Once doubtful of his engineering abilities, Toler now soaring to the stars
As a freshman, Toler avoided engineering out of fear that it would be too difficult, but quickly discovered that what he was afraid was also what he enjoyed most.
HVAC technician-turned transfer student reaping benefits of Mizzou experience
Emily Unterschutz was a full-time HVAC technician earning a good salary when she decided to return to school and invest in a bachelor’s degree. It was scary and intimidating, she admits — but three months into the mechanical engineering program, she’s thriving.
Engineers to use autonomous tractor to study self-driving mechanisms
Two Mizzou Engineers are using Missouri’s first autonomous tractor to better understand self-driving mechanisms and how those systems can work with other technologies. Professors Prasad Calyam and Ming Xin are co-Principal Investigators on a Department of Agriculture grant that brought the tractor to Mizzou last month. Calyam is Greg L. Gilliom Professor of Cyber Security in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and Xin is Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
