Experiential learning

Hands On Experience

At Missouri S&T, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ditch your desk and get out of the classroom. In fact, we implore you to. Every undergraduate student must have some sort of experiential learning experience before they graduate - whether that means participating on a design team or a club sports team, joining a student organization or doing research with renowned faculty. With so many opportunities, you’re sure to find something that interests you. And we’ll help!
