The new curriculum will include project-based learning through a capstone course. Electrical Engineering Technology – Smart Manufacturing Option

·      Smart Manufacturing career pathway initiative to attract underrepresented students in STEM into the program, promote careers in manufacturing to high school students and establish transfer agreements with four-year programs. In addition, the pathway will include entry points and fast track options for incumbent manufacturing and IT workers.

·      Smart Manufacturing Professional Development including Annual Smart Manufacturing Summit event for high school and community college instructors to increase awareness of Smart Manufacturing, corresponding careers, and degrees, and understand in-demand technician skills and knowledge.
