There is a need for literacy and proficiency in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) to thrive in the modern world. In addition, there is a national priority to transform STEM learning and engagement in order to meet the nation’s need for a STEM skilled workforce. The declining number of STEM workers not only challenges the competitiveness of the national economy but also presents an opportunity to attract a new and diverse pool of talent to STEM careers.
To meet these challenges, Center for Manufacturing Technology has designed STEM programs to target young adults and mid-career workers. The programs are offered to either further ones knowledge in the Manufacturing field or to start a new career as part of the skilled STEM workforce. Our strategy is to promote STEM training to interest young students in the Manufacturing Industry and STEM-related professions. Leading these efforts, Center for Manufacturing Technology plays a pivotal role in advancing the state goal of STEM education.
