With the world ever growing and changing, we are entering the next industrial revolution. STEM education is the most highly sought after in the current and future job market. Job security and earning potential aside, STEM students will inevitably pave the way for a better future.
STEM, an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math, is a term for the integration of these four disciplines into a fast-growing and impactful industry with problem-solving at its core.
Many fields are considered STEM, including biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, all types of engineering, and mathematics, but the term is still expanding. For a comprehensive list of STEM fields, see the DHS STEM Designated Degree Program List, but note that different organizations and countries may have varying definitions of the term.
Degrees in STEM fields tend to be some of the most demanding in terms of workload and credit hours required. However, these programs prepare students for jobs which are growing in demand and pay significantly more than non-STEM careers. Whether you are still choosing a major, looking for ways to get more involved with STEM, or seeking employment in a STEM field, this website can help. A good place to start is the STEM programs page.
