Our Mission

Our mission is to provide the best possible educational opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to prepare students for rewarding and challenging careers or for further education.

CST's degree programs help students hone critical thinking and communication skills as they master the fundamental principles and methods of their selected disciplines.  Beyond the classroom students find multiple options for hands-on participation in research, design projects and internships, and the chance to develop new perspectives by studying abroad.

​CST supports basic and applied research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, allowing faculty and students to work closely together on cutting-edge investigations.  CST research leads to important advances in knowledge and to practical outcomes such as scientific information for policy-makers to facilitate the sustainable use of natural resources, as well as supporting industries and economic development in Michigan and beyond.​
