Undergraduate Research Conference

Missouri S&T Undergraduate Research Conference

The Missouri University of Science and Technology emphasizes the participation of undergraduates in research through a number of means, including an annual undergraduate research conference. This event provides an opportunity for Missouri S&T undergraduates to showcase their research efforts to the campus community and to the public.  All Missouri S&T students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend the Conference.

Abstract Book

Steven B. Jung is the CTO of Mo-Sci Corporation, a specialty glass company located in Rolla MO.  Jung joined Mo-Sci Corporation in 2010 after completing his BS, MS, and PhD in Ceramic Engineering at S&T.  Since beginning at Mo-Sci, Jung has focused his efforts on commercializing cutting edge research in areas such as healthcare, energy, and information technology.  Fundamental or basic science research is very important, but ultimately in industry we want this work to develop into something that solves a problem, and become a product or service that a customer is willing to purchase.  Steve will discuss a few examples of basic science research that began in research labs on the S&T campus and had significant contributions by undergraduate and graduate students and has since been developed into commercial products that solve real world problems.  Jung currently serves as the CTO to Mo-Sci Corporation, CTO to Engineered Tissue Solutions, as an Adjunct faculty member in Materials Science and Engineering at S&T, and as a Rolla City Council Member.  He is also a member of the Academy of Mines and Metallurgy at S&T and a member of the S&T Athletic Hall of Fame for Swimming.  He has won numerous societal and university awards but is most proud of the civic work he has been able to accomplish in his home of Rolla MO.
