Project enables MU Engineering students to work on energy efficiency at Missouri farms
Apr 27, 2012
There’s a lot that goes into developing sustainable energy. MU’s college of engineering has several programs that focus on some of the more technical aspects. This is one of them.
From College of Engineering
Sanjeev Khanna, a University of Missouri mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, and a team of engineering students found it necessary to climb onto the roof of the building at a poultry farm in rural Missouri to install electrical equipment as part of Missouri Agricultural and Energy Saving Team — A Revolutionary Opportunity (MAESTRO) project. The students were up on the roof in no time while Khanna was much more cautious and in no hurry to get on top.
MAESTRO is an interdisciplinary project implemented by the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, the MU College of Engineering and MU Extension. Its focus is energy efficiency improvement for the agricultural sector in Missouri. The Missouri Department of Agriculture is leading the overall project with funding from the United States Department of Energy. More…
