We encourage our students to discover their potential while expanding fundamental scientific knowledge and developing new technologies. We prepare our graduates by providing academic programs in STEM disciplines to meet the challenges of a complex world.
Scientists and mathematicians challenge accepted truths and seek new discoveries. The College of Science encourages students to leverage this passion and prepares world leaders who will expand the frontiers of science and mathematics and their application in making our communities and our world better.
Kha interned with Oculus testing their next generation of VR cameras, which have the potential to aid law enforcement and impact learning in schools. The internship turned into a full-time job, and Kha plans to work on enhancing the VR experience.
Tina Goudreau Collison
Professor of Chemistry
A complicated vocabulary and a lack of dedicated signs in American Sign Language makes Organic Chemistry a challenge for deaf and hard of hearing students. Collision worked with interpreters to develop new ASL signs, leading to profound learning improvements for her students.
By working on a faculty-guided research project, Pannullo has gained hands-on research experience to pursue a future in regenerative medicine. It’s one way Pannullo is putting experiential learning to work.
