At MSOE, we have a different way of thinking, acting and existing. It's a way of life that our faculty, students, staff and alumni exhibit each day which inspires us to make an impact within our communities - it's the MSOE Mindset. 

What is the MSOE Mindset?

It is an assimilation of the Servant-Leader Mindset, the Entrepreneurial Mindset, and MSOE’s new strategic plan, mission, vision, values and commitments. The MSOE Mindset identifies graduates as leaders of character; responsible professionals; passionate learners; and value creators.

Faculty will focus on helping students develop the MSOE Mindset throughout their educational journey. By leveraging its industry partnerships, incorporating high-impact educational practices throughout campus, enhancing educational programs to deepen experiential learning, MSOE will ensure that all students use real-world projects in their field of study.

“While the articulation of the MSOE Mindset is new, the attributes that comprise this mindset have been visible on campus for a long time. There are faculty members who are successfully teaching the servant-leader mindset and others who are successfully teaching the entrepreneurial mindset. By fostering the MSOE Mindset throughout campus, we are preparing our graduates for the ever-changing world.”
