Engineering and Innovation Learning Community

The Engineering and Innovation Learning Community is an excellent opportunity for you to live in a community of scholars that share a commitment to the fields of engineering, physics and flight science. Located in Grand Hall, this community is extremely popular with first-year Parks College students.

Faculty Associate

Scott A. Sell, Ph.D. is currently an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering in Parks College of Engineering, Aviation, and Technology at Saint Louis University. Dr. Sell’s Tissue Engineering Scaffold Fabrication Lab focuses on the fabrication and evaluation of tissue engineering scaffolds capable of replicating both the form and function of the native extracellular matrix (ECM). Dr. Sell is also heavily interested in engineering and entrepreneurship education; having worked closely with both the Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN) and the Coleman Foundation, and been selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium in 2016.

Dr. Sell has over 65 peer reviewed publications, over 150 conference abstracts, and 3150+ citations of his work. He has also been the recipient of several prestigious awards during his time at SLU.

The thing I love the most about living in the Engineering and Innovation Learning Community is that you get to live on the same floor with the people who will be in your classes for the next four years. This guarantees that you’ll have some amazing friends and resources not only for your first year, but for the rest of college, as well.
