Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Concerns about the quality of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and U.S. dominance in science and technology have been mounting for decades, and has risen to a new level with the publication of various reports in the last few years. In the 1980s, the U.S. led the world in the percentage of college graduates with STEM degrees. Today, we rank among the lowest in the world, and the level of interest of American students in technical disciplines continues to remain comparatively low.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recognizes the critical role that Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education plays in enabling the U.S. to remain the economic and technological leaders of the global marketplace, and enabling the Department of Defense and Army in the security of our Nation. We are committed to teaming with others to strengthen STEM-related programs that inspire current and future generations of young people to pursue careers in STEM fields.
