College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Greetings from the Dean




Welcome to the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) at Alabama State University! We are proud of the quality of the education and research of our College; and inspired by the capabilities, achievements and innovativeness of our students, graduates, faculty, and staff. As we continue on our CSTEM trajectory of excellence, we invite you to visit us to learn more about how you can be part of our future.

We are located in the heart of the state and national civil rights city of Montgomery, the capital of Alabama. Our bachelors, masters, and doctoral degree programs are distributed across various departments –Biological Sciences, Biomedical EngineeringPhysical/Forensic  Sciences and Mathematics & Computer  Science.

The work of our students and faculty members are internationally ​​​​​recognized. At the CSTEM, we have a rich and well established legacy of producing some of the most outstanding scientists that include biologists, physical scientists, chemists, computer scientists, forensic chemists, forensic scientists, mathematicians, microbiologists,  technologists and engineers in the nation. Our graduates are skilled in critical thinking, leadership, creative design, and the application of technological and scientific solutions to complex and challenging problems, interpersonal relations and teamwork. We have a long  and distinguished tradition of excellence in all of our educational programs; and our faculty and students are conducting pioneering research focused on creating nationally and globally-relevant solutions and on providing advanced methods and products for improving  quality of life.
We are particularly proud of being the home of the National Science Foundation’s Center for NanoBiotechnology Research (CNBR) and in collaborative partnerships with national and international Universities. The College is also home to two newly established centers – the Center of Excellence for Communication Systems and Image Processing (CECSIP) and the STEM Center of Excellence for Modeling and Simulation Research (SCEMSR). Together, our College’s educational and research endeavors have resulted in the CSTEM’s increase in enrollment in our undergraduate and graduate students; attracting also an increase in the CSTEM’s annual research awards in recent years.
This is a wonderful time to be a part of Alabama State University’s College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The college aspires to expand to the other STEM fields of study including the engineering and technology programs. We encourage you to learn more about us and invite you to visit our campus to see first-hand what sets us apart in excellence and education. Synergize your strengths with ours as we fulfill Our Vision: To have a more inclusive, socially connected, and scholarly STEM Education. And as we leave up to the spirit our College motto: “…..redefining the boundaries beyond our imaginations…..”
