Growing a strong STEM workforce: Connecting education to careers
Who needs science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) education? You do — if you plan to stay relevant in the workplace.
Today, 20 percent of all jobs require a high level of proficiency in any one of the four STEM disciplines. In broader terms, 71 percent of all jobs in our evolving, knowledge-based global economy are STEM-related in some way.
But there’s a shortage of employees who are prepared to meet this growing demand.
In consultation with STEM industry organizations, University of Phoenix is focused on identifying key STEM skills gaps and developing a portfolio of degree and certificate programs, professional development courses, career services and academic support to help enhance our students’ workforce performance and meet employers’ STEM talent needs.
