The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology offers more than 40 different major options and aims to provide a dynamic, hands-on approach to higher education, while fostering new and growing opportunities for students, faculty, and the community. Owning a laptop is a must for CSET students because many courses require computer software. Most opt for a Windows computer because of its analysis capabilities and because some software involved in the College is Windows-only. However, older models of Apple laptops may be able to run Windows on top of its operating system.
