In 10 years, your cellphone won’t look anything like it does today — at least on the inside. The phones, with 5G technology, will be 10 times faster than they are today. And self-driving cars won’t be a novelty, they will be part of your daily commute.
A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher is working to make those goals a reality — a safe reality — by deciphering and solving the problems of electromagnetic interference inherent in the systems. Dr. Jun Fan, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Missouri S&T, is using a Google grant to provide real-world solutions. [Read more…]
Dr. Steve E. Watkins, professor of electrical engineering and computer engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, is the 2017 president-elect of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), the honor society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. In 2018, he will lead the organization as IEEE-HKN president and will chair the board of governors. [Read more…]
Dr. Mariesa Crow, vice provost for research at Missouri University of Science and Technology and the Fred W. Finley Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, recently received the 2016 IEEE Power and Energy Society Outstanding Engineering Educator Award for “leadership and innovation in electric power engineering education.” [Read more…]
A better way to reliably and comprehensively diagnose lesions caused by cancers, 3-D print flexible metal structures, and propel micro-satellites into space could all be a reality in the near future thanks to research funding from the University of Missouri System.
Life for Joe Stanley could have turned out differently. A string of seemingly unrelated incidents converged in his life to turn a would-be CPA into an award-winning faculty member at Missouri University of Science and Technology. [Read more…]
ROLLA, Mo. — Smart computing has weaved its way into people’s everyday lives, from heathcare to transportation, from security to social media, and Missouri University of Science and Technology is a leader in this growing field. [Read more…]
Missouri University of Science and Technology researchers have developed a real-time, portable and 3-D microwave video camera prototype.
The Missouri S&T team has developed a microwave 3-D video camera that can be used for industrial inspection applications, security screening — and might even one day be used by first responders. Dr. Mohammad Tayeb Ghasr, assistant research professor at Missouri S&T, and Dr. Reza Zoughi, the Schlumberger Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at Missouri S&T, are the lead researchers on the project.
