The MTSU Experimental Vehicles lunar rover team was named best in the nation during the NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, in 2015. The student-built rover, nicknamed “The Beast,” placed third overall behind Russia and runner-up Germany.
MTSU’s exercise science experts have worked wonders with people who suffer from incomplete spinal cord injuries. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently provided a $388,894 grant to fund a comprehensive study that could change how health professions treat these patients, who retain some sensation or motor function. The study is unusual for a university not connected to a college of medicine or a teaching hospital.
MTSU just opened the Center for Chinese Culture and Music, the only center of its kind in North America. The center, which includes a gallery of Chinese musical instruments, will promote music and culture as well as language, business, and trade. The 3,200-square-foot center on Bell Street is part of MTSU’s Confucius Institute, created through a partnership with Hangzhou (China) Normal University.
