EECS Student Wins People’s Choice Award at 3MT® Competition

A Mizzou Engineer took home the People’s Choice award at this year’s 3MT® competition sponsored by the University of Missouri Graduate School. Anup Mishra, a PhD candidate in electrical engineering and computer science, presented a three-minute thesis on creating personalized alerts to reduce alarm fatigue using machine learning techniques in health care settings.


Kauffman Scholar Success at Mizzou

Justina Wilkins believed attending college was essential, even in 6th grade when selected as a Kauffman Scholar. She knew her hard work would pay off once she went to college. Wilkins, an industrial and manufacturing systems engineering (IMSE) student, credits the Kauffman Scholars Foundation for her academic success prior to and during her college career at Mizzou.

Undecided Major Finds Fit in IT Program

Andy Schuster wasn’t sure what he wanted to major in when he transferred to Mizzou from a community college. But he was sure about a few things. Schuster has always been fascinated by the way things work. He likes to tinker with stuff. And he learns best by doing. So when he discovered the Information Technology (IT) Program at Mizzou Engineering, it was a perfect fit.
