Packed with purpose

Technology is a key part of any business―and this dependence on technology is expected to be a key economic driver across all industries in the U.S.

GCU has responded to the demand for these specialized skills with degree programs that prepare people to work and advance in the STEM fields. Our goal is to create programs that are not focused on the way things have been done in the past. Instead, we formed our programs by incorporating the perspectives of key industry leaders and a focus on the next generation.

Nearly 50 percent of GCU students are already studying in STEM fields. By 2020, we hope to have 70 percent. Students studying STEM-related fields in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology will learn in a brand-new 84,105-square-foot classroom fully equipped with the latest equipment and technology. We are excited to announce a second classroom building identical in size breaking ground in anticipation of our growing engineering programs.
