Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)

STEM careers are often considered the careers of the future, as society gains knowledge, innovation increases, and emerging technologies become mainstream. People who specialize in those technologies enjoy excellent career opportunities.

Many career paths in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics didn’t even exist 20 years ago—or even 10 years ago. Research and development have opened up entire worlds to us. Think of nanotechnology: the creation of materials and machines so small they are invisible to the naked eye—and yet they’re accomplishing amazing medical and manufacturing feats. Imagine all the possibilities that a STEM career can open up for you. With a background in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, you could be involved in:

  • Robotics 
  • Biochemistry 
  • Mechanical engineering 
  • Neurobiology 
  • Biomechanics 
  • Biotechnology 
  • Atmospheric sciences 
  • Nuclear physics 
  • Industrial engineering 
  • Geographical Information Systems (GIS) 
  • Astrophysics and astronomy

If you are not only fascinated by understanding how the world works, but also want to learn more about where science and technology have yet to go, a STEM career is for you.
