Victory Media has honored Armstrong University’s College of science and Technology their second consecutive year as a 2016 STEM Jobs Approved College.
The university will be featured in the Winter 2016 issue of STEM Jobs magazine.
This unique list is the only one of its kind that rates universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools on their responsiveness and relevance to high-demand, high-growth science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) occupations, according to a spokeswoman for the school, Melanie Simon.
This is an affirmation of our strong STEM coursework that allows our students to effectively transition with their degree from Armstrong to their next career step.” says Dr. Brent Feske, associate dean of Armstrong’s College of Science and Technology.
Institutions were scored on publicly available data and responses to questions around four key indicators that demonstrate the extent to which a university works to provide opportunities for students to explore STEM subjects, promote partnerships fostering STEM literacy and promote STEM programs that actively attract and engage under-represented student populations.
“With our STEM Jobs Approved awards, we’re able to help educators evaluate whether they’re meeting the needs of students by employing the kinds of programs that our research shows are most effective in getting students involved in STEM,” notes Glen Zollman, vice president of STEM Jobs. “We’re pleased to showcase schools like Armstrong State University as an institution leading the way in this area.”
