ADMIT IT: YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN A STANDOUT. A GEEK. YOU’RE THE KID WHO “GOT IT” IN CLASS. NEW THEOREMS. BREAKTHROUGH CONCEPTS. FRESH IDEAS. NO PROBLEM.
But you took things even further. You re-imagined. Explored new ways. Looked beyond the ‘what if?’ to the ‘why not?’ Chances are you found it, or will. Someone like you can’t settle for an ordinary college. You need a university that’s laser-focused on what you love most: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). You need a university that helps you grow your exceptional gifts, hones your skills, and immerses you in your field while you’re in school.
A lot of colleges talk a good game about experiential learning, but Harrisburg University of Science and Technology actually delivers the programs that will make a difference in your future success,
All Harrisburg University undergraduate students – regardless of major – complete an internship of at least 135 hours in their field. This is a real-world experience that is highly valued by future employers. It can make a difference in whether YOU get the job or the other guy. Plus, every student completes two projects that give hands-on real-world experience working in the field. When an employer asks if you can do the job, you’ll be able to say, “here’s the proof!”
It adds up to the most complete preparation for post-university success available anywhere. And it’s all available to you at HU.
