You can find engineering in everything — the food you eat, the roads you drive on, the water you drink, the electronic devices you use, the medicine and medical devices that keep you healthy and so much more. Engineers innovate and impact the world in the way few other professions can. At the University of Missouri College of Engineering, world-class faculty conduct cutting-edge research and train not just future engineers, but engineers ready to shape their world for the better the day they graduate. Are you ready to get in?
Pillars of Pursuit
As a world-class, globally renowned engineering leader, we will build upon our strengths in education, research and service. We will inspire and invest in our faculty and students and increase our impact upon the world through the four pillars of pursuit.
