How to Prepare for STEM Careers

Aug 20, 2018 | Kendall

STEM career opportunities in the U.S. are growing twice as fast as other professions. They make up over 90% of the best paying jobs straight out of college.


This exponential growth has created a situation in which the demand for qualified STEM professionals is high, but the supply of STEM workers to fill the positions is low, especially among women.


 What are some STEM-focused college majors and careers?

  • Life Sciences (Chemistry, NeuroBiology, BioChemistry, Chemical Engineering)
  • Accounting
  • Civil Engineering
  • Psychology
  • Statistics and Actuarial Science
  • Electrical and Acoustical Engineering
  • Computer Programming and Nanotechnology
  • Physics and Astronomy
  • Mathematics and Applied Mathematics 
  • Robotic and Mechanical Engineering
  • Geographic Information Systems and Atmospheric Sciences 
  • Educational / Instructional Technology and Research

Parents and families have an important role to play in closing the STEM gap, since they are primary influencers of the student’s perception of what is possible for their future. While there are many disciplines of study in the STEM fields, they are all formed on a strong foundation of Math. Trying to be great in a STEM field without strong Math skills is like having a great looking powerboat without an engine – you’re just not going to maximize your potential.
