Construction, Engineering, Science and Maths
Welcome to the dynamic world of Construction, Engineering, Mathematics, and Science!
Our region is building an enviable reputation for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and careers linked to the net zero transition. With offshore wind farm development planned around the coastline of the Highlands and Islands, major new manufacturing activity supported by the Inverness & Cromarty Firth Green Freeport, and space projects in Sutherland and the Outer Hebrides, the demand for skilled workers in STEM qualifications will be huge. Supporting these developments will be a construction sector expected to grow by almost 250,000 workers by the end of 2025.
