Newsletter from NJ Secretary of Higher Education: Collaborations to Meet the Demand for STEM Jobs

Labor forecasts predict that there will be at least 248,000 jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in New Jersey by 2018, an 11 percent increase from the number of STEM jobs in the State today. Some forecasts say the increase will be even greater. 

We welcome this trend in New Jersey and know that higher education will play an important role in honing the skills of our workforce, which is already one of the best-educated labor talent pools in the country. STEM careers are changing the future, from extending and saving lives to revolutionizing business and industry. Integrating STEM with other disciplines encourages creativity, imagination, problem solving and other critical skills needed in the workplace and in life.
