History

Mizzou Engineering was incorporated in 1871 as the School of Engineering, although our history dates back to 1849 when the University of Missouri offered the first engineering course west of the Mississippi. The College has celebrated several milestones over the course of its more than 150-year legacy, including being among the first to offer civil engineering, electrical engineering and to have a nuclear reactor on campus.

We have a long and proud tradition of engineering innovation, from implementing Thomas Edison’s Dynamo in the 1880s to being among the first colleges to integrate the Spot autonomous robot from Boston Dynamics into our undergraduate curriculum in 2021.
