Science, Engineering, Technology, & Math

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics cluster uses your abilities in problem-solving and prepares for careers using science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.  People in this Career Cluster conduct in-depth research to provide solutions to a variety of technical problems within many different fields.  A postsecondary degree and relevant work experience are necessary to succeed in this field.

The employment of mechanical engineers is expected to increase, although that will vary by industry. The fields of alternative energies, nanotechnology, and remanufacturing are promising job areas for mechanical engineers. Mechanical engineers trained in the latest software will have better job prospects. The next decade also should see a larger need for biological technicians. These technicians play a vital role in helping scientists and researchers develop new treatments for diseases, such as cancer and Alzheimer’s.

The hiring of architectural and engineering managers should increase with the growth being dependent on the industries in which the managers work. Job applicants in this field should have better prospects if they have the technical knowledge, good communication skills, and years of work experience.
