Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (SEM) jobs are expected to grow by nearly 20 percent within the next 10 years—a result of so many innovative ideas that can be made real by today’s advanced technology.
RMU’s SEM programs were implemented and designed to not only give students the tools to become accomplished engineers, scientists, doctors, and mathematicians, but also to gain practical, real-world experience before their job search begins.
SEM Program Innovations Lead to An Improved Way of Life
Students in our SEM programs improve upon existing designs, processes and products. First and foremost, our students are taught how to solve problems. Since most problem-solving challenges involve teams of people who specialize in different areas, RMU students acquire skills in project management, oral and written communication, interpersonal skills, and global perspectives. They learn to analyze and organize available resources to improve upon anything from software to transportation networks to educational systems.
It’s a global degree that has international impact. They study and tackle problems on environmental sustainability, improve biomechanical engineering medical device designs, and help farmers increase crop yields.
Our students have the knowledge and know-how to work in these fields and many others:
SEMs students also have access to the Robert Morris University SEMS Research & Outreach Center (SEMS-ROC). This facility is used by faculty and students from the science, engineering and mathematics departments for research projects, to pinpoint new SEMs opportunities, and to direct outreach activities so that RMU can connect the SEM program to our community. It’s another way that RMU ensures that students will have real-world learning experiences before graduating.
When RMU’s SEM students graduate, they will have the necessary skills to confidently build upon the research and advancements that have been made in the past few decades. We see our SEMs programs as the stepping stone to progress and innovation that will improve our planet and the people living here.
