Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2007
"The campus itself was orderly and looks nice and they were constantly adding new buildings and improving. I liked the 24 hour lab that was accessible, and I thought all of the student assistants did a great job. I don't have any complaints about the teachers I could understand, and the other half of the teachers 'might' be good, but it's hard to say since you can't understand anything they're saying through their thick accents. Be prepared to work a lot harder or teach yourself in these classes. The two student advisers I had were absolutely terrible. The first one was rude and unhelpful and tried to make me take on more than I could handle. The one I had a few years in constantly tried to get me to switch majors due to how far behind and poorly I was doing in the math courses. I still managed to graduate and I have been programming for a company for 6 years, never having used any of the math I learned there."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"The faculty in the Biology Department at MS&T care if their students are learning. The department is small now, but is trying to grow. However, the small size does not limit the opportunities available to the student body. There are research positions for undergraduates and graduates in a variety of labs studying anything from microbiology, ecological systems, and more. The summer classes allow for interesting studies such as Cave Biology and students actually will find themselves studying the environments of caves in the Ozarks. Classes are available that allow you to study Tissue Engineering and see how the medical field is advancing. It is a wonderful school and a great program."

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"Coursework taught by the normal full-time professors is pretty good, in fact, as good as any course I've attended. That being said, the adjunct (I guess?) faculty left something to be desired. Not terrible, but not top notch either. No regrets though-- its a good program, a good school, at a great price point."

"Missouri S&T is a great university for advancing your knowledge in the STEM areas. It's campus, along with the University of Missouri system is working on it's mission of Diversity and Inclusion. If you choose to attend or have attended this university your education is very important to you. The coursework in all majors is rigorous and requires a great deal of focus and ambition. The university is affordable and of good quality. Non-engineering/Non-STEM majors are still welcome to the university but career placement after graduation is not of the same priority of that of STEM majors."

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013
"Missouri University of Science and Technology was a great school to study any discipline of Engineering or the Sciences. The Electrical Engineering program was especially fantastic due to the teaching staff and format of curriculum. The extra curricular activities available are endless and include Robotics team, Radio club, Research assisting, and much more."

"Missouri S&T is a small school and it is easy to meet people and get to know them. It is hard to walk across campus without seeing someone you know. Since almost everyone is either an engineering student or a science student, everyone has something in common. A lot of students take the same classes such as calculus and physics and so it is easy to form study groups. Teachers are aware that students focus on their math based education and less on their English and Creative writing. The whole school system is mindful of this and many curriculums have minimal art and English requirements. Outside of the classroom, students are able to find their niche. This was one of my favorite things when I first arrived as a student. It is uncommon to walk through campus and not hear people talking about chemical compounds, comic books, or Super Smash Bros in their free time. Even though theres no music major program, there are still musical ensembles to join. Missouri S&T has several sports teams and possibly one of the most popular activities are the design teams. Mars Rover, Robotics, and even Solar House where students build an entire house run completely off solar panels are just a couple of the many teams Missouri S&T has. The classes tend to be very difficult, though since everyone that goes to S&T were the top dog in their high school. They never had to study and they were getting straight As and graduated valedictorian and so forth. Even if this isnt the case for everyone, the teachers expect a high quality of work from the students. Some teachers expect at least 2 hours of work to be done outside of the classroom for every 1 hour spent in lecture. This is part of what gives Missouri S&T such a good reputation and catches the eye of employers. A lot of engineering companies hire students who graduate from S&T because they know theyve done the work to achieve the degree. It may not be the biggest school sports team or win the contest for most beautiful campus in the country, but it has a good reputation and a good feel. Im definitely glad Ive gone to S&T for my undergraduate degree and Im looking forward to graduating and moving on to Graduate School. I enjoy the campus community, the town of Rolla, and yes even the difficult classes. Missouri S&T may not be for everyone, but for others it is the perfect place to study."

"The college was small and quaint. I loved the size of the school and would definitely suggest going to an engineering school if you plan on majoring in engineering. My advice would be to pick an engineering major that could overlap with many different industries."

"The college is no nonsense, it will grind you up and spit you out. You'll either graduate in 4-6 years, or you'll fail out. Don't be discouraged from getting a degree somewhere else, if you fail out. Missouri S&T is a hard school, ~60% of your freshman class is going to be sitting next to you when you graduate."

"Excellent innovative program that prepared me for real jobs that will help strong companies. Graduates that have combined knowledge of both business and computer science is exactly what top companies are looking for. UMR is very career focused and will work diligently with students to find their ideal job trajectory."
