Schmid College of Science and Technology is known for its extraordinary faculty, undergraduate and graduate programs, and students. Schmid College faculty combines a deep commitment to teaching and mentoring students with a passion for pursuing consequential, interdisciplinary research. Schmid College undergraduate and graduate programs emphasize learning science by doing science, applying new technologies and computational methodologies to 21st Century problems, and solving complex problems using multidisciplinary approaches. Schmid College students are at ease working in interdisciplinary teams and are intellectually curious problem solvers with excellent analytical skills.
Schmid College is home to several research centers that bring together top minds from across the globe to address issues related to wind currents and disease outbreaks, extreme weather and fire hazard, and climate change and food production, or to engage is basic research in mathematics and physics. I encourage you to link to each center from the Schmid College home page to explore the significant work produced by them.
Under the umbrella of Schmid College of Science and Technology are three schools, Computational Science, Crean School of Health and Life Sciences, and Earth and Environmental Sciences. I invite you to explore the college website to learn about each school’s teaching and research foci, the opportunities available to undergraduate and graduate students, and the host of exciting events and lectures scheduled for this academic year.Janeen Hill, Interim Dean
