Why Choose CCSU?

School of Engineering, Science & Technology

The School of Engineering, Science, and Technology will prepare you to enter one of the most exciting new professional fields and to become a leader in the high-demand STEM disciplines. The workplace of the future will be highly dependent on professionals who can expertly combine their knowledge and experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The School is one of only two public institutions in Connecticut offering undergraduate engineering programs and is focused on experiential learning and team work. Our excellent professors will help you establish a solid foundation in basic science and math and then challenge you with exciting hands-on projects that will enable you to work with diverse teams to solve real-world problems in a wide range of disciplines—engineering, computer science, manufacturing, mathematics, technology, construction, life sciences, graphics, physics, and earth sciences.

"I had a computer engineering internship last summer, where I worked on a group project, on servers, and with hedge fund companies. The company called me recently, and they want me to come back and work for them. CCSU has really opened opportunities for me."

Luckner Noel, Class of 2012, Computer Engineering & Technology

Our programs adhere to the highest standards and are nationally accredited by

"We surveyed the site and then we had first-hand experience in designing the roadway and the bridge, which included determining the loads the bridge must carry and the sizing of the structure to support the loads."

Cool Stuff You Can Do In The School Of Engineering, Science & Technology
  • Using their skills in engineering, science, management, technology, and design, SES&T students have recently —
  • Designed and built a supermileage competition vehicle that won the Best Newcomer award
  • Combined their knowledge as computer science majors with the managerial expertise of School of Business students to win The Hartford Technical Case Competition.
  • Experimented with bio-fuels for use as advanced rocket fuels on a student-faculty designed and built hybrid propellant rocket engine
  • Designed and manufactured critical components to enhance data accuracy for CCSU's new 30 ft. wind tunnel in the new Anthony & Helen G. Bichum Engineering Lab
  • Created apps and GPS-based solutions while advising the Connecticut Department of Transportation on the state's new CTfastrak busway program
  • Published two peer-reviewed articles as co-authors with a biomolecular sciences professor

If you're a student at one of the ConnSCU institutions, it's good to know that CCSU participates in the College of Technology Pathway Program, which will provide you with a direct route to CCSU without loss of credit or repeated courses.
