Freshman Curriculum

Missouri State University and the Missouri University of Science and Technology are proud to offer multiple engineering programs on the Missouri State University campus.

Missouri State University will continue to offer a strong pre-engineering program to all students who wish to transfer to the Missouri University of Science and Technology or another engineering school and major in other areas of engineering.

Students must satisfy the admission requirements in the Missouri State University catalog and be admitted to Missouri State University. Formal admission into the Cooperative Engineering Program will be made by the Missouri University of Science and Technology, in consultation with Missouri State University, according to the admission criteria described in the Missouri University of Science and Technology catalog.

Freshman year

The Freshman year curriculum is the same for all engineering majors. The EGR 110 - Study and Careers in Engineering course will discuss the different fields of engineering and help students decide which field of engineering they wish to study. The common Freshman curriculum is below:

The following degree plan is based on the 2018-19 graduate catalog.

Additional notes

  • Refer to prerequisite requirements for any MTH class requirements.

The remaining three years of the engineering curriculum depends on the major selected. Students majoring in Civil or Electrical Engineering will complete their degree at the Missouri State University campus. Students pursuing other engineering degrees should consult with an academic advisor to plan their second year of coursework at Missouri State University, and to prepare to transfer to the Missouri University of Science and Technology or another engineering school to complete their degree.
