A workforce with robust Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) capabilities is critical to sustaining U.S. preeminence. The Defense Intelligence Enterprise and the Department of Defense are in alignment with focused efforts to support an enduring STEM workforce.
The STEM Development Office, in the office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, established an Executive Board and Working Group comprised of representatives from across the Department: Army, Navy, Air Force, Acquisition, Intelligence, and Personnel and Readiness.

the department based on an examination of the current STEM workforce of DOD and the defense industrial base. Read the report online here.
