STEM COLLEGE ADMISSIONS –
IT’S UNIQUE and MULTI-DISCIPLINARY
WHAT IS A STEM MAJOR?
Is there a GAMER in your house? The team of computer scientists, mathematicians, artists, musicians, and business majors that bring you TWITCH– LIVE GAMING STREAMING are incredibly passionate about what they do and are well educated team players who earn some very impressive starting salaries. Parents – if you don’t know about TWITCH– you’re dating yourselves! The marketing dollars collected on TWITCH – astounding- but does it all come together? Again- business analytics, computers science, mathematics, social media – all fields to consider.
Palitair – not a household name- right? The name of this BILLION dollar IPO was created by its founders based on a connection to the Lord of the Rings. Palitair is committed to using “big data analytics”, AI and ML to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. The founders are an interesting group of former Stanford grad students on a mission. I recently learned that my brother lived in the same dorm as one of the primary founders when they were freshman at Haverford together — “everyone knew Andy would do something amazing one day”.
I’m sure you are curious about how to live longer- what to eat or not to eat? A team of food scientists, bio-chemists, exercise scientists and marketing specialists deliver the latest information to your your social media newsfeed.
Clearly, in the past two years, we’ve all become well versed on what an infectious disease specialist does and how these scientists/MDs are working closely with computational biologists and public relations specialists to track, treat, and communicate with the public regarding COVID.
But it’s finance experts who are working closely with biologists to understand and model relevant information into investment and economic decision making. THE POINT – DECISIONS MAKING in nearly every imaginable situation has become COMPLETELY TEAM based and MULTI-DISCIPLINARY!
Data, data and more data– the computer scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, informational scientists, computational finance majors and an array of related STEM/Business majors are exploring all sorts of interesting problems more accurately and efficiently than ever.
