Math and science are critical requirements to move into many in-demand jobs. Structural designer, construction manager, radio frequency field technician, computer-aided drafting and design operator, and civil engineer are just some of the jobs based on a solid understanding of math and science. Consider the numbers: technicians, skilled trades and engineers are among the top job categories around the world. Demand will only grow in those and other areas as 75 per cent of new jobs created from 2009 to 2018 will be in high-skill occupations – but the reality is that the majority of high school students stop taking science in Grade 10. And that’s where Humber’s General Arts and Science – Technology certificate program can help.
