STEM encompasses the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and boasts one of the fastest-growing, highest-paying job sectors in the U.S.

Delaware County Community College is a leader in STEM education

Not only is the College considered a leader in the STEM fields, but we’ve also made major investments in STEM education.

  • The College features a brand-new $60 million STEM Complex, comprised of the high-tech STEM Center and the Advanced Technology Center
  • The Centers house 11 science laboratories and 12 specialized laboratories for customized education and hands-on training
  • Students can choose from 26 STEM associate degree and certificate programs
  • Our professors have the expertise to prepare you for a rewarding and profitable career

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, STEM-related job openings are projected to grow by 17 percent through 2018.

That’s nearly twice the rate of all other job fields.
