About the Department

The College of Science and Engineering includes eight academic departments which offer 42 academic major programs at the undergraduate level and 13 graduate programs. The programs are housed in 5 main campus buildings, including the new Biosciences Building which opened in the Fall of 2016.
In 2010, Central Michigan University was awarded a $10 million grant to implement a basin-wide Great Lakes coastal wetland monitoring program. The project was in support of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and Great Lakes Water Quality Act and was funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Extensive data on all components of the ecosystems, including plants, invertebrates, fish, amphibians and birds, with accompanying physical/chemical data, were collected over a five-year period. CMU received an additional $10 million in 2015 to continue the work for an additional five years. These data are intended to aid protection and restoration efforts across the entire Great Lakes basin. To learn more about the department, visit the departmental website .
