Chancellor John F. Carney III used that equation, conceived by Dick Stegemeier, PetE’50, in his Dec. 3 State of the University address to highlight how Missouri S&T is uniquely qualified to tackle the world’s energy and environmental issues.

Missouri S&T is the only university in the United States that offers 16 different undergraduate engineering programs and the only one with a combination of energy-related programs like geology, geophysics, geological engineering, environmental engineering, mining engineering, nuclear engineering and petroleum engineering.

Carney hopes to increase the “greenness” of the campus to demonstrate to students how a sustainable future can work. As a first step, the campus is replacing 10,000 light fixtures in 21 buildings with new energy-saving bulbs. This will save $220,000 in annual energy costs, or 6 percent of the campus’s yearly electrical usage.
