Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a way to control a robot just by moving your hands. What makes the work especially unique is that researchers only used one pair of electrodes on each of a person’s arms to send signals that moved a robotic arm, said Richard Byfield, a third-year PhD student in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department.

Bringing deep learning to materials science: MU team reaches breakthrough

Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms that has a wide array of potential uses, particularly as a candidate material for use in electronic devices, such as LED screens, touch panels, smart phones and solar cells. Graphene’s electrical and optical properties can be significantly altered for better usage. Discovering how these atoms tune to create these properties is one of the most pressing questions in materials science.

Four faculty receive named professorships

Last spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors. To select this year’s honorees, Dean Elizabeth Loboa sought recommendations from the College’s Dean’s Council for Teaching Excellence and Dean’s Council for Research Excellence.
