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.
Research found that optimal production levels decreased significantly for items that have a high environmental cost to produce, such as beef, with the environmental cost being calculated in terms of carbon dioxide emissions embodied in the creation of that food product.
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is one state agency that has discovered benefits to a digital transition, and its partnership with the MU Computer Science Department has made that transition smoother.
