Solutions to big challenges worth exploring happen beyond the surface.
Our faculty and graduate researchers dive into the unknown to make life-changing discoveries and in the process become experts in fields that might not even exist yet, on Earth and beyond.
There’s a lot about 2020 that many of us would rather forget. Despite the challenges resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, Missouri S&T researchers advanced the frontiers of technical, scientific and scholarly discovery in many ways in 2020. Here are 20 examples.
Researchers in materials science, chemistry, physics, biomedicine and other disciplines will have expanded capabilities with the addition of $6 million in the latest equipment at Missouri S&T. The equipment is available for researchers across the University of Missouri System, which includes S&T and the campuses in Columbia, Kansas City and St. Louis, as well as external users from companies and other institutions.
Three researchers from Missouri S&T are part of a nationwide collaboration to synthesize inexpensive materials hard enough to literally stir two pieces of steel together and create some of the hardest materials ever produced.
At least 17 million residents of the United States lack access to high-speed internet, impeding their ability to use online education, telemedicine and remote work. Dr. Casey Canfield, assistant professor of engineering management and systems engineering at Missouri S&T, is leading a team of experts working to solve the challenge, and now their work is supported by a one-year, $300,000 grant award as part of U.S. Ignite’s Project OVERCOME.
