Through the Richard A. Henson School of Science and Technology, students can put their inquisitive natures and analytical skills to good use. They can learn to use applied robotics or 3-D printing for engineering, GIS for disaster management and mitigation, and clean energy alternatives or stem cells to improve and save lives. Alumnus and Dean Michael Scott says that the research he did as an undergraduate at SU led him to get a graduate degree, which led him to be a faculty member. He sees the Henson School having the same impact on so many SU students today.
The Henson School provides an outstanding, student-centered environment in which expert faculty empower students with knowledge and skills in majors including biology, chemistry, computer science, Earth science, geography, mathematics, physics, and urban and regional planning. Our graduate programs include applied biology, geographic information systems management and mathematics education. We take pride in recruiting diverse faculty and students and providing exceptional learning experiences beyond the classroom in field and laboratory settings. We also cultivate and maintain strong connections with employers and post-graduate programs to provide our students with successful and rewarding career trajectories.
