STEMNET is the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Network and it creates opportunities to inspire young people in STEM subjects. Since SCISYS employs many graduates in numerate disciplines it has a vested interest in encouraging school children to take up these STEM subjects.
SCISYS needs a steady source of software engineers to support its future growth. STEM subjects are critical to developing a deep knowledge of software development techniques and an understanding of hardware and network technologies that are essential to a digitally connected world.
SCISYS does this by having a number of STEM Ambassadors that are active in helping local schools and colleges by bringing STEM career opportunities to life. Our ambassadors are great role-models that motivate and inspire young people by telling how they can build a career in the software industry by using examples of real industrial case studies.
SCISYS has a number of members of staff that participate in STEM activities organised by STEMNet (http://www.stemnet.org.uk/). Our STEM Ambassadors represent a wide diversity of business and technical domains including:
- Software engineering using a variety of programming languages
- Real-time monitoring and control, with hardware integration
- Robotics and autonomy
- Spacecraft onboard software and satellite control
- Business applications
- Data analytics and simulation
Our staff are excellent role models for students aspiring to take up STEM subjects and can offer a wealth of advice on careers. They can also provide a wealth of advice and guidance for teachers looking to support STEM subjects, especially with support for software development.
