So we have a lot of different hands on experience operating, troubleshooting, working with the different equipment.
One of the unique things of coming to a two year school, especially our school, is the small class size. So you're going to get one on one experience with an instructor in a classroom. So it's a much more intimate environment, and you get a lot more personalized support.
Our STEM students are involved a lot with the local community. Many of them, their programs include an internship or a cooperative experience, where they get to work firsthand in a local company to understand what it's like to work in that field. But also for the employer to get a firsthand look at them.
Besides getting a personal satisfaction being in a STEM field where you're solving real world problems, nationwide STEM graduates earn at least 26% more than their counterparts. It is estimated that 60% of the new jobs in the 21st century all will be STEM related.
