Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Workforce Division
NDIA's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Workforce Division provides a forum for effective interaction between government, industry, academia, and the public at large for the strengthening of the national security STEM workforce.
The U.S. is not turning out the engineering students that we need to in order to compete as an innovative country. The skill level in science and math reasoning among the students coming out of high school is not where it needs to be. There are not enough U.S. students that are interested in the STEM fields.
- Increase NDIA’s participation in exciting and attracting K-12 students into STEM careers.
- Maximize cooperation between federal departments, agencies, and industry on STEM workforce development initiatives.
- Support the development of integrated polices around the STEM workforce.
- Establish partnerships to collect and disseminate information and coordinate resources to build a robust STEM workforce of the future.
