For a century, student scientists have been turning dreams into reality through their work at Northwest Nazarene University. NNU’s historic commitment to the sciences can be traced back to the work of professors like C.V. Marshall (pictured above in 1919), who taught sciences and mathematics in the young college’s early years.
From playing a major role in the development of the Manhattan Project to serving as a United States astronaut, NNU professors and alumni have been at the center of scientific and mathematical development for decades. With state-of-the-art facilities and professors committed to keeping their students’ work at the pinnacle of scientific research through expansive grants and collaborative research, you can be assured that a degree from NNU will give you an edge when you begin to explore your future career.
Recently, NNU students collaborated in August 2013 with NASA and American Semiconductor, Inc. to launch an experimental payload 100 miles into space with the RockSat-X program from the Wallop Space Center in Virginia. This was the fifth project in five years that NNU students were privileged to work directly with NASA, and is just an example of the kinds of opportunities that are available through NNU’s programs.
