The FBI has notified all Philadelphia area colleges and universities about a recent social media posting threatening violence at an unspecified Philadelphia area college or university on Monday, October 5 at 2 p.m. EST. Since the shooting last week at a community college in Oregon, the FBI has seen similar social media postings throughout the country. Delaware County Community College takes campus safety very seriously and in response to this threat the College has notified the local police departments presiding over all of the College's locations and is working in conjunction with them to enhance security. The College’s Office of Safety & Security will also increase security patrols on Monday and monitor the situation closely. We ask that you remain aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity or behaviors to Security at 610-359-5303. 

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Division

STEM Division

The Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics Division has four Associate in Science degree programs: Mathematics & Natural Science (MNS), Science for Health Professions (HSCI), Engineering (EGR), and Engineering Technology (EGRT). The courses in these programs are affordable (lower than all four-year post-secondary institutions in the region), transferable (to most area colleges and universities), and relevant (fulfill the freshman and sophomore year requirements of most area colleges and universities). 

Courses are offered in Mathematics (including non-credit courses to strengthen basic and developmental mathematics skills), Science, and Engineering.

The $60 million Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Complex opened in 2009-2010 and includes a four-story 105,000-square-foot STEM Center with mathematics, science, and engineering classrooms and laboratories, and a 32,000-square-foot Advanced Technology Center (shared with the Workforce Development & Community Education Division) that focuses on teaching technical skills.
