Now deployed across community colleges and universities nationwide, patented Pathevo® technology enables students to create highly personalized education and career plans to match their specific interests, goals and objectives.
Despite persistently high unemployment, hundreds of thousands of STEM jobs across the United States remain unfilled. Owen Software, believes there’s a STEM job for everyone and has made it their mission to help educators, employers and community organizers connect students, employees and veterans with a world of STEM possibilities. Pathevo STEM helps college students work with their academic advisors to identify and align their individual interests with STEM careers and then guides them through planning the education and career pathways that will help them successfully achieve their goals. Pathevo®-STEM is an essential resource for Community Colleges that seek to empower more students to pursue STEM certificates, degrees and careers. Veterans’ organizations, government agencies and workforce development organizations can harness Pathevo® to help unemployed or under-employed workers identify and pursue STEM careers by helping them explore the skills and training they need, then defining clear pathways from where they are to their ultimate goal.
