Abstract

Increasing communication between government schools, universities, and industry can benefit STEM education programs and STEM careers. These collaborations are pertinent in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because the nation is aiming to meet the growing demand for a future STEM workforce by increasing the number of students pursuing STEM careers. The main purpose of the study is to investigate the stakeholder’s perceptions and responses on STEM education programs, STEM careers, and triple helix components (THC) in the UAE. The researcher employed a quantitative methods approach for this study that used questionnaires. The results from this study showed that the stakeholders had positive perceptions on STEM education programs, STEM careers, and THC. Further investigation is needed to gain more information about the significant differences in perspectives between and within the stakeholder clusters.
