About MU: The University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) is the flagship campus of the University of Missouri system and was established in 1839 as the first public university west of the Mississippi River. MU is one of the nation’s top-tier R1 institutions by US News and a RU/VH (research university with very high research activity) by Carnegie Foundation. It is also a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), composed of 62 leading research-intensive universities in the North America. The University of Missouri Research Reactor Center is the world’s most powerful university research reactor. MU is one of only six public universities in the US with medicine, veterinary medicine, and law all on one campus.
About Location: MU is located in Columbia, MO – which is the center of Missouri. It has consistently been ranked by Money magazine as one of the nation’s top places to live because of its excellent quality of life. It is 2 hour-drive to both Saint Louis and Kansas cities which are the metropolitan areas.
About career: The students well trained in this group will obtained strong hand-on experience in instrument design and construction, materials synthesis and processing, energy and electronic devices fabrication and testing. The targeted career path can be research scientists or engineer in semiconducting, instrumentation, chemical, oil production/service companies or national labs. The students with entrepreneurial spirits are motivated to start new companies.
