Jeremy Schnurbusch

Early vision: Jeremy Schnurbusch, EE’05, knew early on what he wanted to do when he grew up. “My dad owns St. Louis Avionics. It was ingrained in me since I was a little kid — I always wanted to work in aviation.”

Why his job is awesome: He works for Boeing at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, testing the new avionics, software and weapons installed on F-15 fighters. “I get to work on Air Force fighter aircraft every day. The jets’ capabilities and systems are constantly being upgraded — we have to make sure these new capabilities are working as they should.” He and his colleagues plan test missions, write flight cards (in-flight instructions) for the aircrews and attend mission briefings to answer crew members’ questions. “It’s the most fun job I have had, but it also carries a lot of responsibility.”
Living on the coast: His favorite place to be when he’s not with F-15s is on the beach with his wife, Kimberly. “We are both very active and enjoy training for 5K, 10K and half-marathon races. A relaxing day is working with my yellow Labrador retriever in the inter-coastal waters, which consists of throwing the tennis ball over and over.”
From testing to flight: Schnurbusch was recently accepted into Officer Training School in the Air Force and was selected to attend undergraduate pilot training. “In five years, I will have graduated from pilot training and should be flying as an active duty pilot. Kimberly and I look forward to going overseas.” He hopes to eventually attend test pilot school.

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 […]
