Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics


Career Summary

The Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) cluster provides thousands of career opportunities for learners with an interest in math, science, and problem-solving. Students who pursue one of these careers will be involved in planning, managing, and providing valuable scientific research and technical services. Job possibilities abound, even in economic downturns, as more scientists and engineers are called upon to create solutions for problems ranging from the environmental to the economic, the aeronautical to the zoological  This Youth Apprenticeship occupational area focuses on both pathways within the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) industry: Engineering & Technology and Science & Math. In the Engineering and Technology pathway, students study and apply principles of science and math to solve problems in engineering projects involving design, development or production in various technologies. Careers in the Science and Math pathway apply essential math and science content in a real-world application to increase knowledge in physical, environmental and human endeavors.
