Abdellah Ahmidouch, Interim Dean

The College of Science and Technology combines departments formerly located in the School of Technology and the College of Arts and Sciences. The new college will increase the production of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates thereby fulfilling the national and statewide demand for qualified STEM professionals. The primary focus of the College of Science and Technology is to prepare individuals who are uniquely proficient in the application of basic science and technology. Thus, faculty of the college are interested in what industry, business and education want and need. As a result, our goal is to educate the whole person. Students develop not only their technical skills but their personality, cooperativeness, innovativeness, concern for the organization, and communications skills. Graduates of the school are prepared to meet the new and emerging challenges of a modern high technological society.

ACCREDITATION

The undergraduate programs are as follows: applied engineering technology, construction management, electronics technology, environmental health and safety, graphic communication systems, and motorsports technology. These programs are accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).
