MAE gains CAREER award-earning research with new faculty member

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.

New engineering minors expand opportunities for undergraduates

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 […]

Research shows new battery to have reduced costs, charge times

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 […]

New faculty member continues work into advanced lithium battery research

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 […]

Civil Engineering students score high at 2011 FAA Design Competition

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 […]

Under pressure and in hot water: biomass to gas

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 […]

Undergraduate researcher launches wind-powered energy project on campus

A quick view of Engineering Building North from Sixth Street  will show you a small wind turbine on the building’s roof — in place since July 5 — the first of its kind on the MU campus. But this seemingly simple metal pole with propellers signifies more than meets the eye. For senior mechanical engineering […]
