MUVR: shaping tomorrow’s innovators
MU students are harnessing the virtual to train for reality. Austin Barr is working with his fellow IT and computer science majors to raise awareness of the University of Missouri’s Virtual Reality Organization (MUVR) across campus and open the club and the Collaborative Research Environments for Extended Reality (CREXR) Lab to students from all disciplines.
Mechanical engineering students develop airbrake system as part of capstone
Learn more about one mechanical engineering capstone project, during which students worked with their client, Mizzou Space Program, to develop an airbrake system to improve accuracy of rocket flight altitudes.
Information technology students delve into web design with capstone project
The information technology capstone group set out to develop a degree audit program. Right now, IT degree audits can be a little daunting as students have numerous options to take electives around web and mobile app development, media technology, programming and cybersecurity. However, before they can proceed to advanced-level courses, students have to know which prerequisite courses are required.
Industrial engineering students reconfigure workflow layout for local manufacturing facility
For their capstone course, students studying industrial engineering work with a client to develop a solution to an engineering problem. This fall, one group was assigned to work with American Air Filter (AAF) to reconfigure their production layout for one of the company’s products.
Civil engineering students design walking trail as part of capstone project
This fall, one capstone group is working on designing a potential path for the Hinkson Creek Trail to propose to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and City of Columbia Parks and Recreation.
Chemical engineering students complete AIChE student design challenge for capstone project
Each semester, chemical engineering capstone students complete the American Institute of Chemical Engineers Student Design Competition. The competition is held in the spring, so students in fall capstone courses solve a prior year’s challenge. This fall, students completed a challenge first released for the 2020-2021 academic year, for which they acted as a consulting firm working with a plant in Iraq to retrofit a toppings refinery in order to comply with environmental regulations.
Biological and biomedical engineering students redesign manufacturing process for vocal implant
This fall, one biological and biomedical engineering capstone group documented their project working with a surgeon to redesign the manufacturing process for a type of medical implant, showcasing another example of how a Mizzou Engineering education prepares students for their careers.
