About the College of Science and Technology
The College of Science and Technology, formed on July 1, 2018, houses three academic units whose missions and academic programming are all focused on STEM fields.
The Department of Informatics and Engineering Systems, housed on the second floor of the Media Building, offers bachelor’s degrees in information management and systems, health informatics, engineering technology management, and advanced manufacturing management. A master’s degree in informatics is also offered. There is a CAHIIM-accredited degree option for the bachelor’s in information management and systems, and the engineering technology management bachelor’s degree is ABET-accredited.
The Division of Mathematics and Computer Science offers bachelor’s degrees in mathematics, computer science, and computer information systems. The computer science degree is ABET-accredited. In addition to a teaching computer lab, this unit also houses a networking lab and a Linux lab on the second floor of the GB Hodge Center.
The Division of Natural Sciences and Engineering offers bachelor’s degrees in biology and chemistry as well as general education and support courses in geology, astronomy, and physics. Students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions will find advising tracks in pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-pharmacy, pre-physician assistant, and pre-optometry as part of both biology and chemistry degrees. The Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry is approved by the American Chemical Society. There are also options for a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry and a concentration in forensic science. Cutting edge scientific equipment is used in both the teaching and research laboratories housed in the Smith Science Building.
