The departments in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology have a proud history of preparing students for careers in biology, chemistry, geosciences, mathematics, statistics, industrial technology, engineering technology, telecommunications, graphic communications, engineering and physics. The programs of the College are exceptionally strong because of our talented, dedicated, student-oriented faculty.

Graduate degrees offered by the College of Science, Engineering and Technology are Master of Arts in geoscience and mathematics; Master of Science in biology, chemistry, management of technology, geosciences, mathematics and water science; and Master of Arts in Teaching in mathematics. The college also offers courses in support of the Master of Arts in Education.

The college's faculty are recognized scholars whose state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research is funded by agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. Like some of the finest liberal arts colleges in the country, we use our research program to enhance the learning environment for our undergraduate and graduate students. It is our belief that students learn science, mathematics, engineering, and technology best by doing REAL work in these areas. To this end, some Murray State students have the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty trying to solve some of the most interesting questions facing the scientific community today. Our students, both undergraduate and graduate, have published the results of their research in national journals and presented their work at regional and national conferences. In other cases, students at Murray State have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience through our co-op program. These kinds of experiences give our graduates the edge they need when applying for graduate school, professional school or, when entering the job market.

Murray State's designation as a Commonwealth Center of Excellence for Reservoir Research and the Program of Distinction in Telecommunication Systems Management adds to our distinctiveness both in the state and in the national and international academic communities.

There is little question that our academic program is different from those you will find at many universities. It is because of this difference that the College of Science, Engineering and Technology received a $1.5 million award from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, identifying our pre-medical program as one of the premier programs in the country. The Hughes award is one of the most sought after recognitions of academic excellence presented in the academic community today.

Our faculty are here to assist all our students, providing extra challenge or extra help as needed. The College's legacy of offering the very best in undergraduate and graduate instruction continues
to be our top priority. Our faculty continuously review and revise our curricula to help ensure that our programs are preparing all our students for today and tomorrow's careers.

Associate degree programs in the college are closely related to the Kentucky Tech Prep education initiative. Graduates and transfer students from technical, community and junior colleges are invited to continue their education in our upper-division baccalaureate degree programs.

Programs and Facilities

Program of Distinction in Telecommunication Systems Management. The telecommunications field, which incorporates systems and networks of leading-edge technologies such as fiber optic systems, satellites, wireless, telephony and cable, is rapidly changing and growing. The changes taking place in this field are dramatically influencing how individuals and institutions communicate and how they conduct business. Technological advances in the telecommunications area have profoundly affected government, retail, finance, health care, education, industry and entertainment sectors. Murray State's exciting new program in telecommunications systems management is helping prepare our graduates to become the leaders in this important emerging field.

Center of Excellence for Reservoir Research. Murray State University hosts one of the five designated Centers of Excellence in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. With funding support from agencies like the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Tennessee Valley Authority and the Kentucky Department for Natural Resources, Murray State's research program in ecosystem sciences is both nationally and internationally recognized.

Three distinct components make up the Center: the Hancock Biological Station (HBS), the Mid-America Remote sensing Center (MARC), and the Chemical Analysis Laboratory (CAL). The Center's primary research focus is long-term reservoir studies, principally on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. Center expertise is also available for analyzing environmental problems associated with other ecosystems in the region.

The Center for Reservoir Research provides outstanding research opportunities for scientists from around the world to study the region's unique environment. The Center also provides Murray State University undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to engage in hands-on research with faculty who are at the vanguard of ecosystem science.

Mid-America Remote sensing Center. Since the late 1970's when Murray State was declared the official NASA Landsat technology transfer agent, the Mid-America Remote sensing Center has distinguished itself as the premier remote sensing/geographic information center for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. MARC associates have educated students from all over the world in applications of space-age technology. In addition, MARC faculty and staff, using state-of-the-art image processing hardware and software, have conducted numerous resource management projects throughout the region for government as well as private sector groups. MARC also serves as a "clearinghouse" for geographically

College of Science, Engineering and Technology
referenceable data bases for the Center of Excellence, with MARC associates coordinating the design and implementation of an interactive automated geographic information system (GIS) for Kentucky Lake and its surrounding environments.

Hancock Biological Station. A year-round research and teaching facility located on beautiful Kentucky Lake, the HBS is one of the finest centers of its kind in the Midwest. HBS acts as the field research focal point for the Center of Excellence for Reservoir Research and for the Ecological Consortium of Mid-America. The facilities, which include both faculty and student housing, are available year-round to all scientists interested in ecosystem research. Hancock Biological Station contains state-of-the-art laboratories for aquatic chemistry, scanning electron microscopy, ecology, wildlife and fisheries. A full-time technical staff operates the facilities. Field-oriented classes at the station attract students from around the nation. A wide variety of formal classes are offered each summer. These may include ecology, ornithology, limnology, field botany, stream ecology, reservoir ecology, scanning electron microscopy and vertebrate ecology. Independent research topics provide opportunities for individualized instruction and close interactions with researchers. Classes are open to undergraduates, graduate students, teachers and others interested in enhancing their knowledge of ecology, ecosystems and the natural environment.

Chemical Analysis Laboratory. The Chemical Analysis Laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation enabling high-quality instruction in environmental analytical chemistry at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Chemical Analysis Laboratory is a major contributor to the Center of Excellence research through its provision of chemical analyses for environmental chemistry, ecotoxicological, trace element and acid deposition studies. In addition, it offers regional laboratory service for industries, institutions and individuals in west Kentucky, the greater Ohio Valley region and beyond in fulfillment of its regional economic service role.

The College of Science, Engineering and Technology enjoys excellent facilities in the Martha Layne Collins Center, Hugh L. Oakley Applied Science Building, Blackburn Science Building and several off-campus sites. Also, the Commonwealth of Kentucky has approved the construction of a new science complex at Murray State University. The first phase of this exciting new teaching and research facility is the Biological Science building, which opened in fall of 2004.

Department of Industrial and Engineering Technology
263A Collins Center
270-762-3392

Chair: Danny Claiborne. Faculty: Benson, Claiborne, Djassemi, Duff, Greer, Horwood, Jordan, Kellie, Kemp, Magee, Palmer, Schneiderman, Siebold, Tubbs, Weatherly, Whitaker, Yarali, Zirbel.

The Department of Industrial and Engineering Technology offers associate and baccalaureate programs. Also offered are a technical minor and a master of science degrees.

Graduates from the Department of Industrial and Engineering Technology are prepared to succeed in a modern industrial environment. Typical positions within industrial and engineering applications include manufacturing and processes, construction and public works, computer systems and electronic systems, graphic communications, environmental management, pollution control, telecommunications, technical sales and management. Graduates fulfill management and supervisory positions, in addition to design, maintenance, and regulatory positions.

The department supports the university mission through the following services: (1) technical education to meet the needs of MSU students; (2) programs for non-traditional students; and (3) consulting and regional service for schools, industry and government agencies.

All undergraduate programs in the department of industrial and engineering technology are required to obtain on-the-job experience. The experience can occur via cooperative work/study, internships, summer employment or other methods which fulfill program requirements.

Engineering Technology Accreditation
The Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC/ABET) accredits Murray State programs in civil and construction engineering technology.

Engineering Registration (PE)
Students in TAC/ABET accredited programs within the department are encouraged to seek professional engineering (PE) registration and are provided assistance in preparing for the fundamentals of engineering (FE) registration examination, the first phase of becoming a professional engineer. The FE examination is available to IET graduates in numerous states; however, current Kentucky law prohibits TAC/ABET program graduates from seeking registration. Therefore, individual state boards should be contacted for eligibility requirements.

Engineering Technology
The Engineering Technology programs are: Architectural Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering Technology, Construction Engineering Technology, Electromechanical Engineering Technology and Environmental Engineering Technology.

•Architectural Engineering Technology
A baccalaureate degree in architectural engineering technology provides students with backgrounds in architectural design, computer aided drafting, building structures and structural design, steel and concrete structures, surveying and site planning, and construction estimating. Potential employers include architectural firms, construction (design/build) companies, consulting engineering
firms, state and federal governments, municipalities, materials suppliers, and utilities. Architectural engineering technologists are educated in the process of taking a project from the drawing board to the completed structure. Working together with architects and engineers, they assist in producing drawings and specifications for major construction projects. Architectural engineering technology prepares graduates for careers in architectural design, planning, development, and construction as well as technical or sales positions in a variety of manufacturing organizations associated with the building industry. An architectural engineering technology graduate seeking registration/licensure as an architect would usually pursue a Master of Architecture degree, typically requiring two or three years of additional study.

•Civil Engineering Technology
A baccalaureate degree in civil engineering technology provides students with backgrounds in the design of steel and concrete structures, surveying, soil mechanics and foundations, construction materials, and engineering mechanics. Potential employers include construction companies, consulting engineering and architectural firms, state and federal governments, municipalities, testing laboratories, surveying firms, utilities, and materials suppliers.

The civil engineering technology program prepares graduates for careers in design (working with a team of engineers or architects in the preparation of engineering or architectural design documents), construction (as a field engineer, project engineer, or surveyor), or technical sales. If the student seeks to attain professional engineering licensure, Murray State offers the first three years of a 3 + 1 civil engineering program articulated with the civil engineering program at the University of Louisville. Additionally, an associate degree in civil engineering technology may be obtained from Murray State University.

•Construction Engineering Technology
A baccalaureate degree in construction engineering technology provides students with experience in construction, estimating, project management, scheduling, surveying, building structures, construction materials, and engineering mechanics. The curriculum stresses the application of technical knowledge, construction methods, problem-solving ability, and communication skills toward the completion of large-scale construction projects. Career opportunities for the construction-engineering technologist are as diverse as the industry. Potential employers include construction companies, general contractors, subcontractors, construction equipment and materials suppliers, testing laboratories, governments, industrial companies, and utilities.

The construction engineering technology program prepares graduates for supervisory and managerial careers within the construction industry. With a degree in construction engineering technology, the student will be qualified for an entry-level position as a construction project engineer, project manager, estimator, sales engineer, or field engineer.

•Electromechanical Engineering Technology
A baccalaureate degree in electromechanical engineering technology provides students with backgrounds in mechanical and electrical systems, fluid power, controls, and industrial networks. Electromechanical graduates work in manufacturing and process plant engineering, operation, maintenance, new product design, systems design, system analysis, and systems integration.

The electromechanical engineering technologist is a blend of mechanical and electrical engineering technology, computer science, information technology, and control systems. Graduates have broad application backgrounds in automation, electronics, data acquisition, controls, programming, and mechanical and electrical science principles. This allows students to understand the design and operation of systems found in the plant environment.

•Environmental Engineering Technology
A baccalaureate degree in environmental engineering technology provides graduates with backgrounds in municipal and industrial water and wastewater treatment system design and operations, water pollution control, solid and hazardous waste management and site remediation, industrial waste treatment and pollution prevention, air pollution control, and environmental regulatory compliance. Course work includes field and laboratory sampling and analysis plus design of pollution control systems. Depending on career goals, students are able to emphasize either environmental science or environmental health and safety in their choice of electives.

Graduates obtain careers with industries, environmental consultants and remediation contractors, municipalities, testing laboratories, state or federal government agencies, and chemical manufacturing corporations.

Telecommunications Systems Management

Telecommunications systems are networks of leading-edge technologies such as fiber optic systems, satellites, wireless, telephony, and cable, which are connected to computers that allow organizations and individuals throughout business and industry to communicate instantaneously around the world. Telecommunications systems provide the architectural structure for such activities as electronic commerce, electronic banking, video teleconferencing, distance learning, telemedicine, data interchange, on-demand video, and a host of other traditional and new uses for business and industry.

The Baccalaureate program provides students specialization options within the curriculum. Students in the Baccalaureate program will have the insight and ability to function in all areas of Telecommunications Systems Management (TSM) but will choose a program emphasis that will support the aspect of management which interests them most - the physical system and its components, the software that drives the system, or the business structure and operations that depend on the system. In addition, they will be prepared to move on to the Master of Science in Telecommunications Systems Management if they so choose.

The Associate of Applied Science Degree and the Bachelor of Science Degree in Telecommunications Systems Management are interdisciplinary programs drawing upon the strengths of the College of Business and Public Affairs and the College of Science, Engineering and Technology. These programs which are jointly administered by the two colleges (see page 57 in the College of Business and Public Affairs section) provide students a unique opportunity to develop both technical expertise and management expertise in this dynamic field.

Due to the dynamic nature of the field of telecommunications, new courses may be developed that may require substitution for existing courses in the program.

The objectives of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics are:
• to prepare its graduates for careers in science, business, research, industry and/or teaching;
• to continue its active involvement in the larger mathematical community through research and other scholarship;
• to provide students with the mathematical skills required for success in a wide variety of other programs within the university;
• to serve a major role in the University Studies of students; and
• to provide leadership and service in strengthening mathematics education in our service region and beyond.

The department offers a major in mathematics, an area in mathematics with secondary certification, a major in mathematics with secondary certification, an area in applied mathematics, and an area in mathematics with a pre-MBA option. In any of these programs the student will learn mathematics as a fundamental discipline and as an essential tool in most other disciplines. Mathematics is also quite useful as a minor or second major. Additionally, the common awareness that mathematics is a substantial subject will enhance the prospects of any student who demonstrates a facility with the material.

Graduates with a major have gone on to careers in teaching, science, and industry. Some have improved their entry level prospects via graduate study at Murray State and/or in nationally known Ph.D. programs.

The area in applied mathematics will prepare the student for a career in business, industry, government or academics. The area consists of a core of applied mathematics courses and a 18-hour option in a related field. Each option contains further mathematical training, computer programming experience, and a broad study of a discipline which illustrates applications of mathematics. The program is intentionally flexible and, by its interdisciplinary nature, will provide the student with an understanding and experience in modeling and solving relative problems.
