Science and Technology – Research
STEM research integrates and applies science and mathematics to real-world problems.
Kean's science and technology research program enables our students to select one of three tracks -- biotechnology sciences, computational sciences and engineering, and engineering -- as they study in state-of-the-art facilities and prepare for successful careers in the sciences. The program offers a core curriculum in the first two years that integrates science and mathematics courses linked to problem-solving and hands-on laboratory courses to reinforce the classroom content.
Students earn their bachelor's and master's degrees in the accelerated five-year program, laying the groundwork for a future developing programs, apps and games that revolutionize modern life; designing biomedical equipment and devices; implementing new procedures; and conducting research to solve clinical and engineering challenges.
STEM research graduates have thriving careers in research and development, pharmaceuticals, medicine, biotechnology, software, computing and marketing, advancing science and society through their work.
I like the diverse culture of Kean University. The dorms are beautiful, and Kean enabled me to earn my B.S. and M.S. in five years."
At Kean, we believe learning extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms and labs. That's why we encourage you to get involved in clubs and organizations, study abroad at our campus in China or elsewhere, and pursue internships that will advance your career. Find out more.
