Dr. Christine Hailey, Dean, College of Science and Engineering

Welcome to the College of Science and Engineering website.

I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our undergraduate, graduate and research programs.

We prepare undergraduate and graduate students for careers in the natural and physical sciences, mathematics, computer science, engineering, and engineering technology. The faculty and staff in the College of Science and Engineering are committed to preparing students to be leaders in a world characterized by the rapid pace of emerging technologies and new scientific discoveries. We do this by immersing our students in a robust curriculum and applied learning experiences in laboratory research, field study, and design.

A hallmark of our College is the high-quality research of our faculty. State-of-the-art research findings are shared with students in the classroom and benefit the state of Texas and the nation. I am pleased to note that many of our faculty are collaborative and interdisciplinary researchers, and they are able to bring the important skills of leading a team and participating as a team member into the classroom.

To further learn about the undergraduate and graduate degrees offered in the College, I encourage you to visit the websites of the departments of Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Engineering Technology, Mathematics, and Physics; the Ingram School of Engineering; and the Materials Science, Engineering, and Commercialization Program. You will find that we offer a broad spectrum of educational resources, cross-disciplinary training, and career preparedness for our majors.
