Bagley College of Engineering COVID-19 Guidelines DETAILS
January 1, 2021
I am so excited for this New Year, and for you to join the Bagley and Bulldog family! Here are some updates for the month of January: The Housing application and FAFSA are open! Don’t delay in getting those taken care of.
As the New Year gets under way, I want to encourage you to enjoy every minute as you prepare to graduate and continue on to college. We can’t wait to have you on campus! Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you.
“Researchers in the Swalm School of Chemical Engineering are leading a statewide research program through the Center for Emergent Molecular Optoelectronics.”
Dr. Jason Keith
"I saw MSU as the place with the best engineering school and most welcoming people on campus.”
Meet Junior Computer Engineering student from Jackson, Mississippi, Reece Davis.
Reece chose to study Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University because of his love for computers and drive to pursue knowledge in automation. In his words, he chose MSU and the Bagley College of Engineering because “My sisters go to MSU, and I saw MSU as the place with the best engineering school and most welcoming people on campus.”
Reece is very involved on campus. Not only is he a member of the Engineering Recruitment Leaders, a student organization that serves the Dean of the College of Engineering’s office in meeting with prospective students and families to answer questions about the student experience, but he is also an Access Mentor, a member of the Women’s Basketball Practice Team, a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity, and ACM. As you can see, MSU offers many different opportunities for students to be involved all across campus not just in the BCoE!
Here are a few fun facts from Reece:

Mississippi State engineers in the university’s Raspet Flight Research Laboratory are spearheading research that could make unmanned aircraft systems operational by the U.S. government as well as civilian aviation in icy conditions.
MSU is leading an icing system development and technology team in what the U.S. Department of Defense hopes will result in lightweight anti-icing systems, leading to certification for UAS to operate in forecasted icing conditions. The DOD recently awarded $5 million for this effort that also includes the university’s aerospace engineering department and several industry partners.
