Missouri University of Science & Technology, formerly the University of Missouri-Rolla, is one of the top technological research universities in the nation. Surrounded by Ozarks scenery (Rolla is about 100 miles west of St. Louis), the campus is accessible, safe and friendly. Known for its engineering programs, Missouri S&T also offers degrees in the sciences, liberal arts, humanities and business.... About 6,000 students are currently enrolled in classes, making Missouri S&T big enough to accommodate a diverse population but small enough for individuals to stand out.
The physics department has 19 full-time tenure-track faculty, and the university offers a generous benefits package.
