About CSE

From the depths of the Great Lakes to the farthest corners of the universe, roll up your sleeves and dive in on day one at Central Michigan University.

Take your learning outside the classroom and onto the international stage by studying abroad, where you can fight poverty in Belize by constructing greenhouses to grow food.

Our faculty's research advances the management of natural resources and supports industry and economic development not just in Michigan, but across the United States.​

Mission and vision

Our mission is to give you the best possible educational opportunities and prepare you for a rewarding and challenging career in science or engineering.

Here, you'll hone your critical thinking and communication skills and master the fundamental principles of whatever field ignites your passion for STEM.

Beyond the classroom, you'll participate in hands-on research, design projects and internships, and take advantage of study abroad opportunities in locations like Ireland, South Africa and the Galapagos Islands.

You'll work alongside faculty whose research advances the sustainable management of natural resources, and whose innovations support industry and economic development in Michigan and beyond.​
