College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

This program is housed within the College of STEM. The College prepares students to find creative solutions to problems. Curiosity and analysis merge, creating students ready to figure things out and then use that knowledge to make things better.

Associate Professor of the Department of Engineering and Technology

"As a teacher, my goal is to help students develop a fundamental approach to solve problems that are encountered in the physical world. Instead of focusing on the solution to a particular problem I encourage them to focus on the problem-solving methodology. This approach makes them think independently."
