A student who majors in STEM is able to use every opportunity in his or her education to become more skilled and knowledgeable in the field – taking advantage of opportunities to be mentored by individuals and companies such as Boeing and Monsanto.

Westminster received a $65,000 grant from the William R. Orthwein, Jr. and Laura Rand Orthwein Foundation to get the program up and running.

The STEM major at Westminster includes classes such as Introduction to Engineering Design (IED – the first of several Project Lead the Way courses), Principles of Engineering (POE), and Applied Scientific Research (ASR), as well as STEM Symposium, seminars, and service opportunities. Students who are interested may choose from three different tracks toward a major or minor.
