The research method uses conceptual description analysis on the problem of STEM literacy needs in maritime colleges. STEM literacy includes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics literacy. Some of the established indicators can use several references from AAAS, ABET, NRC, NCTM, OECD, and ITEA. According to Bloom's taxonomist, the ability level of cadets according to the author can be implemented at levels C4, C5, and C6 for the cognitive domain.
