STEM Careers Center

The STEM Careers Center at SCC is a resource for current and prospective students to learn about projects and majors at SCC that can lead to careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math fields.

Internship Opportunities:
The Community College Internships (CCI) Program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 15 participating DOE laboratories. They work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities supporting DOE’s mission, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers.

SCC Economics Professor Sandra Camarena posts to the “Excelencia in Education” blog about her experiences as a student and professor.

At SCC we subscribe to a broad definition of “STEM” that includes majors from the following divisions:

Advanced Technology
Business and Computer Information Sciences
Math, Science, and Engineering
Science and Allied Health

Women in STEM Majors

Job openings in STEM industries are projected to grow by over 19% in the next decade making it more important than ever to support women in their academic and career goals within science, technology, engineering, and math. Our team at is extending support through the publication of two new guides:

  • Women in STEM: an editorial exploration on the state of women in STEM with several interviews from women in the industry and a collection of scholarships.
  • Career Guide for STEM: featuring paths of study, specializations, job options, as well as an interview with a woman with 23 years of experience working in STEM.

Research Projects and Science Clubs at SCC:

One of the projects is a
collaboration between
SCC and UC Davis
Chemistry Departments.
Another project is
part of the
SCC SciTech Club.
