Learn. Succeed. Have Fun!

Experiential Learning is the foundation of a broad-based Missouri S&T education. 

The Student Design and Experiential Learning Center (SDELC) serves as the business incubator and support center for fourteen multi-disciplinary student-managed design teams.

The SDELC is housed in the Kummer Student Design Center, a new facility that provides design team members with advanced computer design labs and software, a complete manufacturing and testing center, business offices and logistical assets, along with the technical, marketing, communication and fundraising support necessary to prepare students for successful careers even before graduation.

Team membership is open to, and encouraged of, S&T students of all academic majors, not just engineering.  Team-based learning blends traditional classroom instruction with the critical “outside-the-box” thinking necessary to be successful in a fast-paced development project.

Design team participants enjoy:

  • 24-7 facility access

  • Strong faculty, staff, business and community support

  • Networking opportunities with employers and university competitors 

  • Specialized training

  • Global experience
