Houston Named the No. 2 City for STEM Jobs
Sure, Houston can boast that it’s the Energy Capital of the World. That’s undisputed. However, Houston also is making strides in the wider range of STEM fields — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
A new study from the American Enterprise Institute’s Housing Center finds Houston is No. 2 among the best U.S. metro areas for STEM workers. The study notes that the vibrancy of home construction helped Houston maintain a high rate of employment growth and a high score for home affordability.
Whether Houston stands at No. 2 or No. 33, business leaders are confident the region is fertile territory for STEM.
