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.

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.
