Second Annual Research Day
The Second Annual Research Day was held on April 25, 2019.
At the College of Engineering, research is one of the most important things we do. Events such as this give us a chance to share our work with members of the campus community and the general public through both the poster sessions and keynote speakers. We had an impressive turnout this year; this reflects well on the work of our College!
Our keynote presentations were focused on our four Pillars of Pursuit:
Educating Engineering Leaders
- “Teaching, Practicing and Inspiring Creativity in Engineering Education & Research”
- Dr. Heather Hunt & Dr. Ferris Pfeiffer
Biomedical Innovations and Challenges
- “Guided Nano Warheads: The Latest Precision Weapon in the War against Drug-Resistant Cancer”
- Dr. Raghuraman Kannan
Big Data Analytics and Cloud Computing
The poster session featured 37 posters. Our poster winners earned Amazon gift cards of $200, $150 and $100, respectively. These stellar graduate students are:
- Yan Li (first place): “Titanium Incorporated Hierarchical Structures of Diatom Selectively Removing PPCPs in the Presence of Natural Organic Matter (NOM)”
- Ahmed Jasim (second place): “Nanocoating of Metal Oxides on Carbon Nanotubes as Supports for Fuel Cell Catalysts”
- Yixiang Gao (third place): “Classification of sEMG Signals for the Detection of Vocal Fatigues Based on Vocal Fatigue Index Scores”

A Mizzou alumnus is acting director of the Cyber Development Directorate for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), an agency responsible for building out cyber defense capabilities for the U.S. Department of Defense.
The gift from College of Engineering alumnus Jim Fitterling is one of the first major gifts from an individual donor for the NextGen Precision Health Institute, the capital priority for Mizzou.
Hosted by the College of Engineering, almost 800 scouts from six states came ready to learn and take on challenges in pursuit of merit badges in a variety of areas.
The nascent org is called the Union of Missouri Student Researchers and is currently working toward full recognition as a student organization at the campus level.
