Introduction: International Students at Murray State University's Jesse D. Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology

Jesse D. Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Murray State University has several excellent graduate and undergraduate programs for international students. The degree programs are accredited by the Applied Science Accreditation Commission of ABET. There are more than forty faculty members in this program who have advanced degrees in mechanical, electrical, civil, environmental, and biosystems engineering, as well as physics, telecommunications, industrial design and architecture. 

The College of Science, Engineering and Technology offers several great programs:

The biology program at Murray State allows students to complete a diverse number of programs, including General Biology, Pre-Medicine, Molecular Biology, Fisheries and Aquatic Biology, Wildlife Biology, and a variety of curricula to support careers in Pharmacy, Dentistry and Physical Therapy. Students can also earn graduate degrees. Students from Murray State perform well on the MCAT test due to the rigorous curriculum. Students also have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art-equipment at locations like: the Hancock Biological Station (HBS), a premiere biological station on Kentucky Lake; the Mid-America Remote Sensing Center, a satellite imaging lab; Chemical Services Laboratory; and the Center for Reservoir Research.

The chemistry programs at Murray State provide hands-on experience with modern experimental and computer-based techniques and instrumentation to prepare students to enter the industry or to enter professional programs. The department provides a creative and supportive atmosphere for faculty-mentored research and student-centered learning.

Students can earn graduate and/or undergraduate degrees in geosciences, which focus on spatial technologies as they relate to earth science, geoarchaeology, geographic information science and environmental geology. Students gain experience using modern equipment, participating in internships and conducting research. Students have access to the Murray State Archaeology Lab and the Mid-America Remote sensing Center (MARC).

This institute includes programs in engineering, engineering technology, telecommunications systems management, physics, industrial technology and design or applied engineering and technology management. It offers bachelors and masters degrees, and gives students hands-on experience in the field.

Mathematics and statistics are used in many different fields, and classes in this program engage a large mathematical community through scholarship and research. It provides students with an understanding of mathematical ideas, the ability to reason mathematically, analyze real world problems with mathematical techniques and continue to read, learn and communicate mathematics.

Students at Murray State can study graduate- and undergraduate-level occupational safety and health. The program provides a broad educational background in mathematics, science, technology and management with occupational safety and health professionals in state, regional, national and international levels in industry, government and/or academia.

The Jesse D. Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology has several excellent programs that are very popular for international students. These programs give students access to skilled faculty and state-of-the-art equipment. This blog will document some of the exciting things that graduate and undergraduate international students are doing.
