Our College is Growing!

The Jesse D. Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology welcomes two new academic departments as of July 1, 2014.

As part of a recent academic restructuring, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health is now part of the Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology. This represents a homecoming of sorts, as this department was originally part of MSU’s College of Industry and Technology, and its offices are located on the lower level of the Collins Center for Industry and Technology. The department provides a variety of strong curricular options which include an undergraduate degree program in the area of occupational safety and health (with safety and environmental tracks), a graduate degree program with concentrations in safety management, industrial hygiene, and environmental health, and a technical minor. The degree programs are accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission of ABET, a highly regarded affirmation of their quality.

We are also pleased to announce the formation of the MSU Institute of Engineering. The Institute will consolidate the former departments of Engineering and Physics and Industrial and Engineering Technology. Its mission is to seamlessly coordinate the advanced engineering and technology-related degree programs, faculty, and applied research laboratories at MSU in order to better educate our students and serve our region’s industrial and economic partners.

The MSU Institute of Engineering is the new home to more than 500 students majoring in a full suite of engineering, engineering technology, applied science, industrial technology and design, and telecommunications degree programs. These programs provide a comprehensive approach to meeting the needs of our service region in a broad range of technical applications, and they are attractive to both incoming freshmen and transfer students from our regional campuses. The engineering degree program is accredited by ABET, as are two of the engineering technology programs. More than 40 faculty and staff support the work of the MSU Institute of Engineering. Faculty members have advanced degrees in mechanical, electrical, civil, environmental, and biosystems engineering as well as physics, telecommunications, industrial design and architecture. Several faculty are registered as Professional Engineers, a respected credential in engineering. MSU is the only university in the commonwealth to offer such a complete spectrum of engineering, technology, and industrial and graphic design degree programs.
