Strength in Research
Mizzou engineering sustains a variety of research centers, programs, groups and facilities along with other departmental groups that are designated as areas of exemplary expertise and success. The college contributes significantly to MU’s overall annual research and development spending.
Variety of Opportunity
Plan to take advantage of the extensive educational and extracurricular possibilities offered at Mizzou. MU’s wide range of programs and facilities means rare opportunities for multidisciplinary study and research. Some of our research programs include:
- National Science Foundation-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates in Computational Neuroscience
- Life Sciences Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program
- Engineering Undergraduate Research Program
As an engineering student you have the mind, the ability and the potential. Mizzou engineering has the skilled faculty, the labs and the classrooms to provide you with an excellent education. Besides gaining expertise in your chosen field, you’ll be encouraged and given opportunities to develop entrepreneurship, leadership and teamwork skills.
Mizzou engineering is more than a parade of auditorium lectures. Exceptional students can get involved in the undergraduate research program. If you decide to join, you will work with a faculty member on a research project beginning your sophomore year and can receive graduate credit for your efforts during your senior year.
Students can also participate in the study abroad program, new to engineering. Take part in the cultural and educational experience of traveling abroad, all while learning about the big picture of engineering.
Outside of class
Engineering doesn’t end at the classroom door or even in the lab. Get involved with any of the different student organizations and design teams, that offer a variety of opportunities for undergraduates to make friends and excel as students and future engineers. An award-winning recreational facility is also available for student use.
K-12 & Community School Involvement
The engineering bug starts early – Mizzou engineering hosts numerous K-12 activities, including Lego camps, summer programs, and weekend events. Student organizations share their expertise with students in and out of the classroom. High school and college teachers also can expand their understanding of engineering principles through workshops.
