ABOUT

At the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering (SCE), students are challenged to meld innovative thinking with technical principles. As Kansas City’s only accredited college of computer science and engineering, we are proud to serve the metropolitan region and beyond by providing a high-quality education at an affordable price.

Students work with faculty who are recognized nationally and internationally for their contributions. Graduates benefit from our location in Kansas City, one of the largest engineering and computing communities in the United States.

Undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs offer a comprehensive education combining theory and fundamental practice leaving SCE students fully prepared for 21st-century careers. Our continuing education programming serves working professionals both in and outside their workplace.

SCE is home to approximately 1,700 students and 150 faculty and staff. We call Flarsheim Hall, located on the UMKC Volker Campus, home and are currently constructing a new Education and Research Center directly adjacent.

The SCE is made up of two departments: Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CME) and Computer Science Electrical Engineering (CSEE).
