Diversity Programs Office

Just launched on April 25, 2014, the College of Engineering Diversity Programs Office has a new website! Check it out!

Featured Fellows

Featured Fellows is a new website for the MSU Graduate School that was launched on February 25, 2014. With a responsive design and "Metro Style" home page, visitors can easily search the site by a named fellow, a fellowship or by the college. There are also highlights for recent news, a news archives listing and links to seven social media sites for the MSU Graduate School.

The Honors College

The new Honors College website launched January 3, 2014. Formerly HTML, the new site is built with the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) and has a rotating homepage feature along with six colorful highlights for News, Events, Directory, Honors College Profiles, Advising and Support the College. Along with the rotating feature, the news and events sections are a few of the Drupal content types, providing an easy way for the site editor to add new content while keeping the site fresh and up-to-date.

Honors College Debate Website

The Honors College Debate Team and Spartan Debate Institute website launched on November 1, 2013. Formerly HTML, the new site was built with the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) and is a unique combination of a splash page with a rotating feature along with links to each of the two main site landing pages, "Debate" and "Spartan Debate Institute" (SDI). Each one of the main landing pages also has its own rotating feature with photos of the past winning teams and high school summer programs. The Debate site includes a news feed, upcoming events and blog, along with a photo gallery and a historical archive. The SDI site highlights the various 2-4 week-long camps, the current institute faculty listing, FAQs, and an online application and payment system.

Mechanical Engineering

With an upgraded version of the Drupal Content Management System, the Mechanical Engineering department website has a new design and functionality.  Now with a responsive design theme, the new site can be viewed easily on a wide range of devices - anything from desktop computer monitors to tablets and mobile phones.

The new site homepage has a large rotating feature, news feeds for both general and research-related news items, as well as interchangeable photo banners across the top of the inside landing pages.

Support for Students

The University Scholarships & Fellowships Development Office, who works on behalf of the Graduate Office of the Dean to create fellowships for graduate students, has recently launched their new website, “Support for Students,” on June 6, 2013.

Formerly a combination of HTML and WordPress, DECS built the new site on one user-friendly platform using the Drupal Content Management System.

The homepage has a large accordion slider feature, latest YouTube videos, and “Social Buzz” links to their five social media webpages. The homepage also features their current news, which is set up in a blog-style format allowing visitors to see posted dates, related tags and a place to leave comments. The site also has an extensive resource library and a “frequently asked questions” listing.

College of Engineering

The College of Engineering launched a new website on October 6, 2012. The new site features rotating photo banners, news feeds, and videos on the homepage, as well as on the Research landing page. The new site also has social media sharing, mobile QR codes, and a robust faculty and staff directory. Check it out!

BAE - Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering

The Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering department website was recently converted from a standard HTML site to a Drupal Content Management System (CMS) website, and designed with the MSU branding standards in mind. 

The new site features a rotating slideshow on the home page, as well as sections for news, quick links and two events calendars. One calendar is specifically for BAE department events only, and the other is tied to the College of Engineering calendar, pulling related department events via an RSS feed.  The site is also tied to the Engineering Faculty and Staff directory, which allows the department to add or make changes to the profiles, while updating both the Engineering and BAE department listings at the same time.

National/International Fellowships & Scholarships

DECS worked with the Honors College / NIFS staff to design and build a new site, replacing their former HTML site with Drupal, a content management system. The new site has the current MSU branding standards, a large photo feature from the latest university scholarship recognition dinner, a recent award winners listing, popular FAQs, and news. The home page also highlights upcoming events, which pulls from an extensive list of fellowship and scholarship campus deadlines. This site was launched at the end of October 2011.
