Mission of the McCoy School of Engineering
The McCoy School of Engineering supports the missions of the University and the College of Science and Mathematics by providing quality undergraduate education to students and professional expertise for local and regional industry, government agencies, and other educational entities. This is accomplished in the context of a four-year mechanical engineering program and a four-year manufacturing engineering technology program, along with major design experiences which prepare graduates for successful professional careers and the pursuit of advanced degrees in engineering or other related fields.
Midwestern State University (MSU) offers four-year undergraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering (founded in 2004) and in Manufacturing Engineering Technology (founded in 1985). These programs are housed in the McCoy School of Engineering. Students pursuing either the Mechanical Engineering degree or the Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree enjoy small class sizes (typically, 15 students/class), a personalized learning environment which is highly conducive to learning, and state-of-the-art laboratories which house up-to-date equipment and software tools which allow students to gain real-world experience. The engineering faculty members are experts in their respective field, and are always eager to help students set their goals, draft plans to reach these goals, and acquire the necessary knowledge and training to achieve these goals. While most classes are offered during the daytime, several classes are offered in the evening to accommodate those students who work during the day and can only attend school after work. In addition, scholarships are available to deserving students, based on financial need and ACT/SAT scores or GPA.
The Mechanical Engineering program was first implemented in the fall semester of 2004 and is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET, Inc.) The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program was created in 1985 has been accredited since 1990 by the Technology Accreditation Commission (TAC) of ABET.
