“We’re excited to celebrate the 150th anniversary of our incorporation as a college. We have a proud tradition of engineering the future, and we look forward to reflecting on our legacy of student success, innovation and leadership throughout the year. Thank you for being a part of our ongoing legacy.”

Digital Time Capsule

In celebration of the 150th anniversary, the College of Engineering will create a digital time capsule. All students, faculty and staff are invited to get involved in the celebration by uploading photos, videos and documents throughout the year to commemorate this moment in history for our College. We’re looking for images that capture your time here at Mizzou Engineering, documents outlining your current research or projects, videos of club events and other assets that showcase Mizzou Engineering.
