An All-American Engineer

An All-American Engineer

  Daniel Hein, a senior in mechanical and aerospace engineering, made Mizzou history this past academic year. He was named to his second consecutive Academic All-America® Men’s Division I At-Large First Team. He became the first Mizzou swimmer and only the fifth Mizzou student-athlete to achieve this distinction. Hein has been successful in the water […]

Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

In the future, a durable coating could help keep food-contact surfaces clean in the food processing industry, including in meat processing plants. A new study from a team of University of Missouri engineers and food scientists demonstrates that the coating — made from titanium dioxide — is capable of eliminating foodborne germs, such as salmonella […]

Improving the Performance of UAVs

Improving the Performance of UAVs

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are a major tool in the current arsenal for the U.S. military. They are used ever increasingly for a variety of missions to help keep personnel out of harm’s way. A UAV must perform well in all environmental conditions, powered by a reliable internal combustion engine and/or electric propulsion. However, the […]
