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 geography, graphic communications technology 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 help 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 Services Laboratory (CSL). 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 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 Services Laboratory. The Chemical Services 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 Services 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 facility at Murray State University. The anticipated completion date of the first phase of this exciting new teaching and research facility is the fall of 2004.

These programs are designed to prepare students for professional or graduate work in the life sciences. Curricula provide students with a basic core of science courses plus advanced biology courses in their particular field of interest. The department also offers a two-year, pre-professional program in pharmacy and a minor in biology.

The Department of Biological Sciences has offices, classrooms, laboratories, and research facilities on the second and third floors of the Blackburn Science Building. The department also has two off-campus resources which are utilized in field-oriented teaching and research programs. One of these, Murphy's Pond, is a 300-acre preserve in Hickman County with one of the few remaining cypress swamps in western Kentucky. The other, Hancock Biological Station, is a modern classroom/laboratory complex located on the western shore of Kentucky Lake 17 miles from the main campus. The station is ideally located in an area of diverse aquatic habitats and is the focal point for the Center of Excellence for Reservoir Research, dedicated to the study of Kentucky and Barkley Reservoirs.

Chair: Donald Bennett. Faculty: Bell, Bennett, Donnelly, Fairbanks, K. Fister, R. Fister, Gibson, Goodell, Hughes, Ivansic, Jones, Lewis, McCarthy, Mecklin, Pearson, Porter, Pritchett, Roach, Siefker, Thome, Zhang.

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, and an area in applied mathematics. 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 21-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.
