Service to the community is an important mission we strive to fulfill. Our school seeks to have both a global scientific impact and an engaged and relevant local impact on technology-related industries in Miami and South Florida. Whether we are providing advanced workshops for teachers, demonstrating the state-of-the-art technology at an event, or providing at-risk students with opportunities to learn about technology, our faculty, staff, and students are committed to sharing our knowledge and talents for the betterment of society.
