The School of Science, Engineering and Technology at St. Mary’s transcends the traditional classroom framework by placing a greater emphasis on hands-on scientific research experience. Under highly educated faculty members, students are meticulously prepared for pursuit of a variety of careers in the scientific field of their choice.
In addition to implementing a progressive and innovative academic curriculum for its students, the school undertakes a broader mission of outreach and service to strengthen its ties in the local community. Students are encouraged to volunteer and participate in a variety of programs that not only allow them to demonstrate their skills, but will serve the public as well.
Innovation and ingenuity are abound in the School of Science, Engineering and Technology. One of our most exciting new capabilities is three-dimensional printing. Watch a demonstration below.
