Doctoral Dissertations

 

This collection contains dissertations written in partial fulfillment of the doctoral degree, from 1937 to the present.

The first doctoral degree was in Chemistry, awarded to Frank Joseph Zvanut; his dissertation was titled Pyrochemical changes in Missouri halloysite.. Zvanut had earned his Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering in 1932. Most recently, popular Ph.D. disciplines have included Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Geological Engineering and Petroleum Engineering.

Theses and dissertations previously submitted in print will be digitized with permission of the author or copyright holder. Missouri S&T Library and Learning Resources encourages graduates to provide this permission so that their work can reach the widest possible audience. If you would like to grant this permission, please use this Form or go to your dissertation in Scholars' Mine and click on the Share My Dissertation button. Theses and dissertations will be digitized as time allows and will not become immediately accessible.

More information on today’s graduate degree programs is available on the Missouri S&T website.
