The College of Science and Engineering is the STEM college at Seattle University, with more than a dozen majors spanning the fields of science, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. The College is dedicated to preparing students for responsible roles in their chosen professions and to advancing the educational qualifications of practicing professionals. Rooted in the Jesuit tradition of liberal education, the College seeks to foster among all Seattle University students an understanding of scientific inquiry and a critical appreciation of technological change, and to inspire them to lifelong intellectual, professional, and human growth.
The College of Science and Engineering has grown rapidly in the past decade to meet the region’s need for trained STEM professionals. More than 100 full-time and part-time faculty members offer a relevant, hands-on approach to STEM education to more than 1,300 undergraduate majors and graduate students. In Fall 2021, Seattle University will open the Janet and Jim Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation, the new heart of our campus. Once it if fully equipped, this new teaching and research facility will dramatically expand opportunities for students to engage with the most pressing problems of our time.
