Reaching new heights in engineering starts with quality foundation and innovation.
The cooperative engineering program at Missouri State University, a partnership with Missouri University of Science and Technology, will be grounded in newly constructed engineering facilities at the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center.
The additional spaces support the cooperative engineering program’s growing student body.
The center hosted a dedication event today to celebrate the addition.
“Thanks to community support for our cooperative engineering program that made the new facilities possible, we can provide the training necessary for all our students to be ready for internships and careers in engineering,” said Dr. Tamera Jahnke, dean of the College of Natural and Applied Sciences at Missouri State.
Fueling new capabilities
The donors who contributed to the project include:
- Anderson Engineering, Inc.
- Associated Electric Cooperative.
- Guy Mace.
- Olsson, Inc.
- The Durham Company.
- Toth and Associates.
“The funding given by these donors helped us equip the facilities’ labs with everything our engineering students need to learn to become professional engineers,” Jahnke said. “They will also continue to support projects that engineering students and faculty complete collaboratively in their classes.”
