More than a college, this is a mandate

The world demands more experts in technological fields. And we answered. We attracted the best faculty in STEM. We dedicated even more resources for research and facilities. In order to guarantee that the next generation could solve the problems they’ll face, we created greater opportunity for our students to apply what they learn in the classroom as well as the chance to stand at the forefront of knowledge generation. We met all of these needs, reorganizing our programs and centering these disciplines into a college that is building the future. Learn more about CEIAS.



NAU Giving Day is a great opportunity to join our future focused mission preparing students to enter the STEM workforce. Looking for a way to make your impact? Consider one of these priority funds:
