Taking the bite out of dentistry

Dental phobias could soon lose much of their bite if a Mizzou Engineering research team succeeds in its efforts to develop a low-temperature plasma brush that could replace conventional dentist drills. Qingsong Yu and Hao Li, assistant professors in mechanical and aerospace engineering, are leading a multicampus university research team that has received a $270,000 […]

College of Engineering researchers aim to deter bridge terrorism

Government officials have long acknowledged America’s vulnerability to terrorist attacks on the national transportation system. Backed by federal funding, Mizzou Engineering researchers are coming up with ways to protect against such attacks. Sam Kiger, an MU civil and environmental engineering professor who has focused throughout his career on designing structures to withstand explosions, is leading […]

Dominic Ho’s research receives U.S. Army recognition

Dominic Ho, a University of Missouri associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been recognized by a U.S. Army official for his work on developing a remote–controlled landmine detector. Ho has been working for several years with the Army, private defense contractors and researchers from the University of Florida and Duke University to come […]

Advancing nanotechnology research

C. W. LaPierre Chair and Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay gave an overview of research under way at the College of Engineering’s Center for Nano- and Micro-Electromechanical Systems and Nanotechnology as well as its goals during the center’s dedication on April 7. Gangopadhyay, an electrical and computer engineer, heads the college’s work on highly miniaturized technology that […]

Ice sheets becoming a hot topic

Rising sea levels are probably the most serious effect of global warming, and have already displaced portions of the world’s population, an MU College of Engineering professor warned Wednesday. “These effects are not in the future; these effects are happening now,” said Curt Davis, an electrical and computer engineering professor whose research focuses on ice […]

CoE working to lighten the military’s load

The high–tech American soldier—equipped with computers, radios and night–vision goggles—is by now a familiar figure. Less well–known is the physical and logistical burden the electronic equipment represents. Soldiers already are laden with tens of pounds of batteries to provide power for all the electronic devices and weaponry so prominent on today’s battlefield, and the military’s […]

CoE fortifies educational and research leadership through new faculty members

Two new faculty members have joined the MU College of Engineering, strengthening the college’s education force while fortifying its foundations for groundbreaking research. Zhiqiang Hu, a wastewater treatment expert, started work last August as an assistant professor in the CoE’s civil and environmental engineering department. Nam–Jung Kim, a nanotechnology researcher, became the CoE mechanical and […]

CoE researcher seeks to shine light on autism diagnoses

Autism is widely known as a source of national crisis, a developmental disorder striking the lives of an increasing number of American families. But autism’s causes are still uncertain and its symptoms widely variable. Even autism’s diagnosis is grounded in behavioral evaluations rather than objective physical tests. Gang Yao, a University of Missouri–Columbia biological engineering […]

College of Engineering selected to run regional energy conservation center

Greater economic prosperity may be as close as the nearest light bulb for many Midwestern manufacturers. So says MU’s new Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) team, one of only 26 centers across the nation recently selected and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The MU center, run by the CoE Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering […]

CoE researchers receive funding for sensitive cancer detection devices

Two MU College of Engineering researchers working on tabletop cancer detection devices will receive $470,000 from a private foundation dedicated to accelerating the development of new medical technologies. Xudong Fan and John Viator, both assistant biological engineering professors, have each won grants from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, a Florida–based not–for–profit foundation that supports biomedical […]
