Start Training for a Career in STEM

STEM is an acronym for academic programs based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. While industries are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers in the growing STEM sector, many workers face displacement or underemployment.

At MxCC, students learn how to apply science to solve problems through lab experiences, research, and course work to think collaboratively and critically as they prepare for future success in class and in career pathways. They develop abilities to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments. They learn new concepts and techniques as required for continuing professional development and prepare to take industry-based certification exams.

Many of the degree programs are designed for students to transfer to institutions with bachelor’s degree programs in related fields or for entry into industry positions.
