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!
