STEM at STCC
As the only technical community college in Massachusetts, STCC partners with local and national technology leaders to ensure that our programs continue to deliver the skills that future employers demand. Strong relationships and transfer agreements with local colleges and universities help ensure that STCC STEM graduates who wish to pursue their education beyond an Associate degree have well-defined and affordable options for doing so.
Massachusetts STEM Week is a statewide effort to boost the interest, awareness, and ability for all learners in STEM education.

STEM Starter Academy
The STEM Starter Academy provides incoming first-year students a jumpstart to their first semester on campus. Participants receive a funded academic experience, launching them into their first year with integrative experiences such as classes, tutoring and coaching, field trips, guest speakers, and hands-on experiences. During the academic year, students will also have access to coaching and tutoring support and participate in STEM Starter Academy events and activities. Students who are interested in participating must apply. Students of color and female students are strongly encouraged to apply.
School of Science, Technologies, Engineering, and Mathematics
The School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) offers a diverse range of programs for students who seek an education in areas such as the physical and natural sciences, engineering, advanced manufacturing, digital media and photography, computer science, cybersecurity, or mathematics.
Many of our students find secure, well-paying jobs immediately upon graduation while others choose to continue their interest in STEM disciplines at four-year colleges and universities. Our labs are state-of-the-art as STCC is the only technical community college in Massachusetts.
Located in Putnam Hall (B17), the STCC STEM Center serves students, faculty, and staff through its activities and resources. This dedicated space provides a computer lab featuring software STEM majors need to complete projects and research in addition to a study lounge. The center features a wall-mounted touchscreen panel for faculty lectures, talks by invited speakers, documentary screenings and discussions, or even student club or faculty meetings.
