Neuroscience Engineering Building ushers in new art at Wright State

3-D asterisks designed to mimic the firing of the brain’s neurons by creating complex, shifting patterns of light and shadow are part of a planned art installation for the new Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration Building. The instalation is called " Dial" as dozens of dials will be arranged in a grid  on the west wall of the atrium.

Efforts to enhance female STEMM success

Expanding the Women in Science Giving Circle

Thourgh the generosity of its donors, the Women in Science Giving Circle awards faculty grants of $5,000 and student scholarships of $1,500. Since 2008, The Circle has awarded a total of $74,000—10 faculty awards and 16 student scholarships. Awards are distributed to those who do research in everything from neuroscience to cell biology to psychology. 

STEM City, living and learning together

New innovative learning community

The goal of STEM City is to boost GPA's, expand social circles, create faculty-to-student connections and keep its residents interested in the sciences, said founder Jennifer Papadakis, academic advisor in the College of Science and Mathematics.

Thinking about graduate school?

Wright State University Graduate School created a video featuring students and faculty from the College of Science and Mathematics. Watch and learn about the exciting research opportunities available to you. 

Grad student is a rising star in terra-firma research

Environmental sciences Ph.D. student Behzad Ghanbarian is a prolific scholar. His mentor, physics professor Allen Hunt Ph.D., calls Ghanbrian's accomplisments "extraordinary." While he was doing research for his Ph.D., Ghanbarian discovered a paper written by Hunt, and began communicating with him. In 2010 he enrolled in Wright State’s environmental sciences Ph.D. program.

Dean's Message

Welcome to the College of Science and Mathematics of Wright State University. Research, the creation of knowledge, is vital to our mission, and provides a unique opportunity for our undergraduates to experience the world of science and mathematics at its cutting edge. The hands on, technologically advanced research and internship experiences of our students prepare them to be the workforce of tomorrow. Our goal is the enhancement of science and mathematics education and research at every level, so we reach out to the community and surrounding schools to provide positive science and math experiences in the form of teacher development, science fairs, demonstrations, mathematics competitions, Science Olympiad, and STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) summer camps. Have fun with Science and Mathematics!
