Missouri University of Science and Technology

Campus Information

Founded in 1870 as Missouri School of Mines, Missouri University of Science and Technology primarily educated mining engineers and surveyors. The campus really started to grow right after World War II. As the need for engineers and scientists grew, so did the university. The campus evolved into a world-class technological research university, one that was making an impact beyond the state and nation.

In 1964, the institution’s name was changed to the University of Missouri-Rolla. UMR was the technology flagship of the four-campus University of Missouri System.

Then, in 2008, the name officially became Missouri University of Science and Technology. As a technological research university, Missouri S&T is a member of a small but elite group of American institutions that distinguish themselves by having a mission-based commitment to improving the world through the study and application of advanced sciences and technology.

There are 16 technological research universities in the nation, including MIT, Caltech, Missouri S&T, Rensselaer, Georgia Tech and the Colorado School of Mines. Many of these institutions complement their technological strengths by offering good programs in humanities, liberal arts and social sciences.  Missouri S&T is admired around the world for preparing students and creating research that solves the problems of a technological society.
