Missouri S&T is a great school if you're looking for a high quality, affordable engineering degree. The course work is applicable and at times rigorous, but will prepare you for the career path of your choosing. The professors in many cases have been in the private sector for several years which influences the way the classes are taught and in turn imparting more "real world" knowledge. Where the school really shines is the plethora of activities, clubs, research projects, and design teams. These outside-the-classroom activities are where the rubber meets the pavement, while learning useful "real world" industry knowledge, connections are also forged with those already well into their careers, thus providing opportunities for employment after graduation.

All-in-all Missouri S&T is a great school, highly recommended.

Missouri S&T is an excellent school. It gets a lot of flack for being a tough school, but it's not only hard, but it's also a really good school with great programs. The professors, TA's and other administrators will help you succeed and help you pass. The coursework is hard, but every student is given all the tools necessary to succeed here. The campus is really nice too! Small and easy to navigate, the campus is both cool and charming.
Missouri S&T is among the highest rated engineering universities in America for a reason. The teachers are incredible, and the facilities are top-notch. The classes available are myriad, you will always wish that you were able to take more classes, because they all seem very enjoyable.
The atmosphere at MST is a focused one, the students here are here to learn. During the week, the campus is quiet, but during the weekend there is always something to do.
