Academics

We didn’t become one of the highest-ranked STEM schools in the country by talking about ideas. We did it by building them.

LEARN IT, DO IT!

You’re smart and you catch on quickly. You want to get your hands right into projects so that you can test what you’ve learned. We built a school that allows motivated students to combine learning with doing—no waiting. A wide variety of minors and numerous opportunities to double major enable you to combine your passions and interests and improve your marketability.
