As part of the ELEC ENG 6001: POWER SYSTEM PROTECTION II course, the instructor Prof.Paul Nauert arranged a fried trip for the students to visit Ameren's Dorsett facilities and the ABB St. Louis Transformer Plant on September 29, 2017.
Ona Egbue, a doctoral student in engineering management at Missouri University of Science and Technology is studying potential disruptions to the long-term supply chain of lithium. "Lithium batteries are top choices for high-performance rechargeable battery packs," Egbue says.
Thirteen electrical engineering seniors and recent graduates each received a $5,000 Grainger Power Engineering Award from the electrical engineering department. The awards are presented as a reward for academic excellence. students at Missouri University of Science and Technology recently completed their own vehicle, a hybrid go-kart.

From the front view, the Newton, built in North Kansas City by Smith Electric Vehicles, looks like any other urban delivery truck -- the type that transports packages across town, or carries a full load of soft drinks and even snack items such as potato chips to the local supermarket. But take a closer look under the cab and along the chassis and you'll discover what makes this vehicle different. You'll see why it not only runs quieter than most trucks its size and releases zero emissions, but can achieve speeds up to 50 miles per hour at a range in excess of 100 miles - all without a drop of gas.
“We’ve developed a new certificate program for these vehicles, which is incorporated into the curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Automotive Technology Management degree,” said Scott Wilson, program coordinator. “The students who complete the B.S. degree will also complete the certificate.”
The other university partner in the three-year federal grant, the Missouri Safety Center, is under the direction of Terry Butler. He said the center’s role in this partnership is to develop non-academic safety awareness training short courses designed to educate individuals on safety concerns related to advanced electric drive vehicles (AEV), including hands-on driver safety training. These courses will include educational outreach to AEV fleet purchasers, AEV technicians and maintenance personnel, AEV drivers (year one); law enforcement and emergency management services personnel (year two) and the general public (year three).
For more information about the Automotive Technology Management Program, contact Wilson at 660-543-4065. To learn more about programs offered by the Missouri Safety Center, contact Butler at 660-543-4213.
What's Now & What's New - Plug-in Hydrogen EcoCARs
This week-long residential camp will give you the opportunity to learn first-hand how Hydrogen Fuel Cell Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FC-PHEV) reduce global environmental impact by minimizing the vehicle's fuel consumption and reducing its emissions while retaining performance, safety and consumer appeal.

The revolution of the auto industry will be epic. It is happening right now. As the possibilities of alternative fuels are endless, the options are also endless. One technology bridges the gap between current and future vehicles: electric drive. Whether it is paired with gasoline today, or alternative fuels tomorrow, electric vehicle technology adds convenience, efficiency, and appeal to motor vehicles.
