What is STEM-E?

STEM-E is a collection of science based subjects, the acronym stands for Science, Technology and Mathematics. It is a deviation from the popular acronym STEM, which also includes Engineering. The main goal of STEM-E is to highlight the paths that exist in science courses and careers outside of engineering.

INTRODUCTION

President Kalaam’s India ‘Vision 2020’ spoke of transforming India into a haven of development characterized by the democratic values of equality, fraternity, and justice. Along with reducing poverty, increasing economic output, making healthcare and education more widespread and harbouring peace and prosperity, President Kalaam dreamt of India as a hub for scientists and scholars.

Unfortunately, in India, there is a lack of vision beyond engineering and medical sciences. Parents, teachers, and friends believe that science is linked solely to these two fields of study and that the pure sciences have no scope. My own personal experience is a testament to this style of thought. Whether it was while choosing my subjects in class 11 and 12 or while selecting a career option, I have felt that beyond engineering  & medicine, pure science leads only to careers in teaching and research. Under the pressures from people around, the stress of entrance exams and cutthroat competitions or lack of interest in the beaten track, many students crumble. Every year it is extremely saddening to hear of tragedies about students in preparatory classes for engineering and medicine. At the same time, there is a massive influx of engineers and doctors and a vacuum in students pursuing the pure sciences who then move into pivotal career paths.

It is here that STEM-E comes into the picture. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, a collection of science-based subjects. At STEM-E it is our objective to show the path in science subjects other than engineering by elaborating on courses available in these subjects, the colleges that offer them and the multitude of career options that then open up.

It is imperative that we show the way to others who like me have had difficulties in choosing their path in the sciences and know that the options are unlimited. In this spirit, we can be closer to achieving and succeeding in building the India that ‘Vision 2020’ envisages.
