Missouri State University and Missouri University of Science and Technology cooperate in offering two engineering programs on the Missouri State University campus – Civil and Electrical Engineering. The degrees are granted by the Missouri University of Science and Technology in cooperation with Missouri State University. Most of the courses required for graduation will be offered on the Missouri State University campus. The Cooperative Engineering program was developed to satisfy the need for engineers in Southwest Missouri, and because of this, there are enrollment restrictions on the Cooperative Engineering program. The following rules apply: Students who are admitted to Missouri State University must have residency in one of the following sixteen counties in Missouri: Barry, Barton, Cedar, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Jasper, Lawrence, McDonald, Newton, Polk, Stone, Taney, Vernon or Webster. Students who do not have residency in the sixteen county area are not eligible for the Cooperative Engineering Program. Missouri State University will continue to offer the pre-engineering program to all students, which allows students to complete the first two years of courses on the Missouri State campus and then transfer to the Missouri University of Science and Technology (or another engineering school) to complete their engineering degree.
All entering students into the Civil or Electrical Engineering programs must first satisfy the admission requirements in the Missouri State University catalog. Students will be advised by faculty in the Cooperative Engineering Program, and will complete the courses specified for the Freshman Year of the degree. Students will complete the Freshman Year courses with a minimum of a 2.5 GPA, and meet other admission criteria in the Missouri University of Science and Technology catalog, before applying for admission to the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Students must be admitted to the Missouri University of Science and Technology before enrolling in the sophomore, junior and senior engineering courses.
Students will register for the sophomore, junior and senior level engineering courses through the Missouri University of Science and Technology, but the courses will be offered on the Missouri State University campus. Tuition and fees for the sophomore, junior and senior level engineering courses will be set at the Missouri University of Science and Technology rates. Students will register for all non-engineering courses through Missouri State University. Tuition and fees for the non-engineering courses will be set at the Missouri State University rates.
