A universal degree
Mathematics is the language of our universe, providing a common link to all scientific and technological disciplines.
As a student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, you’ll learn to interpret, understand and solve global problems. Missouri S&T Mathematics and Statistics graduates have gone on to work for major companies like IBM, Texas Instruments, Chevron and Boeing. One distinguished graduate, Col. Tom Akers, Math’73, MS Math ’75, was a member of NASA’s December 1993 mission that successfully grappled and repaired the Hubble Space Telescope.
Our department has been recognized for our outstanding value among departments offering degrees in Applied Mathematics. Recently, College Factual rated us as the #2 Best Value in Applied Mathematics programs nationwide. Want to learn more about our programs? Contact our admissions office to schedule a campus visit.

A distinguished spot
Portraits of stately men and influential women dating back to the 19th century line the walls of the Missouri State Auditor’s office. Everything looks just as you’d expect in a political office – stately and refined. But right beside the volumes of the revised Missouri State Statutes sits a vintage postcard proudly declaring Rolla, Missouri, as “the home of the Missouri School of Mines.”
For current Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway, Rolla holds a special place not just on her bookshelf, but also in her memory. Galloway earned bachelor’s degrees in economics and applied mathematics from Missouri S&T in 2004. Last spring, when Gov. Jay Nixon appointed her as state auditor, Galloway became the first S&T graduate to hold executive office in the state of Missouri. [Read more]
