Student Engagement

Success in IST is about more than the classes you choose. It’s about the opportunities you embrace to find out what matters to you and to provide you with the skills that make you well-rounded and versatile. And the more you learn about the College of IST, the more you’ll realize there is no typical student. Our students have widely varying backgrounds and interests. They are researchers, interns, student-athletes, musicians, fundraisers, and leaders in both technical and non-technical organizations.

So whether you want to engage with your peers through a student organization, conduct research alongside IST faculty, or make progress toward your degree in another country, IST and Penn State have a variety of experiences to help you blaze your own trail in and out of the classroom.
