Welcome to the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Dean Judd Case

It is an exciting time to be in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as STEM jobs have grown three times faster than non-STEM jobs in the past ten years. The College is comprised of seven departments (see below)  with the College steadily increasing student enrollments at more than 3% for the past three years. EWU's 2012-13  fall enrollment was more than 12,500 students.  Our College engages over 29 percent of the total university student population in courses delivered by our faculty, and we do not see that decreasing any time soon. The academic departments: Biology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Computer Science, Engineering & Design, Geology, Mathematics, and Physics are in very high demand, especially the Engineering & Design and Computer Science programs.

We are committed to high quality undergraduate and graduate education as well as high standards for our faculty, students and staff.  We encourage and support faculty and student research and fund students to present their research at off campus venues such as the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) or research societies of their respective disciplines. EWU is proud to be hosting the 2015 NCUR conference in Cheney, Wash.

In spring of 2010 we completed the pre-design phase for a new science center to house the departments of Chemistry/Biochemistry and Physics.  The state funding for the design phase of the new building is on hold until Patterson Hall remodel is further along, so that the design plans will be completed closer to the time of construction.  Science Complex I will be located across the "science quad" from the current science and computing/engineering sciences buildings on the site currently occupied by Reid School. 

There are many exciting things happening in the College and the university as a whole. Some recent highlights are:

  • The Mechanical Engineering program received its ABET accreditation in August of 2013.
  • The Electrical Engineering program received its first ABET accreditation in August of 2008 and is pending renewed accrediation effective August 2014. In 2010, the program expanded to the west side of the state with a branch at North Seattle Community College.
  • The Department of Computer Science received a total clean slate from ABET on its site visit in fall 2010.
  • We have degree completion programs located at, Bellevue College, Clark College, Pierce College Shoreline Community College, and South Seattle Community College with new programs being developed at Lake Washington Technical College.

Please browse our website. From here you can link to all seven departments, explore degree programs, research and internship opportunities, and find further information on our College.  We hope you enjoy your visit.
