Welcome to Missouri S&T’s College of Engineering and Computing.

Engineers come from all walks of life and work for the good of humanity. I am happy that you have chosen Missouri S&T to prepare for – or continue – your engineering career. Whether you are a traditional undergraduate or graduate student or an engineering professional seeking to advance your career through online courses, we have something for you. Domestic and international students will find a home here. S&T is a safe and welcoming community, and I wish you the best in your studies with us.

In the CEC, we encourage new ideas and new visions of the future. We provide you with the tools to create solutions to current challenges and those that don’t yet exist. As we help you grow, we want to grow ourselves by recruiting more bright minds like yours and cultivating new programs that keep S&T at the forefront of innovation to add to our 16 undergraduate and 47 graduate degree programs. Whatever engineering or computing direction you want to take, from robotics to sustainable resources to new materials, you’ll find what you need at S&T.

At Missouri S&T, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for hands-on research to dive into your field of study. Our faculty researchers are known around the world, but we’re not resting. We continue to break barriers and cultivate new areas of investigation so that S&T stands among the great research institutions.   

Our research can be grouped into five overarching themes:

  • Infrastructure: addressing the global need for sustainable and secure infrastructure, including the development of cutting-edge materials and methodologies for building, monitoring, and rehabilitating the built environment
  • Engineering for extremes: mastering extreme environments with unique materials, applications, and approaches for design and implementation in diverse fields such as hypersonics, explosives, ballistics and high-radiation environments
  • Advanced manufacturing and economic development: building industries and developing the next generation workforce in cutting-edge materials, processes and manufacturing systems
  • Smart systems: leveraging advance computation, AI and big data to transform research in fields such as transportation, architecture, energy and coupled human-engineered systems to create a safe and secure future
  • Sustainable energy, minerals and resources: developing cutting-edge solutions to extract and use energy, critical minerals and Earth’s resources in a sustainable manner.

We are here to help you succeed, whatever path you choose to take. We’ve been around for more than 150 years, and our eyes are always on tomorrow. Together, we will engineer a bright future.

Thank you for choosing Missouri S&T, and again, welcome to the CEC!
