Mining engineering students at Missouri University of Science and Technology have been “haunting” S&T’s Experimental Mine Facility every Halloween for 20 years, and this Halloween is no different.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.
Many of the nation’s future engineering and science researchers are preparing for their careers in the laboratories of Missouri University of Science and Technology, thanks to more than $2.2 million in federal funding through a program designed to encourage more students to pursue Ph.D.s in those fields.Read More »
As a doctoral student in mining engineering, Kenneth Bansah works, learns and lives nearly 10,000 miles from his boyhood home of Tarkwa, Ghana, a gold mining hub in western Africa. But even as he fine-tunes his dissertation on mitigating sinkhole hazards and other karst formations − and takes care of three children ages four and under while his wife completes her own graduate studies in Michigan – the subsistence gold miners of Ghana are never far from Bansah’s mind.Read More »
With 50,000 new employees needed in the mining industry by 2019, and 3.5 million manufacturing jobs expected over the next decade, The Doe Run Co. understands the importance of educating the next generation of the workforce. The company recently donated $40,000 to Missouri University of Science and Technology toward the purchase of an X-ray fluorescence (XRF) Spectrometer for its geology, mining and metallurgical engineering programs.Read More »
A Missouri University of Science and Technology researcher is part of a national group looking at ways to keep miners — especially underground coal miners — safe.
Dr. Braden Lusk, professor and chair of mining and nuclear engineering at Missouri S&T, is on the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee to study occupational exposure to respirable coal mine dust in underground mines.Read More »
