Engineering education center relocates

The Engineering Education Center (EEC) has relocated to a new facility at a central location in St. Louis, sharing space with the University of Missouri-St. Louis West County Continuing Education Center. The EEC delivers 20 to 25 courses each semester, serving 400 to 500 students in Missouri and elsewhere.

“The facility can now simultaneously deliver up to four lectures to distance students as well as to the students on the Rolla campus and local students in St. Louis,” says Victor Birman, professor of mechanical engineering and EEC director. “New equipment makes it possible to pre-record distance classes and archive them for students who can’t attend real-time live lectures or who need repeated access to the lectures.”
