Bachelor of Science Degree, Option 2: Product Research and Development
The Innovative Technologies program at the University of Central Missouri prepares students for professional careers in business. It is intended for students who do not have an associate in science or an associate in applied science degree. By combining carefully selected technical courses in production management, product research and development, or robotics and automation, the program prepares students to function in technical and decision-making situations. Employers hire technology graduates because they are productive problem solvers and decision-makers. Starting salaries for technology graduates with industry experience are among the highest for all majors at UCM.
Student Organization of Construction Managers (SOCM), and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) relate to this degree program.
UCM's Office of Career Services assists students seeking internships, summer and campus jobs, part-time, and full-time employment. They also provide assistance with writing cover letters and resumes and offer a career library, mock interviews, and career counseling. The office also serves representatives of business, government, industry, and education who are looking for prospective employees. Over 700 employers visit UCM each year to conduct interviews on campus. Career Services may be reached at 660-543-4985 or email@example.com. Visit their website at ucmo.edu/career/students/.
Scholarships & Financial Aid
UCM's Student Financial Services Office offers nearly $7 million in merit-based scholarships each year to students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, special talents, or potential in a specific field of study. In addition, various industry scholarships are available, such as from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers Foundation. The primary mission of the office is to help students and their families identify and apply for appropriate financial resources to help pay the educational and living expenses they'll incur to attend UCM.
