MU’s College of Engineering has not one, but two faculty members whose companies were honored as R&D 100 finalists, an international recognition given to only 100 companies worldwide.
Christian Boschert and Joshua Jacobsen became the first two University of Missouri students to receive awards through the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Power & Energy Society Scholarship Plus Initiative.
Associate professor Chanwoo Park joined the MU College of Engineering’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department in September. He was the recipient of the National Science Foundation’s prestigious CAREER award in 2014.
As an undergrad, Jian “Javen” Lin had every intention to go into industry after completing his doctorate. Instead, he discovered a passion for research and decided to continue in academia.
MU researchers have taken note of the keen interest in energy efficiency in the business and construction. As a result, consortium of six campus energy initiatives has come together as the Midwest Energy Efficiency Research Consortium (MEERC).
Engineering encompasses a wide array of fields and disciplines, and while the majors offered to undergraduates help to define fields of study, sometimes a little extra attention in the way of a minor can help students expand a chosen field into a research breakthrough or a career. That’s the intent of three new minors offered […]
Galen Suppes, J.C. Dowell Professor in chemical engineering, has developed and demonstrated a new “convection battery” that is a giant step toward allowing electric vehicles to replace those dependent on petroleum. The battery uses a pump, similar to a radiator pump in an automobile, to increase power output of batteries. “Improved battery technology is the single […]
The newest face among the chemical engineering faculty in the University of Missouri College of Engineering is no stranger to academia. Associate Professor Yangchuan Xing joined Mizzou Engineering after 10 years at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Xing brings with him his current research, which focuses on energy conversion and storage. The project […]
Three teams of MU civil engineering students received top-tier placements for their paper proposals in the 2011 FAA Design Competition last June. The students spent a semester preparing for the competition in Carlos Sun’s Fall 2010 Airport Engineering course with the end goal of submitting a design project of their choice to compete in the […]
As members of a carbon resource dependent culture gazing into our uncertain energy future, we are daily inundated with stories on topics of high fuel prices, pollution, global warming and energy alternatives that are less than economically feasible or that might even be socially irresponsible. But William “Bill” Jacoby, an associate professor of biological engineering […]
