Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T; formerly University of Missouri – Rolla)
Our educational focus is on a broad, rigorous education in all areas of electrical and computer engineering with significant experiential learning to generate outstanding professionals and leaders in engineering. The program provides students with a broader understanding of issues in engineering problem-solving at all levels and an appreciation for engineering as a profession. We’re well known for our practical, hands-on approach to solving problems. Our research funding comes from industrial partners, state government and federal agencies in many areas: power/energy systems, electromagnetic compatibility, advanced control, photonic/electronic sensors, wireless network and computational intelligence. Missouri S&T boasts one of the highest average starting salaries for graduates among US universities and has one of the country’s highest number of companies per graduating senior at its bi-annual career fair. The excellent opportunities for our graduates is just one of the reasons that S&T is regularly ranked among the top programs in terms of its return-on-investment.
Intelligent Microsystem Laboratory (iML)
Dr. Chang-Soo Kim’s Intelligent Microsystem Laboratory (iML), housed in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department, is devoted to accomplishing functional integration (on-chip intelligence) and structural integration (miniaturization) of advanced microsystems. The group conceptualizes novel microsystems for special needs, implement them with novel technologies and demonstrate the system performance. Current research topics are intelligent microsystems (microsensors, microactuators, and microfluidics) and their niche applications largely to biological, medical and environmental areas, including microsystems to monitor metabolites, study plant physiology and conduct environmental surveillance. The overarching goals of this exploration are to contribute to the global health issues and to secure our future sustainability. The iML provides highly interactive and interdisciplinary research environment by collaborating with experts in various fields to develop new research areas.
