The University of Mississippi

Graduates in STEM fields

As a leader in engineering and the applied sciences, Ole Miss will address crucial national, state, and local needs to grow our science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-educated workforce and citizenry with the new Jim and Thomas Duff Center for Science and Technology Innovation. The goal to increase the number of STEM graduates, especially among underrepresented groups, will be met by engaging in innovative teaching, hands-on experiences, and group projects to make science come alive.

For example, our Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence — the only program of its kind in the nation — brings together students in accountancy, engineering, and business to take both academic and hands-on courses. It exemplifies breaking down barriers, building critical thinking, broadening understanding, and teaching versatility.
