The School of Science and Technology (SST) provides innovative programs in science, math and technology. No matter what your major, you will always be challenged to think outside the box – and outside the lab.
All SST majors are challenged to demonstrate mastery of their chosen field through faculty-mentored research projects or internships. It's a requirement. But it's also led to fascinating learning opportunities. Past projects have focused on such topics as air quality, the environmental impact of kudzu and the development of web-based animation as a teaching tool.
The SST believes in using smart technology to help students grasp new material and develop critical-thinking skills. That commitment has led to many teaching innovations – including the award-winning Mobile Learning Project, which incorporates hand-held digital technology into the teaching of organic chemistry. In the end, however, it's our faculty's dedication to student success that makes the SST a great place to learn.
SST Newsletter: Eureka!
