Clean energy may mean less mining for coal, but it also means opening or expanding mines to unearth minerals such as cobalt for use in alloys and batteries, tellurium for solar cells and semiconductors, and germanium for transistors in electronic devices. That’s according to Dr. Michael Moats, professor and interim chair of materials science and engineering at Missouri S&T, who says reducing carbon emissions from energy systems in the United States will increase the need for metal production by two to six times per kilowatt of energy production.Read More »

As a boy, Dr. Joseph Newkirk was fascinated by artwork that depicted a sleek, space-age future of flying cars and robotic servants – the stuff of TV shows like The Jetsons. Today, Newkirk is still fascinated by a space-age future. But the Missouri S&T professor of metallurgical engineering isn’t dreaming about George Jetson’s speedy spacecraft. Instead, he’s thinking about what future materials will be needed to transport people to Mars or make robots stronger.Read More »

As a Ph.D. student at Missouri University of Science and Technology, metallurgical engineer Martin Perez dove deep into studying the effects of molten metal corrosion and the use of alloy powders in alkaline batteries.
But when Perez returns to S&T next week to deliver the ninth annual Dr. Thomas J. O’Keefe Lecture, expect very little discussion about powder metallurgy. Instead, the guest lecturer plans to focus on what he calls the “secret to innovation: applied imagination.”

A Missouri S&T professor known for both his teaching acumen and research portfolio has been named an ASM International fellow, a top honor in materials science and engineering.
Dr. David Van Aken, a Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor of metallurgical engineering, is one of 18 inductees in the professional society’s 2017 class of fellows. The new members will be formally recognized at an Oct. 10 awards dinner in conjunction with the Materials Science & Technology 2017 annual conference in Pittsburgh.
