To continue to grow the U.S. economy the challenge is two-fold: (1) increasing the number of STEM professionals and (2) increasing the number of college graduates. Education and skills in STEM are important in today’s global economy that is increasingly focused on high-growth and technology-driven occupations. Yet, many states face a shortage of STEM-skilled students and workers.
STEM occupations include professionals such as computer engineers, petroleum engineers, mechanical engineers, mathematicians, software designers, and life science technicians. STEM is the sixth-largest occupational cluster and will provide the sixth-largest share of job openings in the economy over the next decade.
At least 8 million of the jobs available to college graduates in 2018 will be in STEM professions. Approximately half of these positions will be entirely new occupations and the remaining positions will be jobs vacated by retiring professionals. STEM engineers and technicians will be critical for supporting industry sectors such as energy, aerospace, manufacturing, bioscience, agriculture, and healthcare.
The School of Math, Science, and Engineering Faculty is seen above. We are committed to providing your child with the tools to succeed in post secondary STEM environments. We invite you to participate in your child's education! Share your expertise as a guest speaker or volunteer your time with our Advisory Board. Help us work as a team for the success of your child.
