Engineering, Math & Sciences Pathway


Engineering, Math & Sciences Pathway Logo


CCC2University Logo

Mathematics and science are critical areas for a rapidly changing, increasing competitive global economy and society.  "To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation).  Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life, and as the workplace changes, STEM knowledge and skills grow in importance for a variety of workers (not just for mathematicians and scientists). 


There are several exciting work avenues to pursue:  scientific research in laboratories or in the field, involvement in the planning and design of products and systems, and working as support for scientists, mathmeticians, or engineers so they can do their work.   All of the opportunities in Math & Sciences involve gathering and processing data to solve problems.
