Missouri University of Science and Technology is again one of the top 100 values in public higher education, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
Kiplinger’s ranks Missouri S&T No. 62 in the nation for in-state students and No. 59 for out-of-state students. The list ranks four-year public colleges and universities that combine academic quality with affordability, with the 100 best values selected from a pool of more than 500 institutions.
In April 2009, S&T was also selected for Kiplinger’s online Reader’s Choice feature.
“The Kiplinger’s rankings reflect the value and strength of a Missouri S&T education,” says Chancellor John F. Carney III. “Since our founding in 1870, this university has been one of the world’s leaders in preparing young men and women to solve society’s problems. Whether we were known as MSM, UMR or Missouri S&T, we have always had a reputation for excellence.”
Carney says that drive for excellence has been nurtured by the support of the university’s friends and alumni — a community that helped students and faculty flourish.
Last fall, Missouri S&T saw the highest enrollment for the campus in 20 years, with a total of 6,371 after four weeks of classes.
