Dan Batliner earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Mizzou in 1992, then spent the bulk of his career as a consultant in the water treatment industry. When an opportunity arose to become the co-owner of his own ethanol production plant, he took it. Actually, “ethanol production plant” isn’t 100 percent accurate. Much of […]
Understanding ribonucleic acid (RNA) and its chemical properties and biological mechanisms is a key area of focus in health research. RNA is critical in the processing and movement of genetic information and gene expression. The way RNA folds into various tertiary structures determines its biological function, and being able to dissect and alter that process […]
A total of 10 student teams made up of participants in Mizzou Engineering’s Freshmen Interest Groups (FIGs) gave presentations in an attempt to take top honors in December’s Engineering Olympics. Out of those ten teams, the top honors ended up going to the team of Anna Merkel, Samantha Sample and Justin Lannin. This year’s edition […]
University of Missouri capstone courses are the culmination of years of undergraduate education, a chance for graduating seniors to bring the fruits of their labor to bear in one final course. Mizzou Engineering puts a twist on its capstone courses, frequently partnering with outside clients to give students the opportunity to tackle real-world problems. Take […]
SPIE granted a Optics and Photonics Education Scholarships to MU Bioengineering graduate student Mason Schellenberg in recognition of his research work and in support of his future goals.
Martha Gahl, an electrical engineering major, recently was accepted to participate in a summer program with the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition in Pittsburgh.
Carly Garrow will work with Felix Nickel of Universität Heidelberg, whose research specializes in laparoscopic surgery, during a 10-month fellowship sponsored by the Whitaker International Program.
Mizzou engineering students captured several accolades at the University of Missouri’s 2017 Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievement’s Forum in April.
Sarah Gebken recently was accepted to a 10-week Research Experience for Undergraduates program at prestigious Johns Hopkins University, and she’ll be spending her summer in Baltimore working in the classroom and the lab on a cutting-edge bioengineering project.
