Nationally recognized research starts here

As one of the world’s leading technological research universities, Missouri University of Science and Technology is nationally recognized for its research and scholarship.

Our faculty, staff and alumni have been at the forefront of many of the world’s greatest achievements, including the world’s first trans-Atlantic telephone call, Doppler radar, the Apollo 11 moon landing and the creation of Twitter.

World-changing research occurs every day at S&T. Key research areas include biomedical science and engineering, civil infrastructure, energy research and development, environmental research, intelligent systems, materials research, and rock mechanics and explosives. Missouri S&T’s interdisciplinary approach to research involves students working alongside world-class faculty in a variety of fields – from the sciences and engineering to the humanities, business and the liberal arts. 

As Missouri’s leading science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) public university, Missouri S&T researchers focus on our state’s areas of need first and foremost, including electrical and cyber systems, energy, the environment, manufacturing, materials and civil infrastructure.

This future-focused research will be carried out in S&T’s four signature research areas – Advanced Manufacturing, Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure, Enabling Materials for Extreme Environments and Smart Living – which align with the university’s strategic plan.
