Building on a tradition of excellence.

Our Mission

At Swenson College, we educate undergraduate and graduate students in the natural sciences, mathematical sciences, engineering, technology, and interdisciplinary work branching into these fields. We provide students with a rigorous curriculum and innovative opportunities to collaborate with faculty in theoretical and applied research and service activities related to our disciplines. Students are prepared to: solve problems that benefit society; be members of the work force; and be successful participants in professional and other advanced degree programs. Our faculty are actively engaged in professional and institutional service and outreach efforts in the community.
