The Bagley College of Engineering was created at MSU in 1902 as the School of Engineering. Named for MSU alumnus James Worth Bagley (EE, B.S. 1961; M.S. 1966) in 2002, the Bagley College of Engineering (BCoE) ranks in the top 100 (88th) engineering graduate programs and is listed in the U.S. News & World Report-America’s Best Graduate Schools.  BCoE Online programs are ranked 24th nationally by USNWR.  In fall 2016, graduate enrollment totaled 663 (318 M.S.; 345 Ph.D.).  In support of its strategic plan, the BCoE seeks to increase doctoral enrollment and direct-admits qualified B.S. graduates to doctoral programs.  The College is comprised of eight academic departments and offers 11 master’s degrees and 11 doctoral degrees.   Excellence in research is a high priority for BCoE faculty.  The College is comprised of tenure-track faculty members and research faculty who also play an active role in both teaching and research for graduate students. BCoE reported over $9.5 M in research expenditures in 2016 (excludes Computer Science). With several state-of-the-art research centers and laboratories to provide hands-on experience for master’s and doctoral students, excellence extends beyond the classroom offerings.  Information on BCoE research centers and laboratories may be accessed under General Information—Centers and Institutes in this publication.  The BCoE Strategic Plan also focuses on the placement of BCoE Engineering graduates with major multinational companies and top research universities.  BCoE is committed to a diverse student study body and seeks to enrich graduate education by providing a multiplicity of views and perspectives that enhance research, teaching, and the development of new knowledge.  Additional information about the Bagley College of Engineering is available at http://www.bagley.msstate.edu.
