How is STEM different at Trinity?
Undergraduate research is central to Trinity's approach to science, engineering science, and technology education. Each year hundreds of Trinity students participate in research projects, often supported by internal and external grants, alongside professors who are gifted teachers and accomplished scientists and scholars. The interdisciplinary nature of Trinity's curriculum exposes students to the excitement of discovery and encourages entrepreneurship.Trinity students work with the latest scientific instrumentation, and learn in extraordinary laboratory and learning spaces normally found only at the graduate level. Trinity's Center for the Sciences and Innovation, scheduled for final completion in 2014, will provide state-of-the-art facilities that are specifically designed to promote interdisciplinary activities among the sciences. The first phase of the Center opened earlier this year offering stunning, new teaching and research space that encourage collaborations between faculty and students.
