School of Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering

Since its founding, the College of Charleston has been known for its commitment to the study and pursuit of new knowledge in the sciences and mathematics. The School of Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering is proud to carry this tradition into the 21st century with its seven award-winning departments: Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer Science, Geology & Environmental Geosciences, EngineeringMathematics, and Physics & Astronomy. The School also offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Systems Engineering and Electrical Engineering with a focus on autonomous electrical vehicles in order to directly support the many high-tech manufacturing companies in the area, including Boeing, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz Vans, Volvo, and others. 

Besides traditional majors and minors in those departments, students can study meteorology, computing in the arts, archaeology, marine biologyneuroscience, and environmental and sustainability studies. From the molecular basis of life to supernovae, we offer opportunities for participating in cutting-edge research. We are one of the top feeders of students to the Medical University of South Carolina, the top producer of physics graduates in the state of South Carolina, the first in the country to offer a data science undergraduate degree, and our graduates enroll in top professional and graduate programs around the country or secure lucrative careers with many of our industry partners in the region or nationally.
