Why SU SciTechathon?

We want to show you how enriching and interesting an education at Seattle University can be! Our excellent programs boast great teachers and opportunities to collaborate on frontier research, and our faculty, staff, and students form a close-knit and supportive community of scholars. Our students receive excellent preparation for graduate school or technical careers in teaching, engineering, or research, and in the meantime enjoy spending their college years in the beautiful, vibrant city of Seattle. SU SciTechathon is designed to give you a close look at what we have to offer and a sense of what studying physics, electrical, or computer engineering here would be like. We are confident you will like what you see, and we hope that many who attend will choose to enroll at Seattle University.
