STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)

In this advanced technological era, more students than ever before are pursuing careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. And the rewards are great! A solid STEM education provides a strong foundation to open doors for many opportunities following graduation. In fact, economic forecasts project a 20 – 33 percent increase in scientific and technical occupations within the coming decade. Oakton’s STEM program also provides a perfect springboard for transferring to a four-year college or university.
