Schmid College of Science and Technology
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.

+-School of Computational Sciences

In keeping with the desire to forge an ivy league-caliber university with the spirit of an intimate liberal arts institution, the School of Computational Sciences has recruited some of the top scientific minds from around the world to give constant, in-depth instruction to both undergraduate and graduate students. With a large emphasis on faculty and student-driven research ranging from signal processing to population genetics, working faculty scientists teach classes dealing with such real-world questions as whether or not the future affects the past at the quantum level, or how best to mine data pertaining to atmospheric pollution.

+-School of Earth and Environmental Sciences

Our interdisciplinary School of Earth and Environmental Sciences incorporates faculty with expertise in chemistry, biology, environmental science, food science, earth science and remote sensing. Faculty conduct internationally recognized research while maintaining a small school level of faculty-student attention and interaction in their mission to teach undergraduates and graduates about how to analyze, understand, and ultimately sustain and conserve earth's interconnected systems.
