About Missouri S&T

Founded in 1870 as the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy, Missouri University of Science and Technology is one of the top technological institutions in the nation and among the first technological institutions established west of the Mississippi River. A US News and World Report Top 100 national public university, Missouri S&T serves 7,200 students and counts over 55,000 living alumni, including world-famous astronauts, scientists, engineers, inventors, and business leaders. S&T has three colleges: the College of the Arts, Sciences, and Education; the College of Engineering and Computing; and the newly established Kummer College of Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Economic Development. Nearly 400 faculty offer 101 degree undergraduate and graduate programs in business, engineering, science, computing, social sciences, and the humanities. Students entering S&T have an average ACT of 28.5, while 80% of all students are Missouri residents and 20% are first-generation.

In 2020, alumnus Fred Kummer and his wife June donated $300M to create the Kummer Institute of Student Success, Research, and Economic Development, with three primary objectives: (1) elevate S&T’s reputation as an educational and research organization, (2) create broad access to S&T’s exceptional STEM and business programs through outreach to Missouri’s K-12 communities, and (3) drive economic development regionally, statewide, and beyond. Missouri S&T is currently poised for dramatic achievement in these areas as the vision of the Kummer family is brought to fruition.
