The MU Leadership, Engagement and Career Development Academy offers students a variety of opportunities to expand their perspectives, grow their leadership skills, interact with industry on a more frequent basis and enhance their competitiveness for employment.
The Academy was developed to complement the College’s strategic goal of Educating Engineering Leaders. Students will receive both enhanced career development services and the opportunity to learn from engineering leaders and industry professionals who will present sessions on many personal and professional development topics.
If you or your company are interested in presenting a session, learning more about the Mentor Network or meeting with engineering students in other settings, please download the Employer Fact Sheet and complete the Employer Interest Form.

The capstone design experience is a small-group, project-oriented course that is structured to draw upon a student’s entire undergraduate academic repertoire. This capstone course integrates early technical work with economic, safety and environmental considerations.
The projects are primarily obtained from industry or private business clients. Results are presented to a review panel consisting of members of the faculty, the department industrial boards and representatives of the sponsors/client firms. The final goal is to give clients actionable results that could potentially be applied to their proposed problem while giving students the experience of working on a project for a real-world client in much the same way they will after graduation.

Mizzou Engineering students have the chance to get involved as soon as they step on campus. More than 50 student organizations are currently active, giving energetic and driven students the opportunity to build their engineering skills outside of a classroom setting and to grow into engineering leaders. These organizations range from honor societies and the Mizzou Engineering Student Council to competition teams in the areas of electric cars, concrete canoes, rockets, steel and timber bridges and much, much more.
As partners, you’ll have the chance to work with these organizations and interact with students building the kinds of skills that will be valuable to your organization in the near future. You have the ability to sponsor teams and projects, present to members of these student organizations, host meetings and more.

Rural Engineering Internships
The goal of the Rural Engineering Internship (REI) program is to raise awareness of future job opportunities for engineers in rural areas of Missouri. The program seeks to support rural communities and companies located in rural areas by providing summer engineering interns to provide technical assistance and meet staffing needs. The program is dedicated improving the outreach of the College of Engineering to rural communities in Missouri.
