About NVCC's STEM Division
The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Division mission is to develop students’ mathematical, critical thinking, and science processing skills through active learning and the use of modern technology to prepare them for careers and further education. In addition, the Division provides specialized training in horticulture, manufacturing, and engineering technology that meets or exceeds industry standards.
To fulfill this mission, the STEM division offers 13 associate degree programs and 12 certificate programs. The degree programs include programs that prepare students for transfer to baccalaureate programs, programs that prepare students to directly enter the workforce, and programs that do both. The certificate programs prepare students to enter the workforce and teach students new skills to improve their job potential.
