We help you utilize the latest technology and understand its impact on the world.
You’ll be taught by faculty with years of experience teaching and working in their fields. Our faculty are passionate about their disciplines and their role in both the lab and the classroom. They are innovative and resourceful. They engage students in the process of discovery and the contribution of new knowledge to their fields.

Comfortable spaces throughout campus offer places to relax or work on projects and team assignments. Our community of more than 20,000 students, faculty, and staff has made a commitment to advance sustainability in all areas—in academic programs and research initiatives, in our campus operations and consumption practices.
