Welcome to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at the University of Leeds

There has never been a more important time to expand our knowledge and capability across the STEM subject areas. To do this we need STEM graduates, who can continue to increase our understanding of the way our universe works and apply the knowledge we discover to meet and resolve current and future challenges.

See the impact that you could make by studying for a degree in the STEM subject area.

 Take a look at the subjects that make up STEM.

What is STEM?

The STEM acronym brings together the words science, technology, engineering and mathematics – words which are associated with some of the most important and exciting areas of human endeavour.

Whether it is creating new lightweight alloys for aircraft design; formulating life saving drugs to combat disease; designing processes to reduce CO2emissions; developing technologies to build tablet computers; or sending a man to the moon, STEM knowledge has impacted all of our lives.

Whilst a science education is essential to take up a career as a doctor or dentist, the term STEM does not directly refer to those areas of medicine or healthcare which deal with diagnosis and treatment.

The knowledge and skills gained in the STEM subject areas can however be applied in a number of career paths, which are equally valuable in caring for the needs of humanity.

At the University of Leeds our teaching and research covers all the subject areas that make up STEM.
