Seminole State College of Florida has been named a 2015 STEM Jobs Approved College. This honor, given by Victory Media Inc., is awarded to schools that show a strong commitment to students interested in STEM programs and careers.
The 2015 STEM Jobs Approved Colleges list is the first of its kind to rate universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools on their responsiveness and relevance to high-demand, high-growth STEM occupations.
Seminole State was among more than 1,600 schools that participated in the STEM Jobs survey process. Each school was evaluated on publicly available data and on their responses to questions related to how their programs align with STEM jobs, STEM career placement and the diversity of their STEM programs.
Seminole State will be featured in the winter 2015 issue of STEM Jobs magazine.
Seminole State offers more than 40 STEM programs, including Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in Engineering Technology and Information Systems Technology.
The college also supports students interested in STEM careers through the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Bridges to Baccalaureate program. The LSAMP grant program, funded by the National Science Foundation, supports students on the path to a bachelor's degree and career in STEM.

About STEM Jobs Ratings
The STEM Jobs Approved Colleges survey measures how effectively schools align their programs to high demand, high paying STEM jobs, and how well they assist their students in achieving career aspirations in STEM fields. Ratings are based on a complimentary and rigorous quantitative assessment that measures schools on criteria created by Victory Media with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board. A complete description of our methodology, advisory board and services is available at www.stemjobs.com.
