Dean’s Welcome

Science and technology have never been more relevant to our every day lives nor provided more opportunities than they do today, and your interest in these areas suggests that you want to be a part of an even more exciting future. I encourage you to follow the links on this page to explore our departments and investigate our programs of study. The departments of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Computer Science and Information Technology, Engineering Studies, Mathematics, and Psychology offer majors and minors in these disciplines. We also emphasize learning experiences beyond the classroom, through research opportunities and internships.

I am very proud that Armstrong has been recognized as an “Approved StemJobs College” in 2014 and 2015. We were recognized for aligning our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs with high paying jobs that are in demand; offering programs, resources, and relationships that help our students get jobs; attracting and supporting diverse students and faculties in STEM fields; and offering specific resources and services dedicated to supporting STEM student achievement and success.

Please contact me if you have questions about the College of Science and Technology.
