A team of students at Missouri University of Science and Technology spent two years designing and building a solar-powered house filled with smart-living technology. Once it was complete, the students cut it into pieces and shipped it to California on four semitrailers to compete in an international building competition.
The Missouri University of Science and Technology University and Community Symphony Orchestra and the Missouri S&T Chamber Orchestra will perform in a fall concert on the S&T campus this October.
Missouri University of Science and Technology researchers are working to build a framework to study the online behavior of Internet users and how that behavior affects the safety of systems and networks.
Dr. Maggie Cheng, associate professor of computer science at Missouri S&T, and Dr. Fiona Nah, professor of business and information technology at Missouri S&T, are working with a two-year grant from the National Science Foundation. The researchers are looking to design experiments to study the characteristics of user behavior, Cheng says, creating a theoretical framework to study human cyber behavior. [Read more…]
Missouri University of Science and Technology researchers are working to develop cyber additive manufacturing technology to create new metal materials that are stronger and lighter than conventional ones, which could make manufacturing more efficient and cheaper. The cyber manufacturing technology includes additive manufacturing process modeling, sensor network and seamless process integration.
Dr. Frank Liou, the Michael and Joyce Bytnar Professor of Product Innovation and Creativity at Missouri S&T, and Dr. Jagannanthan Sarangapani, the William A. Rutledge-Emerson Electrical Co. Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Missouri S&T, are developing cyber manufacturing technology for 3-D printers to create materials not currently in existence.

As the first year of operation closes for Missouri University of Science and Technology’s geothermal energy system, university officials announce that the system has exceeded its projected campus impact.
Missouri S&T’s geothermal energy system, which allows energy to be stored in and reclaimed from well fields located throughout the campus, provides heating and cooling to 17 buildings on campus and chilled water to the majority of campus buildings. It consists of four separate plants that distribute energy from the system to different parts of campus. [Read more…]
