As part of Engineers Without Borders, the MU chapter traveled to Majé de Chimán, Panama, as part of their continued efforts to provide a reliable water distribution, filtration and storage system for the community there.
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 […]
All of those fans packing Memorial Stadium each Saturday inevitably leave a bit of trash behind, and MU Engineering researchers recently completed a study into how that waste can be managed in a sustainable manner.
The Trauths —mother/ Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Kate and daughter/recent MU Civil and Environmental Engineering Department alumna Ginny — recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps grant to support development of an improved method of storm-water redistribution.
The MU College of Engineering’s drive to educate future generations of engineering leaders isn’t contained solely to college students. Maria Fidalgo’s lab has been giving students from Rock Bridge High School in Columbia the chance to work on meaningful environmental engineering projects for the last three years.
A two-pronged robotic system pioneered by University of Missouri researchers, including the College of Engineering’s Gui DeSouza, is changing the way scientists study crops and plant phenotyping.
The first-ever AOI Sensing Symposium was a unique example of what is possible when industry, research and education collide in search of engineering solutions for critically important global challenges.
Researchers at the University of Missouri, including members of the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department, identified the most efficient ways states can partner to maximize renewable energy and cut carbon emissions.
Baolin Deng, C.W. LaPierre Professor of civil and environmental engineering, will serve on the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board’s Drinking Water Committee until 2018. He’ll also serve on a task force to update the Missouri Water Plan, an effort being undertaken by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Silver nanoparticles have a wide array of uses, one of which is to treat drinking water for harmful bacteria and viruses. But do silver nanoparticles also kill off potentially beneficial bacteria or cause other harmful effects to water-based ecosystems? A new paper from a team of University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers says that’s not the case.
