Lei Yu, Ph.D., P.E., Dean and Professor, College of Science, Engineering and Technology

You are invited to explore the College of Science, Engineering and Technology (COSET) at Texas Southern University through this website, where you will find exciting educational opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, cutting-edge research activities of world-class scholars and top-of-the-line laboratories enhance undergraduate and graduate student learning through their participation in faculty research.

We are changing higher education to reflect the interdisciplinary mastery required for success in the information age. In our ten academic departments and a number of specialized programs and centers of research, we are developing cooperative relationships between disciplines to prepare students with the critical thinking and analytical skills needed for success in the new world economy.

Society has become more complex than ever and cannot fit into single disciplines. Students need broad knowledge of many subjects and an understanding of how all the disciplines come together to explain the phenomena that we experience and work with today. We must take care of the physical environment we live in while producing sustainable implementations of science, engineering and technology. All of our departments focus on learning outcomes for students, to ensure that the students have high quality educations. Students will develop critical thinking skills, communication skills—both written and oral—problem solving skills in an interdisciplinary environment, and research and inquiry skills. All of these capabilities will integrate in the preparation of students to become competitive.
