Aspiring and Empowering the Next Generation

The Rowan University College of Science & Mathematics and Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering both hold pride for rejecting the status quo. We continually seek to expand and build upon our programs to strengthen the opportunities available for our students. As Mr. Rowan said, “Satisfaction has always been the enemy of progress.” It’s in that spirit that we’re never satisfied and always aspire to empower the next generation of great scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.
