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.
Since Archimedes was first reported to use the word "Eureka!", it has been a word used to celebrate discovery. So, Eureka! was selected as the name for the SST's bi-annual newsletter. We invite you to download the current issue (PDF) and review the great things happening at SST. You may also subscribe to or unsubscribe from the Eureka! email list.
The School of Science and Technology offers majors in five subject areas:
In addition to pursuing an academic major, students may pursue a minor in the School of Science and Technology.
