Benefits of graduate school touted at Engineering Research Open House
Undergraduate students had the opportunity to hear about graduate research projects during the Research Open House. Earning a master’s degree means seeing a significant increase in your earning potential for life, and the payoff is even greater when you complete at Ph.D. In addition to becoming an expert in your field and gaining a competitive edge in the workforce, graduate students also conduct world-changing research.
Engineering team places first, third at inaugural segmentation challenge
A Mizzou Engineering team took first and third place at a new competition aimed to advance methods to not only detect but also trace the 3D shape of a specific type of brain lesion in newborns. The BONBID-HIE Lesion Segmentation Challenge was part of the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2023) and sponsored by Boston Children’s Hospital and its Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging Developmental Science Center and Harvard Medical School.
Mizzou team uses EMG signals to assess movement in osteoarthritis patients
An interdisciplinary research team at Mizzou has demonstrated a way to use non-invasive electromyography, or EMG, signals to assess lower body movements in osteoarthritis patients.
Graduate student to use environmental engineering, data analysis skills at NASA
He grew up in a water-strapped village in Afghanistan, worked as a water engineer who helped similar communities and wants to continue to conduct research around environmental problems while teaching future generations. In the meantime, Jaweed Nazary will spend his summer working at NASA.
Researchers devise new technique to monitor reactor coolant pumps
Nuclear power plants that provide needed electricity rely on reactor coolant pumps for safe, continuous and reliable operations. But if the pump malfunctions, it can take plants offline, requiring costly repairs and interrupting services, or, worse, cause environmental and safety problems. Now, a Mizzou industrial and systems engineering team has devised a new technique to…
Gregory Scholar, data science student studies augmented reality in advertising
Augmented reality (AR) can be an effective tool for brands to engage with consumers, so long as the features are useful, enjoyable and easy to activate. Those were some of Krutika Deshpande’s findings from her recent research project around the use of AR and storytelling by brands. Deshpande — a master’s student in data science and part of an interdisciplinary research program — presented the work at Show Me Research Week last month.
Industrial Engineering students take honors at CELDi Research Symposium
Industrial and systems engineering (ISE) students took top honors for work around intelligent decision-making systems and optimizing manufacturing processes at the annual Center for Excellence in Logistics and Distribution (CELDi) Research Symposium.
