"Enhancing Student Success and Encouraging Diversity in STEM Pathways"


Welcome to the El Camino College STEM webpage! Congratulations on taking this important step towards exploring the different STEM degrees, opportunities, programs, services, and majors offered at El Camino College for STEM majors.

El Camino College strives to become part of the solution to creating greater STEM competence, success, and future careers within the diverse community it serves. As a result, El Camino College, with grant funding from the Department of Education, initiated a STEM Project that aims to increase the number of students pursuing and succeeding in STEM disciplines and transfers to four year universities or entering the related work force. The STEM Project initiated and enhanced programs at El Camino College in an effort to enrich STEM at ECC.
