Teaching and research in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences (CBAS) are central to the  mission and success of Middle Tennessee State University, and the college will provide a transformative and experiential education to all MTSU students. The college will inspire, support, and mentor students, staff, and faculty to think critically and creatively, to confront challenges boldly, and to be ambitious. In implementing its mission, the college will

  1. through a broad range of challenging undergraduate programs and distinctive graduate degrees offer preparation to students for leadership and successful careers in higher education positions as well as scientific and technical fields in industry, teaching, government, and health services;
  2. employ a diverse faculty community of exceptional teacher-scholars, nationally and internationally recognized for their teaching and research; and
  3. use its resources to help address scientific, environmental, educational, and health-related challenges in the middle Tennessee area, through the nation, and across the globe.

Microanalysis and Imaging Center (MIMIC)

The MTSU Microanalysis and Imaging Center (MIMIC) is a core microscopy center jointly operated by the College of Basic and Applied Sciences and the College of Graduate Studies.

Training in electron microscopy (EM) techniques, including scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and x-ray analysis is obtained by a trio of laboratory courses that are offered every year to undergraduate and graduate students: Scanning Electron Microscopy, BIOL 4290/6290; Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis, BIOL 4360/5360; Transmission Electron Microscopy, BIOL 4270/6410; and Practical Training in Microanalysis Techniques IMIC 4820/5820. The courses teach sample preparation, instrument theory, and hands on training on the electron microscopes and ancillary equipment.
