The career cluster called STEM, short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, offers career options related to exciting innovations that will lead economic growth in Wisconsin and beyond. Wisconsin’s Technical Colleges offer the most efficient path to a STEM career. With a balance of math and science, along with hands-on skills center classes that develop career potential. This program seems very focused on getting you working and getting you into the job field and that’s something that I really appreciate. What makes the technical colleges ideal for beginning a STEM career? For one thing, the classes are small, which means the instructors get to know their students and help advise them, which really ensures their success. I was surprised and really happy about the one-on-one you can get. You get a lot of one-on-one attention, one-on-one time. Technical college instructors are experts in their field. They have both the theory and the direct experience in a career to engage and teach their students. They also know firsthand what employers need to deliver success. All of our courses are geared toward meeting those skills that industry is looking for. For students interested in continuing their education, many of the credits will transfer to a four-year college or university. If you’re detail-oriented, curious and like to solve problems, consider a STEM career. Graduates of STEM programs will impact their communities and the world with their contributions.
