Welcome to the Department of Natural Sciences and Engineering Technology

Our department brings together knowledgeable and experienced faculty from a variety of scientific and technical disciplines, enabling us to maintain a close alliance between theory and practice in all areas of study.

In addition to teaching service courses in science and mathematics to students throughout the University, we offer a number of baccalaureate and associate degree programs that prepare graduates for rewarding and successful careers. These innovative programs—some of them unique in the Pittsburgh region—are all taught by full-time faculty and practicing professionals from industry. In each of these programs, class sizes are small, teachers care about their students, and excellent facilities create a productive learning environment.

I invite you to explore this site and learn more about the educational experiences that our department offers. If you have a question that is not answered by the material presented here, please use the contact information provided to telephone or email the appropriate member of the faculty or staff. You will receive a prompt and courteous reply to your question.

Best wishes,

Mark O. Farrell, Ph.D.
Chair of the Department of Natural Sciences and Engineering Technology
