S&T makes the grade with U.S. News

Missouri S&T is once again one of the top-ranked graduate engineering schools in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report. The magazine’s annual rankings of graduate schools, released in March, listed Missouri S&T 67th among the nation’s best graduate engineering schools and 39th among public graduate engineering schools. The rankings are included in the U.S. News guidebook’s “premium” online edition at www.usnews.com.


Last year, the guidebook ranked Missouri ­S&T No. 70.
U.S. News’ online rankings include six Missouri S&T graduate engineering programs, four of which improved upon their 2007 rankings, and one program not ranked last year:

  • Aerospace engineering, ranked 39th (28th among public universities)
  • Civil engineering, ranked 38th (tied for 24th among public universities)
  • Computer engineering, ranked 57th (tied for 33rd among public universities)
  • Electrical engineering, ranked 50th (tied for 30th among public universities)
  • Materials engineering, ranked 39th (25th among public universities)
  • Mechanical engineering, ranked 48th (tied for 29th among public universities)

“We are very pleased with Missouri S&T’s outstanding graduate programs and the national recognition they have received,” says Provost Warren K. Wray. “Having five graduate programs among the nation’s top ­50 underscores the recognition that our peers have of our programs.”
U.S. News ranks 12 individual engineering disciplines. Missouri S&T offers 10 of those programs (including the six listed above), plus seven additional graduate degrees in engineering that are not ranked by U.S. News.

“Forged in Gold: Missouri S&T’s First 150 Years”

In the 1870s, Rolla seemed an unlikely location for a new college. There were only about 1,400 residents in a community with more saloons than houses of worship. There were no paved streets, sewers or water mains. To visitors, there seemed to be as many dogs, hogs, horses, ducks and geese as humans walking the dusty streets.

Geothermal goals exceeded

After five years of operation, Missouri S&T’s geothermal energy system continues to outperform expectations. S&T facilities operations staff originally predicted the geothermal system would reduce campus water usage by over 10% — roughly 10 million gallons per year. The system, which went online in May 2014, cut actual water usage by 18 million to 20 […]

What happens in Vegas…may appear in print

In his latest volume of Las Vegas lore, historian Larry Gragg says it was deliberate publicity strategies that changed the perception of Sin City from a regional tourist destination where one could legally gamble and access legalized prostitution just outside the city limits, to a family vacation spot filled with entertainment options and surrounded by […]
