STEM Centers

Wake Tech’s STEM Centers offer a comfortable, collaborative environment where students can work together, share ideas and support each other in the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The centers have wireless access, space for study groups and plenty of whiteboards for unraveling difficult concepts and exploring possibilities.

STEM Centers were established as a resource for students in the STEM fields, providing opportunities for them to interact with faculty members and other professionals as well as peers. At the centers, students can find tutoring assistance, impromptu advising and insights into career options. They can learn firsthand what it’s like to be a biologist or physicist or engineer. 


Wake Tech’s STEM Labs enhance the learning experience with a hands-on approach. Computers are available for learning more about specific software, and whiteboards allow for troubleshooting and project planning. The lab setting encourages conceptual development through direct applications and targeted problem-solving. Have a problem you can’t solve? Visit a STEM Lab.
