Alaaeldin Elsisi and Hesham El-Emam participated in the GEM-ASEE Doctoral Engineering Research Showcase, hosted by the American Society for Engineering Education, on Jan. 22 and 23 in Washington, D.C. The Showcase is a unique event which invites “doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and new faculty to display their leading-edge technical research and connect with potential agency sponsors […]
A total of 10 student teams made up of participants in Mizzou Engineering’s Freshmen Interest Groups (FIGs) gave presentations in an attempt to take top honors in December’s Engineering Olympics. Out of those ten teams, the top honors ended up going to the team of Anna Merkel, Samantha Sample and Justin Lannin. This year’s edition […]
Hani Salim, associate dean of academic programs and C.W. LaPierre Professor of civil and environmental engineering, will be one of four participants from MU in the Southeastern Conference Academic Leadership Development Program.
Elizabeth Loboa, the dean of the College of Engineering, recently announced the appointment of three faculty members to new leadership positions — Sheila Grant, Hani Salim and Cerry Klein. Associate Dean Steve Devlin also will continue in his role.
Retiring MU Civil and Environmental Engineering C.W LaPierre Professor Sam Kiger’s list of career accomplishments includes projects with the highest levels of security in the country.
After an earthquake devastated Peru in 2007, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) selected and funded a University of Missouri team of researchers to evaluate the condition of 40 school and university buildings. Ahmed Ibrahim, a doctoral candidate in civil engineering, was one of three students selected to take part in the […]
An engineering career in which explosives play a key role, even if the work involves minimizing their destructive impact, is the stuff that fuels most boys’ dreams: the noise, the percussion, the fire and smoke. And though Hani Salim’s work in blast retrofit and explosion-resistant design of structures is just such a dream come true, […]
Wooden bridges have largely gone the way of horse drawn carriages, both replaced with innovations arising from the industrial revolution, though arguably a better case can be made for a car in every garage than for a span of cold steel over every stream. Just ask the folks at Southwest Mississippi Resource Conservation and Development, […]
Government officials have long acknowledged America’s vulnerability to terrorist attacks on the national transportation system. Backed by federal funding, Mizzou Engineering researchers are coming up with ways to protect against such attacks. Sam Kiger, an MU civil and environmental engineering professor who has focused throughout his career on designing structures to withstand explosions, is leading […]
