At the heart of the College of Sciences and Technology (CST) experience are major opportunities for students to engage in undergraduate research, working with UHD professors as well as researchers at neighboring research institutions. Similar high-impact experiences are available to students in every program in the college in a variety of contexts ranging from capstone experiences, senior projects, and field experiences.

Additionally, students have opportunities for hands-on teaching experience through the UHD Noyce Mathematics and Science Teacher Scholarship Programs, participation in international summer research, and the Scholars Academy.

CST continuously works with government and industry through cooperative research programs and grants, which enhance the educational environment and experiences of our majors. Students learn by working in diverse teams on faculty-led projects, gaining hands-on experience, and advancing their skills and qualifications. Further, our partnership with industry provides opportunities to use their knowledge in professional settings.
