Football Miners honored by GLFC

Missouri S&T won the Great Lakes Football Conference championship in 2008 and the league’s all-conference team was a reflection of that. The Miners had 13 players chosen for the squad and won six additional awards for their performance.


Ten of the Miners chosen were first-team selections and Miner head coach Kirby Cannon was named GLFC Coach of the Year. Wide receiver Mike Greaving, CE’08, was named Offensive Player of the Year. He and five teammates were named top players at their respective positions.
Six of the first-team picks were on the offensive side of the ball, including three from the offensive line. Guard Justin Hansen, a senior in civil engineering, was named top offensive lineman and was joined on the first team by center Dan Hickman, a junior in mechanical engineering, and guard John Krumme, a junior in chemical engineering. The linemen were joined on the first team by Greaving, quarterback Jason Schlueter, a junior in mechanical engineering, and tight end Bryan Crider, a junior in engineering management.
On defense, S&T had two players named as the top players at their positions. Defensive tackle Justin Philpy, a junior in aerospace engineering, was top lineman, and safety Robbie Woodard, a senior in mechanical engineering, was top defensive back. They were joined on the first team by defensive end Matt Loula, NucE’08, and linebacker Justin Butler, a senior in education.
S&T finished the 2008 season with a 7-4 record and won a conference title for the first time since 1983.

Boosting cyber-physical security

A wide array of complex systems that rely on computers — from public water supply systems and electric grids to chemical plants and self-driving vehicles — increasingly come under not just digital but physical attacks. Bruce McMillin, professor and interim chair of computer science at Missouri S&T, is looking to change that by developing stronger safeguards […]

MXene discovery could improve energy storage

In spite of their diminutive size, 2-D titanium carbide materials known as MXenes are “quite reactive” to water, a discovery S&T researchers say could have implications for energy storage and harvesting applications such as batteries, supercapacitors and beyond. Their findings were published in 2018 in the American Chemical Society journal Inorganic Chemistry.

A faster charge for electric vehicles

One drawback of electric vehicles (EVs) is the time it takes to charge them. But what if you could plug in your EV and fully charge it as quickly as it takes to fill up a conventional car with gasoline? Missouri S&T researchers, in collaboration with three private companies, are working to make speedy charging […]
