At San Francisco State's College of Science and Engineering students find faculty who encourage them to think beyond traditional barriers. The faculty of the College are committed to creating and maintaining connections with our students, professional scientists and engineers, and to the scientific community of the Bay Area. In so doing, we act as the vital link connecting students to the world of science.
The college is committed to the philosophy that the best education of its students comes through involvement in research and the solution of real-world problems. To carry out that objective, we must recruit and retain outstanding working scientists and engineers to our faculty, and be able to offer them and their students the most advanced facilities and equipment possible.
In addition to our active research faculty, we have many state-of-the-art facilities and research centers that offer unique research experiences for students at all levels, from undergraduate to post-doc: the Conservation Genetics Laboratory, the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, an electron microscope facility, computational chemistry and visualization laboratory, a DNA analysis facility, a Thin Film Laboratory, a molecular biology core facility, the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Center, and an Alpha 3000 internet server dubbed theCity.
