Collaboration unites S&T engineering, Winthrop University fine arts

Posted by on June 20, 2017

When it comes to materials science and engineering, there’s more than a bit of artistry involved. At any given time, its practitioners may tame glass, shape steel or push the boundaries of biomedicine. And those rigid lines dividing creative spontaneity from analytical discipline? They’re often downright blurry, if not overlapping.

Fueling space flight

Posted by on April 18, 2017

It started with a boyhood dream of becoming an astronaut fueled from watching the 1995 Hollywood portrayal of the ill-fated Apollo 13 lunar mission. It ended – or rather, took a detour – after a teenage growth spurt propelled Steven Berg beyond NASA’s 6-foot-4 height limit for space travelers (the Wentzville, Missouri, native now stands 6-foot-7). The federal agency’s loss is Missouri S&T’s gain, as Berg’s fascination with space led to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in aerospace engineering from a campus where he’s now a postdoctoral fellow in the Aerospace Plasma Laboratory under the supervision of associate professor Josh Rovey, his thesis adviser.
