The Student Center for Science Engagement

YOUR CONNECTION TO ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS IN THE SCIENCES

The Student Center for Science Engagement (SCSE) is a friendly space where students gather to study and talk about science, located in Bernard Brommel Hall (BBH), Room 247. At the SCSE, students form study groups, receive tutoring and get individualized guidance on preparing for science-oriented careers. Visit our office in BBH 235 to receive advising. 

Central to the mission of the SCSE is to support the academic challenges and career development of NEIU students. In particular, the SCSE assists students interested in or majoring and minoring in the following disciplines:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Earth Science
  • Environmental Science
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Psychology

Students are supported as they prepare for graduate school and jobs that leverage their scientific training. 


What SCSE Offers

  • Mentorship and advising on academic and professional topics
  • Tutoring in science and math courses, and a summer GRE preparation class
  • Professional development workshops on topics, such as applying for internships, preparing for graduate school and searching for jobs in the STEM fields
  • Guidance on summer research opportunities
  • Support to attend and present research at scientific conferences
  • Assistance with graduate school exploration and application
  • Introduction to professional opportunities and guest speakers discussing exciting career possibilities
