Within the MU College of Engineering, 12 areas of collaborative research have been designated as research centers. Faculty members in the Computer Science Department direct three of the college’s centers.
In June 2011, the University of Missouri learned its proposal to work with the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation through its Transitional Partnership Award Program was approved. The accompanying five-year grant agreement provided MU with $5 million, funding intended to serve as a bridge between biomedical research innovations on the MU campus and their introductions into […]
“Shocked,” “excited” and “happy” are some of the words five University of Missouri College of Engineering seniors used to describe their reactions upon finding out they’d received fellowships from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). For the five students — three biological engineers, one computer science engineer and one electrical engineer — […]
Most engineering students interested in research know that getting a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) internship is an important step forward. When Jimmy Winkelmann started to make plans for his last summer before senior year, he applied to several REUs in the field of biomedical optics. He was accepted to only one — the HST-Wellman […]
