“At the School of Science and Engineering, excellence begins with faculty members who inspire and challenge every student. Our professors create an environment that encourages inquiry and rewards hard work. Students gain new insights by working with investigators on some of the most important and difficult scientific questions of our time. College is a journey full of horizon-expanding experiences that we invite you to enjoy at Duquesne.
While learning may start in the classroom, you will learn from your peers and your professors in a research setting while studying real-world scientific issues such as neurodegenerative diseases, tracking the trace amounts of toxic elements in soil, or understanding the neurological processing of pain. You will collaborate with experts in your field and share your scientific discoveries in-class and at national conferences.
Our achievements are made possible by the continued—and growing—involvement with alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and government agencies Their support means the college will continue to move forward and set new standards in research, teaching and engagement with the world. Our students are deeply committed to personal and professional excellence and we welcome and celebrate the diverse life experiences that they bring to our community.”
