Global progress relies on professionals trained in science and engineering. These leaders advance the fields of aerospace, communications, transportation, medicine, manufacturing and more. A shortage of qualified individuals means that top employers are competing for candidates with the right degrees and experience.

A distance learning science and engineering degree provides the flexibility necessary for busy experts to learn on the go. Students build their skills in critical thinking, problem solving, analysis and research from their hotel rooms, office desks or living room recliners. Courses meet the needs of an online audience without merely copying the format of a traditional classroom.

The wide range of scientific jobs means that virtually everyone can find a fascinating degree. Distance learning options typically cover a variety of interests at the undergraduate and graduate levels. For instance, if you want to design bridges and airports that withstand the test of time, consider civil engineering. To develop tools or reduce waste on a daily basis, look at mechanical engineering or industrial engineering.

To play a part in the latest portable music player, navigation system or communications satellite, get an electrical engineering degree or an electronics engineering degree. Some of these skills overlap with computer engineering, which typically involves circuit boards, computer chips and complex hardware problems.

If the idea of working in an office and sitting through meetings doesn’t appeal to you, you may prefer one of the vocational sciences. These subjects typically involve the great outdoors and hands-on experiences. For example, with a degree in environmental science, you could prevent the next food safety recall, reduce the water pollution flowing from factories or clean up contaminated soil in local ecosystems. A biotechnology degree advances your career in genetics, drug research and agricultural breeding. A construction management degree could put you in charge of building the tallest skyscraper, the most advanced hospital or the fastest railway. Finally, a distance learning degree in fire science could put you at the heart of an arson investigation or wildfire prevention.

No matter the subject area, an online science degree combines advanced technology with the practical knowledge that employers demand. Many companies and government agencies even offer grants and scholarships to help students succeed in the most lucrative fields. Now is the best time to take advantage of America’s push for more STEM graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
