Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality
Students unable to attend in-person classes in the future could still get the full classroom experience, thanks to emerging virtual environment technologies. Fang Wang—an assistant teaching professor in the Information Technology program—is testing out such concepts this semester in her virtual reality class.
Students Create and Innovate at International MIT Reality Hack

Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool
Science has already allowed us to map the human genome – one of the biggest scientific achievements of our lifetimes. But to really take that achievement to the next level and use it to improve precision health and medicine, we need accurate 3D models to study chromosomes in great detail. A Mizzou Engineering researcher and his team have designed a tool to do just that.
Internship Success: Parker, Sample grow at Google
MU Electrical Engineering & Computer Science juniors Rebecca Parker and Samantha Sample maximized their engineering and leadership skills this summer, landing engineering practicum internships with Google, working out of the San Francisco offices. Learn a little more about their internship in their own words.
Panacea’s Cloud ready for prime time
Real-time data and information sharing is critical for first responders, especially in situations that don’t allow for ready-made internet access. And after years of research supported by the Coulter Translational Partnership (TP) Program and the National Science Foundation, coupled with a recent market research, an interdisciplinary Mizzou team has the solution.
Mizzou Engineering team building cloud computing ‘blueprints’
Many companies and researchers need cloud computing resources with various levels of computing power and security capabilities. But in several situations, the needs of similar companies or researchers mirror each other. So instead of taking the time and energy to build from scratch, how can cloud providers help their users build from “blueprints?” Mizzou Engineers have taken a new innovative and massive step toward that goal.
Mizzou Engineering’s Chadha protecting your data, identity
While hacking databases is the main way for interested parties to gain users’ personal information, it’s not the only possibility. Intrepid attackers can use perfectly benign means to do so. How? By using readily available aggregate data — for example: census data, medical data focused on how many people in an area suffer from a specific illness, consumer trend data, etc. — and using it to focus on specific individuals.
