This significant appointment reflects Biola University's commitment to advancing excellence in technology education and further establishes Biola’s School of Science, Technology and Health as a place for research and innovation in the field.

In Fall 2023, the School of Science, Technology and Health launched two new degrees: a B.S. in Robotics and a B.S. in Engineering. With a growing relevance in both fields, Biola is committed to cultivating an environment with resources and instruction that will equip students for both work and study. Designed to offer students with hands-on experiences, field-related knowledge and portfolio-ready projects, students will be led through the process of programming all the way to actuation. The hope with this intentional structure is that students are provided opportunities for future success and confidence for integrating faith to impact society at large.
