The College of Science and Engineering is “the STEM college”
at Seattle University, with more than a dozen majors spanning the fields of
science, health, 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.
