All about NAVSTEM

Rooted in Higher Ed

Founder and President Tom McElwee launched TWM Research in 1994 following a 7-year career at Prentice Hall.  The database marketing approach that he developed over two years for the leading engineering publisher provided double digit growth while increasing sales and marketing efficiency.

Since then, TWM Research has refined and improved its market database, while expanding from Engineering and Computing to Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Chemistry, Biology, Geosciences, Health, Nutrition and Psychology.

The change to NAVSTEM is natural – it simply explains our singular focus. We build market data to help our clients navigate complex and constantly changing STEM higher education markets.

Our Process

We build market data like Steinway builds pianos: hands-on, labor intensive, and detail-oriented to the smallest elements.

We have a unique, analytic approach to building data sets. Information is not just aggregated, but analyzed, processed and verified before it is added to NAVSTEM’s intelligent market database each semester. We  continually identify new products and assign them to competing materials to create accurate market definitions. This process gives NAVSTEM depth and breadth of curriculum knowledge that exists nowhere else.

Now covering a wider range of disciplines

Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Decision Sciences, Engineering (all disciplines), Environmental Science, Geography, Geology, Health, Information Technology, MIS, Mathematics, Oceanography, Nutrition, Physics, Psychology, Statistics

400+ Schools – Every Semester
