A STEAM-focused degree can lead to a world of opportunities!

STEM and STEAM graduates work for all types of employers in business, education, government, non-profits, manufacturing, entertainment, and more.

Think you will sit in an office all day? Not necessarily! As an example, software engineers go underwater to help scientists understand better the ocean; zoo keepers manage animals in their habitats; meteorologists assess damage from weather-related disasters; and forensic scientists conduct investigations in the field. What they all have in common are the skills required to succeed – the ability to think critically, work collaboratively, communicate, and solve problems creatively.
