Engineering Education in Missouri

Missouri has a rich academic history with several technical, community, public, and private colleges across the Show-Me state. There are 26 public technical schools, community colleges, and primarily two-year degree-granting institutions in Missouri that offer engineering certificates and associate’s programs.

To become a licensed Professional Engineer in Missouri, you must complete your education from an engineering program that is accredited by the ABET. In Missouri, these programs are the University of Missouri- Columbia, University of Missouri- Kansas City, University of Missouri-St. Louis, Missouri S&T, Washington University, St. Louis University and Southeast Missouri State University.

There are a number of programs that include Bachelor and Master degree level programs in Missouri that are not accredited by the ABET. If you earn your degree from these schools you will need to obtain a Master’s degree in engineering from a school that is ABET accredited or accumulate 20 years of engineering experience that is satisfactory to the Missouri Board for Architects, Professional Engineers, Professional Land Surveyors and Landscape Architects before seeking licensure as a Professional Engineer.

The state universities with programs in engineering that are NOT accredited include Missouri Southern State University, Missouri State University, Missouri Western State University, and Northwest Missouri State University. Non-system public universities in Missouri with engineering programs include Lincoln University and the University of Central Missouri.

There are also three other private universities that offer undergraduate engineering programs, including Park University, the Ranken Technical College, Southwest Baptist University, and Washington University at St. Louis. St. Louis Community College is one of the state’s largest community colleges providing an engineering program.[i]
