You’ll be well prepared for professional schooling and certifications, and a career in this in-demand field.

Outside the classroom, you can build on your experience through student clubs and organizations, or undergraduate research to help you build a competitive application for your advanced schooling application. Plus, we offer a wide variety of campus support programs like STEM Living and Learning Communities, mentoring, and others that allows you to create a student experience unique to you and your goals.
