Studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)
Individuals with skills in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) are in high demand. CCSNH colleges offer a wide selection of programs in STEM fields, leading to a certificate or associate degree. Graduates of these programs earn the credentials they need to transition into the workforce or continue their studies at a four-year college or university
STEM Fields Provide Career Opportunities
Most STEM occupations require study beyond high school. Earning a specialized STEM-related certificate, associate degree, bachelor’s degree or advanced degree can lead to work in these areas:
STEM Programs Designed for Advancement
CCSNH colleges offer STEM programs in areas that range from automotive technology, health information technology and electronic engineering technology to mechanical design, information systems technology and biotechnology. STEM fields of study often include a crossover between STEM areas. The study of robotics, for example, includes mathematics, physics, design, and mechanical and electronic engineering.
CCSNH works collaboratively with New Hampshire companies to customize the education and training incorporated into STEM degree and certificate programs. For example, CCSNH colleges offer Advanced Manufacturing degree, certificate and training programs that reflect the particular high-technology requirements of NH manufacturers seeking employees with advanced manufacturing skills.
STEM programs at CCSNH colleges are focused on helping students gain the specific knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the STEM field of their choice.
