Those who choose careers in the Science and Mathematics pathway apply essential mathematics and science content and skills in a real world context. Science and mathematics occupations include those in physical, environmental and human endeavors. Career possibilities range from teachers of science and mathematics to lab technicians to NASA astronauts. Preparation for such occupations require the following: understanding the process and applying the skills necessary to engage in discovery; recognizing the need to obtain a broad education in science and mathematics and share (communicate) this knowledge with the world; and understanding the role of gathering, creating, processing and sharing data in science and mathematics.
Job opportunities are expected to be best for qualified graduates of science and mathematics training programs or applied science and mathematics programs who are trained on equipment used in industrial and government laboratories and production facilities. As the instrumentation and techniques used in industrial research, development and production become increasingly more complex, employers are seeking well-trained individuals with highly developed technical and communication skills.
