UMKC has over 1,500 international students from more than 70 countries. Many have found their career specialty at the School of Computing and Engineering. The school’s academic rigor ensures international students receive the highest-quality training at an affordable price. Graduates leave the engineering and computing programs positioned for high-quality, well-paying careers.

When it comes to choosing a U.S. university, location means everything. Kansas City is one of the top engineering and computing communities in the country. It is home to hundreds of firms of all sizes, which means ample opportunities for practical training during your studies and after graduation.

International students feel safe and welcome in Kansas City, a major urban area with professional sports teams, museums, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The residents of Kansas City are known for being friendly and outgoing.

You can expect to encounter that same spirit of welcome within the SCE program. The exceptional faculty have close ties to Kansas City’s thriving computer science and engineering firms. Don’t be surprised when business leaders from Cerner, Black & Veatch, Garmin International and Honeywell stop by campus to talk with students or to partner on projects.

SCE faculty and staff reach out to students throughout their academic careers. All SCE students receive academic advising to make sure they register for the right courses and remain on track for graduation. UMKC’s International Student Affairs Office works to make the transition smooth for new international students and provides support during their time here. UMKC provides academic support with peer-assisted study sessions at the Academic Support and Mentoring Office.
