Careers in STEM Fields

Excellent opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

“Almost all of our students find jobs as soon as they graduate, and sometimes even before graduation, with starting salaries approaching $50,000. So they pay maybe $15,000 for a two-year associate degree, and get a job that pays $50,000. If people understood how good a deal this is, they’d be beating down our door!”

Prof. Joe Cunningham, Dept. Chair, Industrial Design, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Robotics and Automation Engineering Technologies
