About the School of Science, Technology & Engineering Management

The faculty of the  School of Science, Technology, and Engineering Management teach the methods of science and engineering to future leaders in the sciences by immersing them in a modern learning environment, featuring close student-faculty engagement in leading-edge research programs.


The School consists of two academic units:  The  Department of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computer Sciences and the Institute for Applied Computer Applications and Engineering Management.

Department of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computer Sciences
The Department of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Computer Sciences offers traditional undergraduate programs in the health, life, physical, and computer sciences. Emphasis is on hands-on research and laboratory experience in preparation for graduate and professional school as well as preparation for professional positions in the engineering and high-technology industries.

Institute for Applied Computer Applications and Engineering Management
The Institute for Applied Computer Applications and Engineering Management includes programs for professionals, scientists, and engineers to advance their careers into executive leadership positions, requiring strategic decision-making, interdisciplinary skills, and the ability to  successfully manage resources. Programs focus on the interdependence of technology and management as the core foundation required to prepare students to become technical leaders.

Faculty pursue research and other scholarly activities, and are committed to delivering an outstanding science education to students. Students learn current science and technology in the laboratory, in the classroom, and by participating in faculty-directed research, tailored to students’ needs.

The School offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, and Mathematics as well as a pre-Engineering program offered with Florida International University and a pre-Nursing Program offered with the University of Miami. The School also offers minors in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Science. Concentrations are offered in Forensic Science, linked with either a degree in Biology or Chemistry.

Specialization Options


The Pre-Professional Studies Specialization is available to our students in the Biology program seeking careers in medicine, dentistry, podiatry, pharmacy, optometry, chiropractic or veterinary medicine. Depending on their professional aspirations and in consultation with our faculty and their respective advisors, these students are offered the courses needed to meet their pre-professional requirements, including a science-based education, opportunities for research, and hands-on experience in their chosen field.  In addition, students receive strong analytical and communication skills.

Undergraduate Research
The undergraduate experience at St. Thomas University offers a hands-on approach to scientific development. Our school is firmly committed to undergraduate research opportunities. Our School provides our students the opportunity to engage in independent research either during the school year or during the summer. Opportunities for research exist on campus and with partnered universities and colleges across the state and country.
