    • 8. Newer ERAU Majors Commercial Space Operations Cyber Intelligence and Security Global Security and Intelligence Studies Unmanned Aircraft Systems Science Homeland Security
    • 9. How do Graduates Make a Difference in the World? Guidance Systems for satellites and missiles Components of NextGen national airspace system Avionics systems for general aviation, commercial, and military aircraft Implementing communications systems for aircraft and spacecraft Mission software for the Space Shuttle or Curiosity Rover. Developing infrastructures such as airports, seaports, bridges, space stations
    • 10. Supply & Demand Growth in STEM jobs was 3 times as fast as in non-STEM jobs over the last 10 years The average annual supply of graduates of bachelor’s degree programs has been decreasing Employers cannot fill all of the available positions Wages are 26% higher in STEM fields OPT is 12 + 17 months
    • 11. Supply & Demand Total STEM jobs are projected to grow from 6.8 million to 8 million by 2018 2.4 million total job openings by 2018 (1.1 million due to new growth and 1.3 million replacement) The annual supply of bachelor’s degrees awarded in STEM fields dropped 25% between 1985 and 2009 (24% vs. 18%) Georgetown U. Center on Education and the Workforce
    • 12. 26% Higher Wages Those with lower educational attainment in STEM earn more than those with higher levels of education in non-STEM fields 65% of bachelor’s degrees in STEM earn more than master’s degrees in non-STEM occupations 47% of bachelor’s degrees in STEM earn more than Ph.D.s in non-STEM occupations Georgetown U. Center on Education and the Workforce

    • 16. High School Preparation Take as much math and science as possible. In the US system, we expect to see 4 years of math and 3 years of lab-science, AP courses provide advanced standing. In IB schools, SL math and physics are acceptable, but HL will get you advanced standing.
    • 17. More support leads to success Tutoring programs and study groups Mentoring from faculty STEM clubs, field trips, science competitions Summer camps
