Top student teams take aim at RevCon Challenge

The 4th Annual International Field-Reversible Thermal Connector [RevCon] Challenge, sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency [DARPA], was held Oct. 23 at the Reynolds Journalism Institute and Lafferre Hall on the campus of the University of Missouri.

Study abroad trip offers unique look at nuclear science and technology

The French Alps Nuclear Science and Technology program is a collaboration of the College of Engineering, the MU Research Reactor [MURR], and the College of Arts & Science Physics Department. The goal of showcasing the many applications of nuclear science matched the International Atomic Energy Agency’s “Peaceful Uses Initiative.”

Student teams invited to compete in the RevCon Challenge

On Oct. 31, seven university teams will demonstrate the prototypes of the thermal connectors they’ve designed to judges at the University of Missouri College of Engineering, the hosting agency for the 2014 and 2015 International Field-Reversible Thermal Connector (RevCon) Challenge.

Engineering students earn spots among McNair Scholars, publish research articles in annual journal

Two engineering students are among 18 University of Missouri students named to the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program. Paulos Mengsteab, a senior mechanical engineering student, and Sital Uprety, a junior civil and environmental engineering student, are part of the 2012-13 group, which also includes students majoring in nursing, psychology, forestry, music performance among others.

Team’s proposal earns ‘Most Creative’ prize at RevCon Challenge

Two University of Missouri mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate students traveled to the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) in May to compete in the RevCon Challenge and walked away with the competition’s “Most Creative” prize. Co-sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the challenge […]

Radiopharmaceutical production in the face of nuclear nonproliferation

According to the World Nuclear Association, approximately 90 percent of nuclear medicine procedures conducted worldwide are diagnostic in nature and fully 30 million of them utilize the radioisotope technetium-99m (Tc-99m). More than half of these procedures occur in the United States, and for nearly a decade, there has been an international effort to ensure that […]

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 […]

Mechanical engineering students present research at nuclear conference

Four mechanical engineering students and two faculty members traveled to Washington, D.C., in November to make presentations on their research to American Nuclear Society members at the organization’s annual fall meeting. Conference attendees included members from industry and academia. “It’s an opportunity for these individuals to promote themselves and the work that they’ve been doing,” […]
