What are STEM and STEAM?

STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEAM recognizes the vital role the Arts play in interdisciplinary learning.

STEM Careers

A report by the U.S. Department of Commerce predicts that STEM jobs are expected to grow 8.9 percent from 2014 to 2024. However, STEM is not just for techies and nerds. As technology impacts every aspect of our lives, even occupations not labeled as STEM jobs are requiring more STEM skills. STEM professionals earn more than their non-STEM counterparts, but the rewards of a STEM education go well beyond a higher paycheck. Explore NTCC's STEM programs today.
