TSU has been dynamic in changing programs to accommodate its industrial and business constituents. The University enhanced its efforts by creating the College of Science and Technology in 1984 as one of the first institutions totally committed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, years before the term STEM came into use. The college has ten departments with 11 Bachelor’s degrees, 5 Master’s degrees, and an interdisciplinary Doctor of Philosophy degree. Bachelor’s degree offerings are in mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, civil engineering technology, computer engineering technology, electronics engineering technology, industrial technology, aviation science management and maritime transportation management and security. Master’s degrees are offered in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental toxicology, and transportation planning and management, and a Ph.D. degree is offered in environmental toxicology.
Many faculty members are active in research and development in cutting edge areas. The College has research centers that include students in active research. Students in physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science are actively engaged. The faculty and their students are active in publishing journal articles, conference proceedings/research reports, and books. These activities are summarized in the annual reports of the college.
