Message from the Dean

Welcome to Missouri S&T and the College of Engineering and Computing. Since the creation of this institution nearly 150 years ago, engineering education and research have been the university’s core missions. College faculty are dedicated to building upon those traditions by training tomorrow’s leaders in engineering, science and technology, and by developing the technological know-how vital to the growth and prosperity of the state of Missouri and the nation.

The College of Engineering and Computing offers undergraduate B.S. degrees and graduate M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in nine academic departments.  The value of any degree for a graduating student is based on universally recognized and rigorous accreditation processes recognized by future employers.  We boast 18 engineering and computing degree programs -- more than three times the average available at U.S. universities – of which 16 are accredited through ABET.

Some of the most important and exciting research now underway in the CEC occurs at the interfaces between different disciplines: new materials to promote specific physiological responses in the body, novel optical sensors to monitor the health of bridges, big data collection and evaluation of local environmental conditions. Many of our faculty have extensive experience working in or with industry or entrepreneurial start-ups.

The strategic mission of Missouri S&T is to “integrate education, research and application to create and convey knowledge that serves our state and helps solve the world’s great challenges.”  At the College of Engineering and Computing, we stand ready to help our students and faculty develop the necessary skills and resources to become an integral part of that mission.
