The University of Missouri’s six week-long King Abdulaziz University Internship for Engineering Students saw 24 students from King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, come to Columbia to learn and work on real-world engineering projects.
The Mizzou Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Team pulled out a 14th place overall finish out of 33 teams at the Association For Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Student Unmanned Air Systems competition.
The MU Coulter Translational Partnership Program in September announced funding for six biomedical research projects, each a collaborative effort by an engineer and a physician.
A team of researchers aims to create an easily inserted and withdrawn device to block any debris from reaching the brain during aortic valve replacement surgery.
Capstone: the high point; crowning achievement. For Mizzou Engineering seniors, as well as the thousands of students on the MU campus, it’s a word that signifies the end of the road, a final achievement in an undergraduate career, and sometimes the project that opens doors to the future. Senior Capstone Design projects aim to find […]
Sherif El-Gizawy has been a mechanical engineer and professor for more than 30 years, and for the past 23 of them he has taught and conducted research in his area of expertise — design and manufacturing — at the University of Missouri. Much of the research that he and his students have tackled has been […]
James Berlin’s senior year in mechanical and aerospace engineering was a busy one. In addition to his 18-hour course load and the 600 hours he spent on his capstone project, he served as captain of the Basic Utility Vehicle Team, which took second place at this year’s competition. In April, he also won the award […]
Josh Arnone and mechanical engineering professor Sherif El-Gizawy have worked together since 2007 when Arnone was starting work on his doctorate. Their initial research involved one of El-Gizawy’s Boeing-funded projects that involved the investigation of a rapid manufacturing technique using a novel plastic and its possible use in aircraft production. Even as they labored to […]
A Mizzou Engineering professor is working to refine an advanced manufacturing technique that may make conventional aircraft assembly lines a thing of the past. A. Sherif El-Gizawy, a mechanical and aerospace engineering faculty member, has received nearly $88,000 from The Boeing Co. to adapt an advanced manufacturing technique for its use in aircraft production. The […]
