The School responded to the needs of the region’s telecommunications industry by establishing the Masters Degree Program in Computer and Engineering Sciences. Regional telecommunications firms contributed $8.7 million to the program, enabling SSU to establish the Cerent Engineering Science Laboratories.

A name change from the School of Natural Sciences to the School of Science and Technology reflects the changing nature of the curriculum that emphasizes the integration of technology in the various disciplines.

The School has initiated the Center for Research and Education in Science and Technology (CREST).


The Department of Nursing now offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing that students earn concurrently with their RN license.

Under the leadership of Lynn Cominsky, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, SSU leads the Education and Public Outreach programs for three NASA satellite missions. More than $5 million in NASA funding has been awarded to SSU to develop educational materials for high schools, as well as television programs, interactive web tools and planetarium shows. The program has created the North Bay Science project to provide training for more than 140 local elementary and middle school teachers. The group also produces science education materials that it distributed to more than 200,000 teachers nation-wide and hosts five web sites with more than a half million viewers.
