When Destinee Rea began looking at colleges, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in the STEM field. The problem? She had no idea which one. Drawn to S&T because of her interest in science and engineering and the flexibility it offered through the freshman engineering program, she says her decision was finalized when she […]Read More »
The power plant of the future could be smaller, highly efficient and even portable, and researchers at Missouri S&T could play a key role in making this transformation happen.
Missouri S&T recently received a $1.45 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to develop more efficient heat exchangers for energy production. Heat exchangers are devices used to transfer heat between two or more fluids and are commonly used in systems such as chemical plants, petroleum refineries, and refrigeration and air-conditioning systems.Read More »
Dr. Gregory E. Hilmas, a ceramic engineer and leading expert in methods to create more durable, next-generation materials, has been named chair of materials science and engineering at Missouri S&T.
The Curators’ Distinguished Professor of ceramic engineering has served as interim department chair since July 2017. He succeeds Dr. Matthew J. O’Keefe, executive director of the Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence at the University of Mississippi

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.Read More »
