In delivering on our Mission commitments, the School of MIME continues to invest our resources and demonstrate impact in the areas of highest importance to our stakeholders: Preparing the next generation of mechanical, industrial, manufacturing and energy systems engineering professionals; and performing leading-edge research that ensures a better future for our state, nation and world.
For evidence of our success in meeting these objectives, read on.
We educate our students as entrepreneurial, team-oriented, and work-ready graduates in their chosen disciplines.
Entrepreneurial: MIME graduates have a strong record of creating and transforming new companies, products and systems.
Team-Oriented: MIME students participate in teams that win national and international competitions.
Profession-Ready: In addition to their rigorous academic preparation, MIME undergraduates have many opportunities to develop their professional and applied engineering skills during their time at OSU.
We engage in collaborative, cutting-edge research that furthers Oregon’s prosperity, helps build a sustainable future, and enhances the lives of all members of the global community.
