Iowa’s STEM workforce is ready for your company

July 11, 2016

Iowa currently ranks fifth among all states in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) degrees earned per 1,000 residents, according to a new analysis by Iowa State University faculty. For companies that rely on STEM workers, especially those in the advanced manufacturing, biosciences or financial services industries, this finding means one thing: You have a readily available skilled workforce in Iowa.

When you also factor in that Iowa has one of the lowest costs of doing business in the country, excellent quality of life and a robust transportation infrastructure network, then Iowa should be a candidate for your next expansion or new project.
