Engineering

Programs in Engineering are multi-department programs, and administered by the College of Engineering.  Requirements are determined based on the specific area of interest.  Options include a minor at the undergraduate level, and a master's degree at the graduate level.

Please see the appropriate degree program pages for faculty information.

*

Graduate Faculty Member - membership is required to teach graduate-level courses, chair master's thesis committees, and serve on doctoral examination and dissertation committees.

**

Doctoral Faculty Member - membership is required to chair doctoral examination or dissertation committees.  Graduate faculty membership is a prerequisite for Doctoral faculty membership.

The College of Engineering offers the Master of Engineering degree for graduate students interested in a terminal master's degree, who have a demonstrated need for a professional, non-research degree in engineering, and have an academic interest in a specific focus area within engineering.

Several departments in the College of Engineering administers an ME degree focusing in that area.

Note: A focus area is not listed on the MU transcript.  Hence the transcript and the diploma for any student completing an ME degree will only indicate Master of Engineering, with no designation of any specific department.

ENGINR 1000: Introduction to Engineering

This course will help students identify a field of engineering that they will pursue during the remainder of their studies at MU. This objective will be achieved by exposing students to the history of our engineering disciplines, and by giving an overview of the individual departments within the college of engineering. Guest lecturers from industry will make presentations on what it's like to be an engineer. Other lectures will be given to help acclimate students to university life. Graded on A-F basis only.

ENGINR 2010: Women in Engineering Leadership

This is a course focused on women in leadership, leadership development and leadership in engineering. Through experiential learning, empowering examples, group discussion, written reflections, attendance at three conferences, one retreat and completion of two short papers and one major project, you will develop the self-knowledge and skills to practice leadership for a changing world, explore your own potential for leadership, explore the context for the practice of leadership and learn to make a difference through leadership. Beginning in August and working through May, you will work individually and in teams to produce a final project that shows how your own skills and knowledge about leadership can you help you use your passion and engineering degree to impact the world around you.
