Mizzou Engineering Tiger Tracks
Mizzou Engineering Tiger Tracks provides guided pathways to earning college credits while still in high school, which will advance STA students toward ten engineering degrees. Mizzou Engineering's excellence includes ABET-accredited programs, 148 faculty members, and nearly 3,200 of the brightest students on MU’s campus leading the charge in research and education in several multi-disciplinary fields, including Big Data Analytics, Biomedical Innovations and Sustainability in FEWSed (Food, Energy, Water, Smart Cities).
The University of Missouri College of Engineering graduates future engineering leaders — leaders equipped with the skills to solve the challenges of not just today, but those yet to come. Mizzou allows students to utilize Advanced Placement credit (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) credits earned in high school toward their engineering degree. Our advisors will work with STA staff to develop comprehensive and individualized pathways for STA students to earn additional credit while in high school, which may include introductory engineering courses offered online at Mizzou and dual-credit courses from area community colleges.
Mizzou Engineering offers more than $1.2 million in merit-based scholarships annually to high-achieving incoming freshmen and transfer students, including PLTW and FIRST Robotics Scholarships. Through the Missouri Land Grant Compact, Mizzou offers competitive, affordable education to Missouri residents. The Compact may be awarded to all undergraduate Missouri residents who are full-time, Pell Grant-eligible students working toward their first undergrad degree, and it will meet 100 percent of the unmet financial need for full-time, Pell-eligible students enrolled in the Honors College, including tuition, fees, and room and board.
With more than 300 degree programs at Mizzou, the College of Engineering offers 10 degree programs in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering – the only such program at a public institution in Missouri — Chemical Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Information Technology, and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. At Mizzou Engineering, we offer our students new higher-learning and cutting-edge research opportunities in faculty labs and the chance to develop leadership skills that will develop them into engineering leaders.
