What is STEM?
The need for a school that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields was motivated by various studies that showed a very high demand for graduates in scientific and technology areas in the West African region due to the discovery of oil and gas, good port infrastructures and growing agri-business supported by a double digit economic growth.
