Industry Sponsored Consortia hold great potential to further MU Engineering’s research mission and help create opportunities for faculty and students to interact with industry research partners on significant problems facing the world.
Recent University of Missouri research sponsored by the National Science Foundation titled “A Networked Virtual Reality Platform for Immersive Online Social Learning of Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders” (NSF CNS-1647213) has been focused on understanding the benefits in the use of virtual reality to aid the special education of students with autism.
The Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department had another busy summer, hosting its National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates: Undergraduate Research in Consumer Networking Technologies and Summers@Mizzou Hacker Trackers program.
This past 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.
Posters covering a wide array research topics and more filled a large room near the College’s library in the late afternoon, followed by four brief TED-style talks on subjects related to each of Mizzou Engineering’s four Pillars of Pursuit.
The highlight of the week for the Mizzou contingent was finishing second in the Student Cyber Challenge, coming in just slightly behind the University of Alabama team. The team earned high marks for their project, “Compartmentalized and Extensible Security Framework for Securing Pre-Existing Systems.”
Prasad Calyam, assistant professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, recently completed a trip to India, where he gave a presentation on cyber defense of distributed denial of service attacks on cloud computing systems at the 19th annual ACM International Conference on Distributed Computing and Networking. While there, he also visited Amrita University, where […]
Prasad Calyam won the Graduate & Professional Teaching Award, and Heather Hunt took home top honors in the Undergraduate Teaching category in this year’s Excellence in Teaching with Technology Awards.
The University of Missouri is already doing groundbreaking work in pairing Big Data experts with clinical and life science practitioners in order to produce cutting-edge results out of the wealth of data the latter groups create with their research. And a group of College of Engineering researchers is looking to expand collaborative efforts even further.
The MU College of Engineering’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) recently wrapped up its 10-week summer session, with brilliant students from around the country completing work on cutting-edge computer science projects.
