Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Division
The Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics Division has four Associate in Science degree programs: Mathematics & Natural Science (MNS), Science for Health Professions (HSCI) and Engineering (EGR). 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 & Economic Development Division) that focuses on teaching technical skills.
