Dean’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering.

At SCE, we believe that celebrating science and elevating imagination are the keys to success. Our mission is to provide exceptional educational, research and extracurricular experiences within computing and engineering. We’ve strategically designed the program to create small classes with low student-to-faculty ratios that allow for individual attention. This personalized education feels more like a small liberal arts college than a major urban university.

But make no mistake – we love our urban location. Kansas City is one of the nation’s premier engineering cities. The proximity allows for partnerships that lead to internships and employment for our students. Those connections also allow industry leaders to serve as adjunct professors, guest lecturers and mentors.

Whether you’re a freshman just starting out or the established professional staying up-to-date, our faculty, staff and administration are committed to helping you get there. Join us.

Sincerely,
Kevin Z. Truman, Ph.D., F.ASCE

Vice Provost and Dean
