the digital files to construct 3D renderings. When Duan accepted his position in the MU College of Engineering, one of his electrical engineering […]
Efforts to identify greener, more cost-efficient materials to make the polyurethanes used to create foams and plastics has resulted in an expanded use of soybeans and soybean oils. The United Soybean Board (USB) has jumped on the bandwagon, funding research projects across the country that develop the industrial use of soybeans. In particular, they have […]
Soil science is life science. And the geotechnical engineers and soil scientists in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering working to invigorate the University of Missouri’s Soil Characterization Laboratory are enthusiastic about the critical nature of the work they are doing and its potential impact within the State of Missouri and beyond. “Can you […]
According to the World Nuclear Association, approximately 90 percent of nuclear medicine procedures conducted worldwide are diagnostic in nature and fully 30 million of them utilize the radioisotope technetium-99m (Tc-99m). More than half of these procedures occur in the United States, and for nearly a decade, there has been an international effort to ensure that […]
