Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics

Educational programs in the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics Career Cluster are of interest to individuals who may want to use their abilities in problem solving, planning, and management to provide solutions to scientific and technical problems; and provide scientific research, professional, and technical services. Students learn how to apply concepts of mathematics, science, and technology to solve problems, and develop new processes, facilities, and devices to improve people's lives.

The DoDEA College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) for Career and Technical Education are adopted from the Common Career Technical Core. These standards are referenced as CCRS-CTE.
