Welcome to the MC Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) Area!
As the Interim Instructional
Dean of Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) area at Montgomery College,
Maryland, I welcome you to our website. The instructional area of SET consists
of departments offering associate degrees in Physics, Engineering,
Computer Science, Cybersecurity, and Network and Wireless
As part of the Montgomery
College mission of empowering students to change their lives, we are committed
to providing quality instruction that leads to understanding and competence
suitable for the emerging global economy.
Montgomery College, home
to the nation's largest engineering transfer
has more than 1,400 students. Many of our students transfer to the University
of Maryland, Georgia Tech, and George Washington University.
Most of the undergraduate
courses are transferable to top tier four-year institutions. Students in these
courses have numerous academic enhancement opportunities through student clubs,
internships, and undergraduate research.
Our academic programs in
the Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) disciplines have grant support
exceeding $2.0 million, including funding from the National Science Foundation
S-STEM scholarship program, Department of Education FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education) grant and funding for
mobile classrooms, the Gates-funded t-STEM grant, and the American Association
of Colleges and Universities Teaching to Increase
Diversity and Equity in STEM (TIDES) grants.
Students enrolled in our
classes may obtain tutoring and other support through Learning Centers &
Academic Support Centers at the Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma
Park/Silver Spring campuses. The Office of Internships helps students obtain
internships in local science and engineering-based companies and federal
agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute
of Standards and Technology (NIST). The internship office also supports applications
for undergraduate research, including research supported by the National
Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for
Undergraduates (REU) program.
Our academic programs are
diverse and rich in opportunities for our students. Please visit our department
and program sites for further details and feel free to contact me should you
