Over 2000 students are enrolled in the undergraduate and graduate programs and 100 full-time faculty members are involved in teaching, research and service. The College has major interdisciplinary research programs in Biomedical Science, Environmental Science and Computational Science. Teams of faculty researchers join with graduate and undergraduate students to solve problems in engineering, bioremediation, atmospheric science, molecular structure and dynamics, human health and other problems in basic and applied science. The faculty has produced outstanding research and members publish in prestigious journals. Many of our undergraduate students have gone on to become research faculty, medical professionals, industrial scientists and entrepreneurs.
As we advance in this millennium, we are redefining the Jackson State University College of Science, Engineering and Technology. The School’s Ph.D. programs in Chemistry and Environmental Science, our dedicated young faculty, our strong emphasis on undergraduate research, continued commitment to recruiting highly motivated students and continued growth in other innovative programs, will help to define our future.
