Mission of the Division of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

The mission of the Division of  Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics is to provide quality educational opportunities in four discipline areas. In the area of technology, students will learn innovative techniques and upcoming trends in computer systems, programming, networking, and security. The discipline of engineering will provide students with a foundation to design and build solutions for the problems of tomorrow. In the concentration for mathematics, students will increase their quantitative understanding of concepts relevant to their area of study. Energy, construction, welding, and engineering technologies relate theoretical concepts to the actual production of goods and services using technologically advanced equipment and processes. All discipline areas strive to align
