To select this year’s honorees, Dean Elizabeth Loboa sought recommendations from the College’s Dean’s Council for Teaching Excellence and Dean’s Council for Research Excellence.
Defense using pretense: MU Engineering team sets new cybersecurity paradigm
Instead of simply reacting to cyberattacks after they happen, Mizzou Engineering researchers developed a new approach — cyber “defense using pretense.”
Studying behavior could lead to sustainability solutions
At first blush, Damon Hall’s office looks somewhat out of place. Tucked in the Natural Resources Building, his shelves are lined with the kind of reading material seemingly more suited for psychology or sociology. Looks, however, can be deceiving.
Going global pays off for Mizzou Engineering alum Garrow
If you want an example of how studying abroad can expand horizons and provide students with global experience that employers desire, take Mizzou Engineering alumna Carly Garrow.
A different kind of winter break
Over winter break, 24 Engineering students traveled to a variety of destinations in the U.S. or the Dominican Republic to do work on volunteer service projects.
Assistant dean, STEM colleagues land grant to study identity expression
Identifying and understanding contextual, cultural and developmental differences among identity expression for historically underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is key in supporting and growing these populations in STEM fields.
Mizzou team shines at computational protein prediction competition
Accurately predicting how protein sequences will fold into 3D structures is key to determining their biological function and essential in areas such as protein design, protein engineering, drug design, disease research, and precision medicine. MU Engineering William and Nancy Thompson Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Jianlin Cheng and his MULTICOM team are at the forefront of this nascent field, with the accolades to match.
MU Engineering professor helps solidify new bridge inspection standards
Mizzou Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Glenn Washer has long been a proponent of more common-sense, risk-based federal bridge inspection standards, and he’s done the research to back them up. And now, those standards have become federal policy.
New international director brings global experience to role
Cassandra Siela is no stranger to travel. And she’s bringing her extensive experience to Mizzou Engineering as its new International Director.
Mertens brings love of Mizzou, helping students to College of Engineering
Laura Mertens was born and raised in Columbia and is a Mizzou alumna, and she’s bringing that love for her hometown and alma mater to Mizzou Engineering as its new Director of Enrollment Management.
