Factors considered for admission into the University of Missouri-Columbia include ACT score, class rank, and high school core course work. Core course work must include 17 high school units (yearlong classes) in the following: English-4 units (1 unit may be speech or debate; two units must emphasize composition or writing skills); Math-4 units (Alg. I & higher); Science-3 units (one must be lab course; gen. sci. does not apply); Soc. Studies-3 units; For. Lang.-2 units of the same language; Fine Arts-1 unit.

The College of Engineering requirements for freshman admission are as follows: An ACT Math Score of at least 26 and an ACT Composite of at least 26 or a high school class rank in the upper 25 percent. Admittance to the Information Technology (IT) degree program will follow the standard MU Admissions requirements.

Students admitted to the College of Engineering will work to complete a foundational curriculum consisting of math, science and engineering courses during their first year at MU. At least 12 hours of stipulated classes must be completed at MU and upon completion of requirements, students will be evaluated for admittance into available degree programs.

Direct Admission into Engineering Departments through the Engineering Achievement Program
High achieving students may receive direct admission into the Engineering Achievement Program (EAP). These students may be eligible for special engineering scholarships and opportunities to interact with college administrators. They will receive invitations to network with faculty who participate in the Undergraduate Research Program, which allows students to work on cutting-edge research projects and offers the potential to fast track an engineering master’s program.

Achievement program students also may qualify for acceptance into the MU Honors College, and if all criteria are met upon graduation, they will receive an honors designation and may participate in the honors convocation ceremony. The Honors College option is open to all qualifying freshmen.

Professional development and networking are an integral component of the EAP. Students in the program may immediately apply for the Alumni Mentoring Program to be matched with a recent engineering graduate working in industry who can share insights and lend assistance in making connections.

Student is advised by Engineering Student Services
Curriculum keeps pace with directly admitted students

Recommendations

It is recommended that High School students take as much additional math and science as possible.

Research Description

Research Description By Graduate Engineering Department

Bioengineering

The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Missouri is a broad-based program that integrates faculty, education and research in the following areas:
- Biomedical engineering,
- Bioprocess engineering, and
- Bioenvironmental engineering.

In biomedical engineering, the research has broad focus areas. The first is biophotonics and biosensinghe is membrane transport and signaling. In first area, one group of faculty work on medical imaging techniques such as CT, tissue optics, OCT, photoacoustics, and ultrasoundgroup develop biosensing and bioimaging methodologies based on FRET, optical resonator, single-molecule sensing, and delayed fluorescence. In the second area, group focuses on cell electrophysiology and sensing including ion channels, Ca sensing, exocytosis, bioMEMS, and 2-photon microscopyrelated to neurological disorders.

Research in bioprocess engineering emphasizes bioresource utilization. Areas of research include biomass-based products (fuels, foams, and chemicals), food engineering, and bioprocess automation. In the bioenvironmental engineering area, the emphasis is on water quality issues, including wastewater treatment, bioremediation, precision chemical application technologies, and non-point source pollution.

Part of the BE core faculty are housed in the and the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center. The affiliated faculty members are from five different colleges/schools on campus. Current externally-funded research exceeds $10M and research funding comes from major sources such as NIH, NSF, USDA, the Coulter Foundation, American Heart Association and industry, including three current NSF-CAREER Awards.

Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering

The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering conducts advanced research investigating and improving the systems aspects of the service and manufacturing sectors. Within these application areas, the Department applies sets of tools to address a variety of problems. These tools include optimization methodologies, integration theory, static and dynamic systems modeling, and evaluation techniques.



Departmental research, however, is not only the application of tools to solve problems. It is also the development and refinement of the theories and the methodologies underlying these tool sets, resulting in new and improved methodologies. Therefore, Departmental research can be viewed from two perspectives: (1) the application area of the problem and (2) the tools and techniques developed to solve the problem.



Current research projects run the gamut from educational and curricular innovations to basic research. Examples of current research projects include the development and evolution of a collaborative course sequence on entrepreneurship and innovation; the application of theory of constraints to railroad routing and expansion; the reliability and quality assurance of state bridges; the study of economic emergence which deals with the impacts of entrepreneurship, social infrastructure, and data mining techniques for qualitative and quantitative data; the development of a design retrieval system based on associated memory; the development of strategic models for non-profit organizations to determine how to best "re-engineer" their processes; the study of supply chains and other logistical issues in service and manufacturing sectors; the reduction of errors in the health care sector; the systems analysis of the health care industry and ways to develop Healthcare Engineering; the study of systematic scheduling methodologies in complex and dynamic environments focusing on the development of efficient heuristics based on the exploration of structural properties, especially when jobs with stochastic processing times and deterministic due dates arrive randomly; development of a user-friendly graphics-based sawing trainer for hardwood sawyers that incorporates the ability to nondestructively evaluate outcomes of log sawing strategies on log specimens modeled from several log species; the combination of sensor technology and the information systems to food supply monitoring; development of new techniques, structural results, and approximations for dynamic process control in the presence of resource constraints and uncertainty; development of the underlying theory and tools necessary to cultivate Virtual Enterprises systems for strategic planning that is adaptable to any situation and that can be rapidly employed; development of models and solution techniques that integrate both "structural" and "operational" issues within a single approach to obtain better overall designs for material flow systems; development of the basic structure of interior point methodologies for integer programming applications; ergonomics related to hospital beds and nurse task fatigue; winter maintenance optimization for the state; optimization in radiation therapy; wireless sensor relocation; fictitious play in stochastic systems; and the development of models for highly variable enterprises such as farming and the consequences of this variability on the related supply/demand chains.

Dual Degrees

Graduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

A student may pursue and complete two master's degrees simultaneously at MU by: 1) Satisfying the requirements of the two master's degrees in the participating two programs, schools or departments. These requirements must include at least 15 hours at the 7000/8000 level or above in EACH of the degree programs. 2) Completing degree requirements: a thesis or project for each program, or a shared thesis or project to satisfy the requirements of both programs. Since both programs must approve the student's planned courses of study, the student is expected to begin the programs at the same time and simultaneously conclude both degree programs.

The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, in cooperation with the College of Business and Public Administration, offers a dual master's degree program for those students who wish to combine the specialized skills of the industrial engineer with the general knowledge of the professional manager. The program was developed in recognition of the fact that solutions to organization problems often require that the engineer's analytical abilities be applied simultaneously with the manager's integrative perspective. This dual program has been carefully structured to provide the necessary academic background to obtain an MS in industrial engineering and an MBA simultaneously, in a minimum amount of time, usually two and a half academic years.

In addition, Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, in cooperation with the health services management program of the School of Medicine, offers a dual master's degree program to prepare its graduates for careers in the design and administration of health-care delivery systems and organizations. The program was developed in recognition of the highly complex nature of health-care organizations. The program's basic objective is to fuse competencies in the health-service management in health-systems design. The required courses in the industrial engineering program serve as the area of specialization in the health services management program, and the required courses in the health services management program are used as electives in the industrial engineering program. As a result, it is possible for the student to earn an MHA in health services management and an MS in industrial engineering simultaneously.
