Missouri University of Science and Technology

Missouri's Premier Technological University

The Missouri University of Science and Technology, founded in 1870 as the Missouri School of Mines (MSM), was the first technological university west of the Mississippi and one of the first in the United States. For over 130 years, we've been one of the nation's premier universities for science, technology, and, of course, engineering. In 1964, MSM became known as the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and now awards undergraduate and graduate degrees in 35 fields of engineering, science, humanities, and social sciences.

Today, MST continues its tradition of educating skilled professionals in engineering and science, and ranks among the top 25 American universities in the number of undergraduate engineering degrees awarded each year. Known for its small, caring environment and its individualized attention to students, MST proudly brings its strong tradition of academic excellence into the 21st century, offering the quality of a private-school education at a public school price.

The Missouri University of Science and Technology became a PLTW National Affiliate Training Center in 2004.
