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.

There were no paved streets, sewers or water mains. To visitors, there seemed to be as many dogs, hogs, horses, ducks and geese as humans walking the dusty streets.

Geothermal goals exceeded

After five years of operation, Missouri S&T’s geothermal energy system continues to outperform expectations. S&T facilities operations staff originally predicted the geothermal system would reduce campus water usage by over 10% — roughly 10 million gallons per year. The system, which went online in May 2014, cut actual water usage by 18 million to 20 […]

What happens in Vegas…may appear in print

In his latest volume of Las Vegas lore, historian Larry Gragg says it was deliberate publicity strategies that changed the perception of Sin City from a regional tourist destination where one could legally gamble and access legalized prostitution just outside the city limits, to a family vacation spot filled with entertainment options and surrounded by […]
