STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The STEM disciplines have been a major focus over the last decade because of their emphasis on important skills such as problem-solving, gathering and interpreting evidence, and making sense of information. STEM is often referred to in the context of education and integrating disciplines, and it continues to be a key area of focus for job growth and development. As the need for STEM professionals continues to grow, many education institutions are working hard to promote STEM to their own students as well as reach out to the local community.   

The STEM programs at College of DuPage provide you with the academic background and training needed to successfully pursue an advanced degree or career in today's world. These programs cover a wide range of technical fields for every area of interest.

The goal of STEM at COD is to enhance the quality of our STEM instructional and outreach programs and to help current and future COD students prepare for careers in STEM.

Our objectives are threefold:

  1. to develop a series of STEM outreach activities designed for high school students, current COD students, and for the larger community.
  2. to increase enrollments in STEM and Career and Technical Education fields at College of DuPage and maintain or increase persistence in these degrees.
  3. to raise awareness of the numerous STEM programs offered by College of DuPage. 
     

Many of our STEM programs and events are federally funded. Please refer to specific program and event pages for more information.
