Success in arts, sciences and business

It’s no secret that Missouri S&T is known for engineering. It’s been that way since our founding nearly 150 years ago. The U.S. needed engineers to help fuel the nation’s industrial expansion, and the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy — now Missouri S&T — was established in 1870 to meet that need. [Read more…]

Smart technologies

Where people and technology intersect

Smart phones. Smart watches. Smart speakers. Smart appliances.

Smart devices improve people’s lives every day. Advances in smart technology help people stay connected, find information and organize their lives along with numerous other benefits.

But these advances also bring a sense of unease and insecurity, such as concerns about privacy, personal data sharing and ethics. [Read more…]

Fuel for the precision moon shot

The highest research priority for the University of Missouri System can be described as a kind of “moon shot” moment — an ambitious stretch that will require all hands on deck. And three CASB researchers will play an important role.
Unlike President John F. Kennedy’s call to put a man on the moon, however, this effort is firmly grounded in one of the great challenges of the terrestrial world: the challenge of “precision medicine,” or customized, personalized health care and medical treatment. [Read more…]

A look at the new faces of learning at Missouri S&T

The road to Rolla

New faculty seek to make a difference at S&T

When he first came to campus a decade ago, David Lipke had no idea that he would one day call Missouri S&T home. The Georgia Institute of Technology Ph.D. student instead had a more narrow focus: gaining access to a piece of specialized equipment that his home institution — one of the nation’s top programs in materials science and engineering — didn’t have at the time.

Teaching students is priority No. 1

When Michelle Schwartze arrived for a tour of Missouri S&T, students kept interrupting her guide, Larry Gragg, Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor emeritus and former chair of history and political science, to say hello and talk with him. Those interactions drew her to S&T. [Read more…]
