Students leverage the power of humanities and social sciences to improve critical thinking, communication, creativity, logic and innovation.
In a shift away from lectures, our active-learning teaching methods make students – not instructors – the center of classroom attention.
Students learn by doing – the hands-on hallmark of the Polytechnic learning environment. They gain, apply, and ultimately demonstrate new expertise.
Every student has multiple opportunities to connect with a faculty mentor for outside-the-classroom professional guidance and support.
Learning how to do something by understanding why it is done, within the context of how it relates to other subject matters, ties courses together.
Plans of study include internships or other workforce-like activities, while college staff forge corporate partnerships to increase student opportunities.
Team projects expose students to team dynamics, deadlines and problem-solving techniques, all aspects employees deal with in the workforce.
Students build professional portfolios and hone industry skills, demonstrating that they not only know things, but, most importantly, they can do things.
Students gain insights into cultures other than their own, broadening their perspectives and becoming more marketable to employers.
Two-semester projects require teams of seniors to apply everything they have learned to solve industry challenges for real clients.
