​T​he STEM Institute was established in 2009 to provide a transformative experience for scholars as they pursue their education with Dallas College, in preparation for university transfer and to fill a critical workforce need for prepared professionals in STEM fields.

While the Institute has successfully supported more than 600 students with scholarships and mentoring in traditional STEM fields of study, the new design will support thousands of current and prospective students, educators and professionals.

The Institute includes support for all areas of STEM, including computer science, construction, electronics, engineering, logistics, manufacturing, nanotechnology, renewable/sustainable energy and more.
