Science, Engineering & Math, Part 2


Science, engineering and math degrees are on the verge of technology. It only makes sense they are tied to health and education industries, where the best technological advances are needed most. Job placement proves this to be true. Forty percent of all science students go on to earn a higher degree and majority occupy healthcare positions, becoming physicians, nurse practitioners and pharmacists. However, math degrees have proven to be a direct route into the education system. One, out of every five math students, goes on to use their skills in a classroom.
