Providing Access to STEM Education
The School of STEM is committed to providing access to students from diverse backgrounds and under-represented populations
- 40%of STEM students at UW Bothell are from diverse backgrounds
- 26%of UW Bothell STEM students are female
- 33%of STEM students are Veterans.
From the Dean:
The School of STEM is built upon the UW Bothell tradition of innovation and creativity. We’re adding talented new faculty and new degree programs to meet the need for more STEM graduates in Washington state. Students learn by doing hands-on projects in close collaboration with faculty. Our proximity to Seattle’s high-tech industry enables our students to land internships and jobs with some of the best-known companies in the nation. At the UW Bothell School of STEM, we are committed to student success.Elaine Scott
School of STEM Approved
The UW Board of Regents approved the consolidation of the Computing and Software Systems Program (CSS) and the Science and Technology Program (S & T) into a new School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at its meeting in February. The new school will build on existing strengths and facilitate increased collaboration among faculty, staff, and students in curricula, research, and community partnerships. The School of STEM is the third School to be established as part of UW Bothell’s ongoing transition to schools as its primary academic units. Elaine Scott, Ph.D., has been named dean of the new school.
Jaffe Wins Fulbright Award
Dan Jaffe, Ph.D., Professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Chemistry in the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Washington Bothell, has received a 2013-14 Fulbright Award.
Jaffe will spend a quarter as the distinguished chair in environmental sciences at the Parthenope, University of Naples, Italy. He is expected to travel to Naples in spring, 2014.
"This is a very exciting opportunity to go somewhere new and interact with people who are interested in sustainability," Jaffe says. "I am looking forward to interacting with students from another culture."
Jaffe will conduct research with colleagues based in Rome, and will also teach classes at the University of Naples. Details
"UW Bothell's smaller community encourages more interaction with professors; students receive feedback quickly and obtain valuable resources for career development. In the electrical engineering program we work directly with industry professionals and our professors. We face real world problems and get a lot of hands-on experience. At the end of the program, our final design is a finished product -- all the way from the circuit board design to product packaging."Julia Shagdai, Senior, Electrical Engineering
Opening in 2014, the new Science and Academic Building will 74,000 square foot building which will accommodate 1,000 full-time students.
