Student Body

While class profiles change from year to year, the following profile is representative of a typical SCM class.  Diversity in the student body is an important characteristic of the SCM program. While applicants are expected to have an aptitude for analytical thinking, they do not need to have an undergraduate degree in engineering. We invite students of all disciplines to apply.
