by StudyMalaysia.com on May 27, 2016 | Top Stories

So what is STEM education?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – but what courses come under this field of study? STEM is a very vast field that continually sees new changes and additions; to understand STEM better, let's break it down into its sub-fields.

Mathematics and Statistics

  • Mathematics (applied mathematics, pure mathematics, systems science)
  • Statistics (actuarial science, statistics, applied statistics)

This field is about the study of abstract deductive systems, numerical facts, data and their applications. Mathematicians analyse and develop mathematical systems and theories; and use systematic methods to prove theorems. They also use mathematical methods and modelling techniques to solve practical problems.

Examples of courses in this sub-field:

  • Engineering (aerospace, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, biomedical, industrial, material, mechanical)
  • Mechanic and metal works
  • Electricity and energy
  • Electronics and automation
  • Chemical and process engineering
  • Motor vehicles, ships and aircraft

Engineering is the study of the design, composition, manufacture, maintenance and functioning of machines, products, systems and structures. Engineers convert scientific knowledge into technology that is used in the design and production of useful products and services.

Engineering is the practical application of science and math to solve problems. Engineers design, evaluate, develop, test, modify, install, inspect and maintain a wide variety of products and systems that is found all around us. Engineering technologies improve the ways that we communicate, live, work, travel, stay healthy, and entertain ourselves.
