Engineering trio part of leadership team for new AAU grant

The University of Missouri is one of 12 universities to receive a grant from the Association of American Universities (AAU) to further existing efforts to improve undergraduate education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Not even the sky’s the limit for mechanical engineer

Let’s face it: most little kids don’t dream of becoming engineers. They want to be firefighters and princesses and astronauts. Maybe the little boy inside Tyler Chlapek is still calling the shots. The senior mechanical engineering major was recently awarded a summer fellowship with the Center for Space Nuclear Research (CSNR). “To be honest, I […]

Mizzou Engineering graduate student selected for NASA summer program

Dario Cersosimo has always had an interest in space exploration. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the University of Missouri mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate student began his summer vacation with research and weekly phone conferences in preparation for the 21st NASA Planetary Science Summer School held August 3-7 at the NASA Jet Propulsion […]

Bringing home the future of space travel

The next generation of NASA spacecraft aiming to return Americans to the moon is safer and less complicated to operate than today’s space shuttle system, Mizzou Engineering Professor Craig Kluever told space travel enthusiasts during a weekly public lecture series. “I think the driving force is that it’s so much safer,” said Kluever, who worked […]

Fostering everyday engineering education

Three Mizzou Engineering faculty members are being featured in a campuswide campaign to increase public understanding and support for science. This semester’s Saturday Morning Science (SMS) Series line-up includes Ye Duan, a computer science assistant professor; Craig Kluever, a mechanical and aerospace engineering professor; and Marjorie Skubic, an associate professor in electrical and computer engineering […]

Mizzou Engineering professor earns association recognition

Mizzou Engineering Professor Craig Kluever will be honored next month by America’s premier space science and exploration association for his contributions to the field. Kluever, a mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, has been named a “fellow” by the American Astronautical Society (AAS). The Virginia-based association will officially recognize its four new “fellows” during a national […]

Mizzou software mapping paths to the planets

A NASA probe’s flight to Mars may well seem a daunting undertaking to those who remember America’s initial efforts to send men to the moon. Yet from Mizzou Engineering Professor Craig Kluever’s perspective, the current Mars mission is relatively straightforward. It’s NASA’s Messenger spacecraft, on its way now to Mercury using planetary gravity to guide […]

Student aeronautics team takes off

The College of Engineering’s newest design team is entering competition this month with a preliminary victory already under its belt. Mizzou revived a dormant chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) last fall, revitalizing a group that had been inactive for about 10 years. The group’s members entered a design proposal in […]
