Mizzou Engineering Spring 2024 Career Fair

Mizzou Engineers connect with employers, find careers and internships at spring career fair

Over 870 students spoke with 470 employer representatives at the Mizzou Engineering Spring 2024 Career Fair. Engineers in all stages in their professional journey, whether they were looking to explore career options or to land interviews for summer internships and post-graduation jobs, converged at Mizzou Recreation Complex. Students at the career fair shared why they attended and described their dream career in engineering. Hear from ten of them.

Co-Chairs discuss new events and memories ahead of Engineers’ Week 2024

This spring, engineering students at Mizzou will follow the gold brick road to celebrate Engineers’ Week 2024: The Engineer of St. Patrick. E-Week is organized by St. Pat’s Board and Engineers’ Club, which are led this year by seniors Jimmy Keating and Madi Robinson. We asked them to tell us a little about themselves, the tradition and what the College can expect for this year’s festivities.

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.

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.
