About STEM

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications:

STEM is important for future careers but also for national development. Products and services you use every day are shaped by science and technological innovations, from your smartphone to your fridge, ATMs and medicines. If you’re considering studying in these fields, there’s good news ahead: it’s been predicted that 75 per cent of all jobs will require STEM skills over the next decade (GUG 2016);

Think STEM is just for aspiring scientists, engineers and mathematicians? There are actually hundreds of specialisations, suiting any student who likes asking questions or being challenged. Expect institutions to offer everything from agriculture, astrophysics and ecology to game development, pharmacology and veterinary studies. You’ll find a great range of options within each field too. Considering engineering? Know that aerospace, audio, chemical, civil, electrical, marine, mining and product design are just a selection of the specialisations available;
