An expansion of the partnership between Missouri S&T and Missouri State University will allow students to pursue a mechanical engineering degree on the Missouri State campus with courses taught by faculty from both institutions. Students began applying this fall. The program will begin in fall 2019.
This is the third S&T engineering program offered through the partnership. For the past decade, Missouri S&T has offered courses in civil engineering and electrical engineering on Missouri State’s Springfield campus. More than 200 students have graduated from the cooperative engineering program since its start.
“Missouri S&T and Missouri State forged a commitment to combine our resources and expand our world-class engineering curriculum into southwest Missouri,” says Richard Wlezien, S&T’s vice provost and dean of engineering and computing. “The success of those efforts is based on a true partnership that has paved the path forward toward a broader collaboration that serves as a model for public universities in this state and beyond.”
