The CoE for ICT has participated for over a year as a core advisor for the Advanced Technological Education Television (ATETV), a Web-based video series and interactive network designed to connect students and professionals with careers in advanced technology. The Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Project funded in part by the National Science Foundation, ATETV shows how ATE is relevant to the modern workplace and to attract students to this growing field. (Click on the “fuel cell vehicle” image to view the video.) You will also find a number of other stories about the challenges, the process, and the experience of success as your colleagues, peers, in college find exciting, rewarding careers in emerging technologies.
Globalization has changed the scope of our workforce, creating new opportunities and greater demand for workers in the fields of science and technology. In order to drive our economy forward, we must recruit, train, and place technically skilled professionals to meet new demand.
