Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology recently worked with The Boeing Company to establish a new nondestructive evaluation laboratory that uses millimeter wave technology to improve the detection of potential flaws in coatings, surfaces and materials. [Read more…]
Boeing Day at Missouri University of Science and Technology is set for Monday, Sept. 13. Representatives from Boeing will be on campus to discuss career opportunities with students and accept resumes for full-time, intern and cooperative positions.
The Boeing Co. has donated $150,000 to the University of Missouri-Rolla to support the university’s work to introduce engineering to Missouri’s middle and high schools.
Researchers at the University of Missouri-Rolla are helping to develop a two-layer, chromate-free coating system to protect military equipment, especially aircraft, from corrosion. The two layers consist of a non-chromate conversion coating and self-priming ultra-violet light materials.
With its autoclave now installed, the University of Missouri-Rolla is ready to help aerospace businesses produce intricate prototypes and sub-scale, but complex, composite parts.
The entire fleet of F-15s in the U.S. Air Force is getting primed for future flights, thanks to chrome-free inhibitor technology originally developed at the University of Missouri-Rolla.
Dr. Matt O’Keefe, associate professor of materials science and engineering at UMR, is testing solder joints to find out how lead (tin-lead) and lead-free (tin-silver-copper) solders compare. His work is in collaboration with Boeing-Phantom Works, Northrop Grumman, Air Force Research Laboratory and the Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies (CAMT), which is housed at UMR.
Mechanical and aerospace engineering students at the University of Missouri-Rolla can now make large, complex composite parts for research and student design and competition projects, thanks to the efforts of a UMR alumnus who helped secure a recent donation of an autoclave from Boeing for the department.
UMR’s Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies (CAMT) will receive an additional $3.5 million in federal funds for the coming year, U.S. Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) announced Wednesday during a visit to the UMR campus.
