School of Science & Engineering
In our increasingly complex world, the fields of science, technology, engineering and math — known colloquially as the STEM fields — have never been more important than they are now.
The School of Science and Engineering is vibrant and growing. It comprises eight academic departments and offers more than a dozen undergraduate majors and a variety of master’s degrees.
Our goal is to combine interdisciplinary study and knowledge with hands-on experience. We want our graduates to explore the world and engage in it. We equip our students with the information and analytical skills they need to understand and address change and its challenges.
