STEM programs

Every year, more and more students choose STEM disciplines at Arizona State University and graduate to pursue STEM-based career fields.

ASU is constantly striving to better connect with and contribute to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Community. One way the university is doing this is through partner programs supported by university initiatives or with National Science Foundation funding.

Our STEM programs are part of hundreds of community engagement programs across the Valley designed to tap into and inspire early STEM interests, from summer programs to world-class museums, internships, events and K-12 activities. Read more about some of our outstanding programs in our 2018 report below.
