St. Ambrose University Engineering, Physics and Math departments are poised to tap the untapped rural areas in eastern Iowa and Western Illinois to improve engineering and physics in higher education.
This project responds to employers' needs for more baccalaureate-prepared STEM graduates and helps national efforts to increase post-baccalaureate-trained engineers.
By 2017, St. Ambrose University will increase enrollment and graduation rates in industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and physics.
S-STEM scholarships are worth up to $10,000 per year per student toward tuition for incoming first-year, transfer and current SAU students.
At St. Ambrose, success is just part of the experience. Tutoring, career exploration, and research opportunities are some of the ways we ensure engagement–from enrollment to graduation.
