Institutional Mission

Southeast Missouri State University provides professional education grounded in the liberal arts and sciences and in practical experience.

The University, through teaching and scholarship, challenges students to extend their intellectual capacities, interests, and creative abilities; develop their talents; and acquire a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. Students benefit from a relevant, extensive, and thorough general education; professional and liberal arts and sciences curricula; co-curricular opportunities; and real-world experiences. By emphasizing student-centered and experiential learning, the University prepares individuals to participate responsibly in a diverse and technologically-advanced world and in this and other ways contributes to the development of the social, cultural, and economic life of the region, state and nation.

Department Mission

The mission of the Department of Engineering & Technology is to:

  • Provide curricula to prepare students for technical and technical management-orientated employment in business, industry, education, and government which is vital to the region and the state.
  • Prepare students to apply and manage technology to solve practical problems.
  • Provide state-of-the-art facilities, instructional programs, experiential learning, and research experiences for students to develop linkages between theory and practice.
  • Provide synergy between traditional classroom teaching and practical “hands-on” learning using state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for all programs offered in the department.
  • Encourage and support continuous faculty development in order to encourage faculty to remain current with technology relevant to their instructional areas of responsibility through professional and applied research activities.
  • Utilize faculty and student expertise to provide professional assistance to related businesses and industries in the area.

Engineering Technology Program Educational Objectives

Developed based on dialogue with constituents. The expected accomplishments of graduates during their first few years after graduation.

Objective Description
OB1 Develop within our graduates an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
OB2 Develop within our graduates an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
OB3 Develop within our graduates an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
OB4 Develop within our graduates an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
OB5 Develop within our graduates an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams, including an understanding of issues related to diversity and global community.
