Maples, Missouri S&T interim chancellor, Dr. Joel Burken, chair of S&T’s civil, architectural and environmental engineering department, and Dr. James Drallmeier, chair of S&T’s mechanical and aerospace engineering department.

Missouri S&T officials joined representatives from Missouri State University on Sept. 26, at Missouri S&T for a signing ceremony to recognize the recent expansion of the Missouri S&T-Missouri State Cooperative Engineering Program to include a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.

For the past decade, Missouri State has offered courses in civil engineering and electrical engineering on its Springfield campus taught by faculty from Missouri S&T and Missouri State. Starting this fall, Missouri State students can apply to a third Missouri S&T engineering program — this one in mechanical engineering — that will begin in fall 2019.

As with other S&T’s engineering programs, students must first fulfill undergraduate prerequisites in a pre-engineering program before taking classes in their discipline. Read more.
