School of Science & Engineering

The world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)  has never been more important than it is now, in our time of abundant discovery, controversial experimentation, and the rapid-fire development of new technologies.

Our goal is to integrate practical experience with interdisciplinary study and the acquisition of academic knowledge. This ensures that our graduates have every opportunity to become effective, compelling leaders in their fields—able to address change as it happens in technology and society.

The School of Science and Engineering encompasses nine academic departments and offers over a dozen undergraduate majors and six masters degrees.  We are vibrant and growing, with a history of excellence in scholarship and practical applications.
