Science, Math & Engineering

Science, Math & Engineering majors are interested in how the physical world works and use critical thinking to problem solve and improve the world. Graduates work in professional environments from small offices to large corporations, government agencies, academic or medical institutions, and field sites.

Students begin their education with preparatory courses in math, biology, chemistry and physics. Then, they select coursework in a chosen area of focus. The range of  occupations in each field is broad, ranging from a technician to a theoretical researcher.
