About the School of Mathematics Engineering and Business
Generating viable solutions to life's problems—and helping people in the process—can be very rewarding work. Our mathematics, engineering, or business departments will prepare you to make a difference in today's complex world.
The Engineering department is in high demand, and that's because students are challenged to find solutions to real-life problems. Through The Collaboratory for Strategic Partnerships and Applied Research, you might work on projects like our award-winning solar car, Genesis; conduct research on land-mine detection technology; design and install irrigation systems in West Africa; or soar high with the Flying Club.
As a student in our Management and Business department, you'll learn how to influence the workplace and the world by participating in study abroad programs, interning at companies and corporations throughout Central Pennsylvania, conducting research for local businesses and organizations, and volunteering on community service projects. Our students achieve great success: Accounting graduates pass the CPA exam at a rate that is twice the national average and the highest in the state.
As a Mathematics or Computer Science major, you can stretch your mind by competing at the national Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) championship programming contest (held in Hawaii in 2002), participating in related clubs, developing database applications for non-profit organizations, presenting papers at professional math meetings, working alongside researchers at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, or learning at a variety of internship settings in Central Pennsylvania.
