Swenson College of Science and Engineering
Swenson Science Building on the UMD campus

The College includes the departments of Aerospace Studies, Biology, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Geological Sciences, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics and Physics. Our faculty are internationally recognized for their academic and research achievements.

Duluth is located at the westernmost tip of Lake Superior, halfway between Minneapolis/St. Paul and the Canadian border. Industries include aviation design and manufacturing, tourism (3.5 million visitors per year), healthcare, finance and banking, mining, paper, communications, higher education and shipping. Yes, winter gets cold sometimes and we usually get quite a bit of snow...but outdoor opportunities abound in the city and surrounding area all year round. Outdoor Magazine recently named Duluth its runner-up "Best Adventure Hub" in the world

The Swenson College of Science and Engineering is growing steadily and our plans include increases in faculty, undergraduate and graduate programs as well as enrollment.
