College of Engineering and Natural Sciences

Mission

The College of Engineering and Natural Sciences provides high quality education, professional service to the region, and advancement of knowledge through the research activities of its faculty, students, and staff. The educational mission is four-fold: first, to provide all students basic instruction in the concepts of biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, and statistics; second, to provide undergraduate programs in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, and statistics; third, to provide instruction in the basic sciences as a foundation for students pursuing professional degrees in the health sciences and allied health fields; and fourth, to prepare students to successfully continue their education at the graduate school of their choice. Our professional service mission is through service to the institution, to the profession, to the community and to our students. Our advancement of knowledge mission is through the discovery and dissemination of new knowledge as well as through the advancement of teaching and learning. Our faculty are practicing mathematicians, engineers, and scientists who model the professional practice of their discipline through their own scholarly work and whenever possible with our students joining them as fellow practitioners.
