Computer science students from Missouri University of Science and Technology and a 17-state region who study cyber security will have an opportunity this weekend to see their textbook lessons come to life in a competition that simulates the high-stakes work of corporate cyber sleuths.
The Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition (CPTC) challenges student competitors to use their technical knowledge to identify security risks in a fictitious business organization’s computer networks by attempting to infiltrate the network. This type of testing is known as penetration testing.Read More »
Growing interest in explosives technology among both federal investigators and military personnel is prompting Missouri University of Science and Technology to further expand its graduate programs in the field.
The University of Missouri System Board of Curators on Thursday voted to approve a new master of science degree in explosives technology at Missouri S&T. The proposal now awaits final approval by the state Coordinating Board of Higher Education.
Missouri S&T receives federal support for early-stage research into tapping “citizen scientists” to collect water quality data
Picture teams of smartphone-toting citizen scientists, poised to collect water samples and test for contaminants thanks to a user-friendly app that can crowdsource rapid responders to mobilize the next time a public water system is at risk.
Researchers from Missouri University of Science and Technology and the University of South Florida are tapping National Science Foundation seed money set aside for “potentially transformative research” to advance the technology and hone the social mobilization efforts needed to summon trained, trusted teams of everyday water watchers.
Missouri S&T geologist leads $2.1M National Science Foundation research effort to study Earth’s greatest mass extinction
Missouri S&T geologist Dr. Wan Yang has devoted his academic career to unlocking the mysteries of the Permian mass extinction more than 250 million years ago. That geological odyssey now finds him leading an 11-institution consortium that’s been collectively awarded a $2.1 million National Science Foundation research grant.Read More »
