A leader in teaching, research and discovery, applying interdisciplinary problem-solving to global issues.

A Message from Dr. L. Andrew Lyon, dean of the Schmid College of Science and Technology

At its core, Science is about understanding the physical world around us, while Technology is about applying that knowledge.  In the Schmid College of Science and Technology, we have made it our mission to mentor and grow the next generation of leaders through a curriculum that develops outstanding problem solving skills in the context of the grand, interdisciplinary challenges facing us today.  The leaders we train will thereby be well-prepared to push the boundaries of our knowledge and drive technological innovation.

The Schmid College of Science & Technology educates students who will become tomorrow's scientists or who aspire to careers in science and technology. We offer traditional majors as well as undergraduate and graduate degree programs that emphasize the application of computational techniques to problems in the natural sciences, that approach sciences through an interdisciplinary perspective, and that connect the abstract understanding of the environment to present day environmental concerns linked to the watershed, climate change, and natural and man-made disasters. Our faculty have active research agendas through which they mentor students in the pursuit of their own research and scholarship.
