NEW STEM (Non-commissioned Officer Enhanced Workforce in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is a program designed specifically to connect veterans with professional and career opportunities that build upon their previous experience and optimize their degree interests. All veterans who have either been pre-approved for admission at UAH or who are currently enrolled at UAH and who are pursuing a degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) field can participate in NEW STEM, garnering a paid co-op program offered by a federal agency or private sector company in Huntsville, Alabama.

Upon graduation, co-ops are often given priority consideration for a permanent position with the organization they worked for during their co-operative assignment.

Program Requirements

NEW STEM applicants must have training, experience, or previous academic coursework in one of the following technical areas: engineering (chemical, civil, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, aerospace or optical), mathematics or science.

Those interested in applying should:

  • Have a complete Charger Path profile including an uploaded an approved professional resume
  • Complete the Supplemental Application Form and return it to Career Services, SSB205
  • Upon acceptance of a co-op offer, officially register your co-op with UAH through Career Services
