You can find engineering in everything — the food you eat, the roads you drive on, the water you drink, the electronic devices you use, the medicine and medical devices that keep you healthy and so much more. Engineers innovate and impact the world in the way few other professions can. At the University of Missouri College of Engineering, world-class faculty conduct cutting-edge research and train not just future engineers, but engineers ready to shape their world for the better the day they graduate. Are you ready to get in?
Pillars of Pursuit
As a world-class, globally renowned engineering leader, we will build upon our strengths in education, research and service. We will inspire and invest in our faculty and students and increase our impact upon the world through the four pillars of pursuit.
In the winter of 1811-12, a series of powerful earthquakes occurred along the New Madrid fault in southeast Missouri. The earthquakes reportedly rang church bells in Boston, Massachusetts, and caused chimneys to fall in Cincinnati, Ohio. Those earthquakes remain the strongest seismic events ever recorded in North America east of the Rocky Mountains. Structural damage […]
The new 3D printers at the University of Missouri College of Engineering have been given colorful nicknames, ranging from the enticing PiquantPelican to the down-and-dirty FreshSlug. The nicknames are fitting, because the printers are cranking out a product that is highly coveted for an unpleasant task — coronavirus testing swabs. Demand exceeds supply for the […]
Professor Bill Ma in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is proposing new electric power technology to support Army operations in 2035. Solar energy is expected to meet the energy demand for a variety of equipment associated with Army multi-domain operations in the future. Ma, who co-authored with Pengtao Wang, presented his white paper […]
As the University of Missouri campuses began preparations to move to remote teaching and telework in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Professor Jim Noble in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) was preparing for the Center for Excellence in Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) spring meeting and research symposium. Noble is the […]
Oliver Giraldo-Londoño has been selected as the College of Engineering’s inaugural James W. and Joan M. O’Neill Faculty Scholar in Engineering. Giraldo-Londoño currently is a PhD candidate at the Georgia Institute of Technology and expects to complete his degree this fall. He received a bachelor’s in civil engineering in 2010 from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, […]
Stealth technology, the idea of reducing the ability of the enemy to detect an object, has driven advances in military research for decades. Today, aircraft, naval ships and submarines, missiles and satellites are often covered with radar-absorbent material, such as paint, to hide or cloak them from radar, sonar, infrared and other detection methods. A […]
